Until the Quilt Show at Darling Harbour next year! Oh, I enjoy it so much and eagerly prepare for my time there. This year Lea & I stayed in Sydney for one night as we usually do the 7hr round trip in one very long day. We have talked for some time about having a "sleepover" and were fortunate enough to be able to do it this year. We left home at 0530hrs and headed for the big smoke, the only hiccup was a wrong turn near our destination...some frantic searching through the street directory...a little fraying of my good humour, but we finally arrived safely and hit the show!
Lots to see, but sadly some favourites were not there, like amitie and Patchwork on Central Park...might have to head to Melbourne to see them in their natural habitats...hmmm.
Always on my must see and spend list is Material Obsession. Love them, love them, love them! And Kathy, Kate and Liesl are such beautiful ladies...I feel so welcome and love catching up with what they are up to. It is like falling into a shimmering pool of colour, inspiration and warmth...good for the soul, and my head is left bursting with ideas.
I attended a talk with Kathy and Reece Scannell ( his shot cottons are truly beautiful) about colour...amazing stuff...now I need to reorganise my stash into tones. The most amazing thing about this talk, besides all the colour info, was looking at myself, my colour choices, my likes and dislikes and realising what this says about me. So much cheaper than therapy is this fabric addiction of ours!
More tomorrow- purchases, bloggy friends, Quilt Show and who else we caught up with! Surprise meetings, recognition and inspirational friends. A few camera issues to be sorted, so I can show you lots more!
A fun look at my corner of this crafty world we all share!
