Another highlight of that weekend was the time I spent with the inspiring Kathy Doughty. I have long admired the inimitable style of Kathy, her amazing use of colour and the enthusiasm she infects us all with. Kathy's work can be bold and innovative, she always makes me think and then look at what is created with fresh and often inquiring eyes.
I was fortunate to buy a copy of Kathy's new book, Adding Layers...and I love it. The projects are joyful and playful, with Kathy's signature use of colour, and, always a bit of surprise! It is about using your stash, interpreting traditional designs in a new way, being confident with your own choices. The photos are amazing too, showcasing glimpses of Sydney, by the talented John Doughty, who even managed to take a lovely pic of me...thanks John!
Well, all those lovely pics created a bit of a desire to recreate one of Kathy's projects...Dreamcatcher.
And today I arrived home to find this box of happiness waiting for me...it certainly made me smile!
I am looking forward to starting this!!!
Thank you Kathy, love your work!
