I took a day to spend with Kathy, running around the shop and getting prepared for my workshops. Kathy's shop is amazing. She has a great eye for picking fabrics, and for display of them, and I can now see why her quilts look the way they do! She has quite the knack for putting different sorts of prints together. I love that. She's willing to try it all. Gotta love that! This was the BOM quilt, that I made the "Mary" panel for, a while back. Kathy and I had been chatting for a while, and at one point we realized without knowing, that we were simultaneously working on Mary's projects... So we really bonded over that experience...My Mary's are rooted deep in my grandmother, and have been making them and thing related to them since my days in college...if you have my book(signed copies here), you will see the reason for them in the back of the book. Happy, happy memories...
THANKS KATHY FOR SHOWING MY FAMILY HOW LOVELY SYDNEY IS!!!
All the glorious color really made my fingers itch to sew...
Please NOTICE, that YES, they do BOTH, have their tongues sticking out.... and if Beatrice got to CLOSE to Eric,
Well, her just flatly, would turn his back and scooch as far away from her as possible...Hilarious... eventually there was some ear scratching happening... All is well in the universe. hehe!
And Sunday we three, set off for Manly Beach for the day, then finished the day with a meal with Kathy and her husband and friend at Darling Harbor... an absolutely fabulous day...
OOH! Be sure to stop by TOMORROW (Friday the 29th) to say HI and wish my Happy Birthday,
so I don't feel old. ;-)
AND for some BIG SHOW and TELL!!!
