I had a lovely day today….
It was an early start, cold crisp and 6 deg when we left home. The dogs took one look at the packed bags, sort of rolled their eyes and went back to bed. (She's off again)
The Qantas club is a great place to people watch, I had pancakes with lemon and have specially brewed coffee. People are coming and
going, some seemed bored with travel, but the young couple next to us excitedly were anticipating their overseas trip. Some times I make up my own stories about their circumstances. Is that legal?
I worked on my Irish illustration while Keith was behind his paper.
The flight was great, I worked a little but the lure of my new edition of Selvedge proved too strong and I spent the rest of the time devouring the information.
Cath picked me up at the appointed time and we hadn't gone too far when we had to stop at a traffic light.
I took a gasp… to the left I noticed trees and seats covered in knitting and fabric, the shop that accompanied them looked fascinating too.
Cloth what a wonderful name for a textile shop… so of course we had to stop.
We had a great visit… I'll go back and take some interesting photographs on my days off.
Next stop. Material Obsession I was in heaven.
Kathy Doughty, owner, Author and Designer is delightful.
The shop is a riot of color. Fabrics to make your heart sing and I don't say that very often… but see for yourself.
I love Kathy's designs they are fresh and fun.
We had lunch overlooking the river and bordering that was a turquoise swimming pool that shimmered as the swimmers disturbed the water. The conversation was lively and the day was just perfect. Thank-you ladies.
I've just made coffee and bread an honey, I'm putting the finishing touches to the presentation I do in class each event… but I've been up since 4.00 so I think its time to retire and get up early and finish it in the morning.
We're going to have a great time in class tomorrow.
