Phew. We all woke in Sydney to the sound of the downpouring rain. After 10 months of planning the Kaffe Fassett lecture/slide show without more than one dribble of rain, today the skies opened and dropped buckets on our roofs and clogged the streets with cars and the sidewalks with umbrellas.
The weather didn't stop the 200 strong who came to be wowed by the master of pattern and design. From the sounds of the cheerful chatter in the Hunters Hill Town Hall after the captivating talk I think everyone had a great time.
Kaffe spotted this top bag and we all considered dashing off to make it...instead we had some lunch and a relaxing afternoon.
It was great to see so many friends at the hall today soaking up the offerings. Many autographs were signed and memorable photos taken...here's one for Bronwyn...
Then, as if the last two days of Kaffe and Brandon weren't enough, tonight we had the immense pleasure of an invitation to Kim Mclean's house to see some of her award winning quilts. Kim is amazing...check out these divine quilts that have a real reproduction flavour done in now WOW Kaffe fabrics.
What doesn't show in this photo is the detail of the fabric placement so I got a bit closer.
and then there was more to see.
We all had a close look at the perfect handwork and attention to detail. Kim reproduces quilts from days gone from her own drafted patterns. They aren't available outside her class at the moment, sorry girls.
This one had lots of movement and lovely evocative applique around the edges.
We'd like to thank Kim for allowing us into her lovely home to see these most successful and endearing quilts.
So the world is filled with all kinds of marvelous things to see, do, think, be and marvel at. Here's hoping life is color-FULL!! all the best, kathy
