I have known Kathy, both through her blog, her books and personally for quite a few years now, and she never ceases to inspire me and make me think I could take on more challenges!
Me (shocking photo of me but I'd been up and traveling since 4am!!
Well, that's my excuse anyway!),
Kathy and Liane
It was also wonderful to meet Liane from Berry Red Stitches while I was there. She too was visiting from interstate and we quickly fell into a chatting companionship as only bloggers can do!!
I am very impatiently waiting for Kathy's new book release next month, as soon as I have it in my hands I will let you know all about it! Of course I can never visit Kathy and leave her glorious shop empty handed! Ever since I spied Uzbek Patches it has spoken to me.
I now have a kit to create this quilt for myself.
Kathy packaging up my kit for traveling!!
This gorgeous fabric caught my eye too, so it came home to Melbourne with me.
The rest of the weekend was spent attending a beautiful wedding of old friends (the happy couple are in their 70's!), and catching up with lots of family. We don't get to have family gatherings very often, so thoroughly appreciate them when we do get the chance. Sunday night was spent quietly looking through past photographs of my (deceased) Grandparents. We came across some lovely little gift cards my Grandmother had painted for my Grandfather...
She was obviously very much in love.
Back home now and back to work and other things. I will be seeing the Hunger Games movie on Thursday with another Kathy, a dear friend from work. I loved the books so I'm looking forward to seeing this movie. Have you seen any great movies lately? xo
