So, that thing where I had a great long list of stuff to do? Yep, none of it is even close to being done.
Life and work and the quilt show and more work and work and ugh...
Backing for USA Hurray is on the way!
With cute cat for size comparison.
The Sydney Craft And Quilt Fair happened. I went twice - once on Wednesday and again on Saturday with a US friend who was visiting at the time.
I bought a lot of fabric - dressmaking fabric, mostly: some black-shot-green dupion that I've been hunting for years, and a lovely green-and-purple silk chiffon. Both were cheap as chips!
And some glass beads and bag handles and Vilene/interfacing and 6m of Liberty lawn...
...the Liberty lawn will hopefully turn up in time for me to make a couple of dresses out of it - and then possibly scraps? Which I'll probably sell because I have too many scraps already.
Speaking of the Sydney Quilt Show, while I couldn't get my quilts completed for that due to a torn calf muscle, I did have a small hand in the Sydney Modern Quilt Group's 2015 group quilt:
That pink row is done by me! Including the Mendocino Mermaids!
And the arrival of a bundle of Far Far Away reminded me of a Heather Ross fabric print I'm looking for: the original Munki-Munki print gnomes in any colourway - not the Spoonflower, please. I've heard that the Spoonflower prints are not very lasting at all!
If you have gnomes, please drop me a mail: seldear at yahoo dot com. I will happily swap 1:1 (or more) for original Mendocino Mermaid prints...
Oh, and while I was at the Quilt and Craft Fair, my, um, credit card slipped and now the Plain Jane Passacaglia has competition!
But I'm steadily working away on the rosettes... Just not as steadily as I'd like!
Finally, let me leave you with a laugh (well some of you, since this picture will make no sense to anyone but an Aussie, or someone who spent their young adult years in Australia):
How's your week (well, fortnight, it's been that long for me)? Gotten anything done? I'm linking up to Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday (as I always do).
