Okay, so, kitteh need no explanation. They just is cute. (If cuteness was an Olympic sport, my kittehs would win gold every time, I swear...)
Some testing of collage makers for the HTC Android while at the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild sew-in at City Extra. (Every second Thursday - next one is Thursday 25th October - if you're a Sydneysider, we'd love to see you there!)
The Eternity quilt, laid out, up close, and in piles. I did the calculations (I shouldn't have): there are 1672 pieces lying there. 1672. And now I'm skeered.
I went off down to Melbourne for the weekend by train and plane! Train to the airport, plane down to Melbourne.
In Melbourne, Saturday morning at GJs Fabrics out in Brunswick. After five years visiting Melbourne once a year, I've learned how to use the tram system in Melbourne! (The phone apps available are amazeballs. I'm just saying!)
Confession: I'm a geek. I love conventions where people get dressed up. I've even gotten dressed up for a convention myself - DragonCon 2009, I went as a Number Eight Cylon (the "Sharon" model) in a Number Six Cylon red dress. Made the dress myself - it wasn't the best and I've always intended to redo it for a future con, but never gotten around to it. I love costuming and always have, and so going to these conventions and seeing the costumes is a great kick!
No, not everyone dresses up as Star Trek and Klingons!
They dress up as Disney!
Or Lord of the Rings!
Or Pirates of the Caribbean!
And yes, some Star Wars. (Different to Star Trek. If you have to ask how, just accept that you're not a geek and we'll leave it at that.)
And Dr Who.
And back to the fabric-related Instagrams! (All the non-geeky people breathe a sigh of relief...)
While down Melbourne-way, I went to visit a friend in Ballarat, and went to a couple of quilt shops there - specifically the Eureka Patchwork shop in Ballarat (although I also visited Ballarat Patchwork, I didn't take a photo).
And that's my week in Instagrams!
