It was a big weekend. The Australian Quilt Market was on in Melbourne.Creative Abundance stand. RicRac and Mellie&Me side by side, and surrounded by all the other talented CA crew.
This is part of the Riley Blake stand, which was singing with fresh colour.
Lisa, Pauline and Jodie (over what was supposed to be a quick lunch) and still feel the bonds that were made in those early Stitches and Craft Show days.
I also popped into Markit@FedSquare on my way through to the AQM on Sunday.
From what I saw, the quality of the work was extraordinarily high and I hope that all the stallholders had a fab day. It looked stunning.
So many ideas swam about in this little ol' head of mine this past weekend. Life's big questions danced beside frippery, colour and design, while I relished the ability to ride a bicycle in glorious Melbourne sunshine and eat Japanese food for 3 of the weekend's meals.
There was hope and opportunity, exasperation and desperation, unstoppable giggles and cathartic tears, newborn-baby-cuddling and an education in boutique-beer drinking. There were surprises and uncertainty and there was the comfort of time spent with old and very dear friends. There was a sense of being bouyed up with love and support, and there was hair that did something different every three minutes (must get a haircut or new styling product).
This weekend was one big jumbled mash up. Life, in concentrated form. Ain't it grand...?
And I'm listening to KT Tunstall.
