there is something wrong with me......

I seriously cannot go anywhere and just get there without getting lost at least twice!!! I go to Jeff's Shed (Melbourne Exhibition Centre) at least three times a year and you would think I could get there unscathed......... NOPE! I did at least 3 circuits of the city and finally came to the underground car park and in sheer frustration and relief I turned in and parked there!! I got there about 10 to 1 I think and after a quick go around and a look at the quilts I left there at 2.15ish and was charged $24!!!! what a rip off!!! that is just about as bad as the airport parking (don't get me started on that rort!)
anyway I bought a few goodies and really resisted the gorgeous fabric which was
OH SO GORGEOUS....... I am so proud of myself!!  I need to finish the projects I have started and then I will allow myself to buy.......

This quilt was Best In Show and I haven't done it justice with the photo (taken on my iphone) cant believe I went somewhere without my camera......
This is absolutely stunning and took my breath away! It won a heap of awards and rightly so! The work in it was amazing.....

This log cabin was brilliant.  I am scared of log cabin..... nah I don't really have the patience and the current quilt I am working on requires LC for my border but noooooo I have  modified and just having two large borders. 
You cannot believe how SMALL this is! I was suitably impressed!

 A close up and just to let you know the red square in the middle is smaller than a 5c piece!

This quilt was equally stunning and so very unusual in that it wasn't a conventional quilt shape!  I just loved it.  Again my photography doesn't do it justice but the dress just keeps on going and the work involved would have taken simply ages to complete.

and another one that caught my eye! My next quilt...(after I finish all my UFO's) will be something with circles. I know that doesn't look like circles but if you look closely it has a rounded shape.

I thoroughly enjoyed looking and dreaming...
then I had to go home and yes...you guessed it GOT LOST! I was doing so well and then in the wrong lane and ended up doing the city circuit and going home along the Westgate!!!!  what a loser!!!

thanks for visiting! x
