5 in 5 - MELANIE - November 2016

Melanie is my friend who lives in Australia and she loves photography.  Every month since the start of this challenge Melanie has taken part in this monthly meme and as she doesn't have her own blog I post here. I love that we have found a way for her to take part, so over to you Melanie:

"This week a four day craft and quilt fair was being held in Adelaide and I chose today 5th November to visit.  I went intending not to buy any new materials from the craft stands and I am pleased to report that I didn’t come away with anything except ideas.  I have been to a few fairs in the past and been totally amazed at the skills that quilters have.  As in the past the quilts were mind-blowing.  So many designs and ideas transferred to quilts and what amazing talent the quilter possesses. This year there was a special display in the quilt area of work created by the Japanese artisan Akiko Ike.  You can read more about the exhibition at the following link:-

I did not have my camera with me but I did have my phone so I took some photos of this amazing work and am using them in my 5 in 5 for November.  I especially loved the jackets of which there were several".

I smiled when I received Melanie's email as it bought home the time difference. Here I am, writing this blog in the early morning, on the same day that Melanie has already been to this quilt fair and posted me details. It's easy to forget that technology brings us together while time zones give distance. Thank you for sharing these photos, Melanie, and as always, for taking part! 


If this has inspired you to pick up your camera and join in please go to the original post where you will also find out how to link in.
