Silk and Kimoyes

I "discovered" a place at the Brisbane Quilt show last weekend (simultaneously discovered by about 5000 others) with beautiful bolts of silk. I could not be tempted by some of the most exquisite, hand painted, 1940s and 1950s pieces - until this. Hand stitched - it should have been a criminal offence to cut it - luckily I got over myself and brought a metre home to look at, fondle, admire, enjoy and share. Really enjoyed Kimoyes silks ... felt like I had travelled somewhere special in that tiny, challenging space within the Convention Centre.
