Although I've started another project already (more on that in a future post), I've had a couple of nights down time, just reading magazines and watching telly, which has been really nice.
So, what have I been up to for the last month apart from Suzanne's quilt? Here's a quick snapshot...
Mother's Day was perfect. We went boating, the whole family together for the first time in a while which was fantastic. My wonderful children surprised me with this on arrival at the boat, and some spending money for the craft fair.

The Perth Craft & Quilt Fair was fantastic - 2 days of shopping, classes and inspiration. M survived the first day really well, then spent a half hour running up and down the aisles of the WAQA Quilt West exhibition with me close on her heels. Needless to say I didn't actually see much of the display.
The second day was just me & Mum. We ran ourselves ragged with classes. I spent waaaay too much money on these wonderful purchases.

On the Saturday M & I popped back to the fair to catch up with some of our West Aussie blogging friends, and make a new one. L-R they are Lisa, Tracee, Sandra, Anthea, Maria, me with Miss M, and Julia. This pic was borrowed from Anthea's blog. The girls went on to enjoy the fair while M & I headed up the coast to visit family.

Since then we've had lots of visits with and from family which we've really enjoyed. M has loved having her younger cousins close by for a change.
This weekend we had the boat booked again. We've had 2 days of perfect weather, although a little cold in the evenings, and taken several friends out for the first time.

It's been an awesome weekend. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well.
Happy stitching. Cheers, Tracy.
