Good Morning and welcome to my blog. My name is Tracy and I live in Perth, Western Australia (WA). I am a happily married Mum of 3 (2 teens and a toddler) with a passion for most things crafty.

After many years of wanting to try quilting I finally took the plunge about 4 years ago and signed up for my first workshop. I have been hooked ever since. Like many people I have more UFOs than finished pieces and can't resist adding to my stash. I joined the local guild, the Western Australian Quilters Association (WAQA), in 2012, did a very informative 12 month stint as their Workshop Convenor, and have enjoyed participating in their Community Quilts program ever since.

My other love is the Pilbara, a region in the Northwest of WA. We lived there for many years but moved to Perth in 2008 for our older kids to attend high school. The occasional, treasured visit always soothes my soul and reconnects me to nature. If you haven't been I recommend you visit one day (winter is the best time of year).

I am very keen to learn how to make landscape quilts and turn some of my Pilbara and Kimberley photos into wall quilts. Time is my main limiting factor, especially in relation to attending workshops. I'm hoping to do some online workshops this year, perhaps with someone like Caroline Sharkey.
