West Aussie GTG…….

It was lovely catching up with the ladies at the Craft Fair on Saturday after a busy few days in Perth.
Nice photo of us with our new friend Lisa, Tracee, my DD Sandra, Anthea, me,Tracy with the cute Miss M and our Julia having coffee before going into to the show.


there are always sew many beautiful quilts to see sew will only show you some of my favourites…

WOW! all 1 1/2” squares… Looks like 100s and 1000s.


this years challenge was “10” and I really loved some of the ideas folk use  and the quilting is amazing. Shame you cant see all the detail in photos.

033  “Hang Ten”

“Ten Birds”

“Ten Houses”

  “Ten Skittles”

No wonder it got a Blue Ribbon as it was just fabulous…..

I was the last of the big spenders only buying


some small “Dresden Plate” papers for a challenge I joined. Pretty Threads from “Cottage Garden” and some Spots or are they Dots for my Owls….. I am sure my other bloggy friends made up for the lack of my spending….
