a blog post

okay this could be a blog post or a long winded essay - so in a nutshell -- things are busy - but i have no concept of why - maybe it is the stage in my life and you blink and then its gone... there is no reason to it... and trying to work it out is painstakingly physcotic.

This past weekend i travelled down to the northern rivers to work at the Scrap N Craft with T stall that was at the Alstonville craft show... what a great time.. we were so busy... and the other stalls had some fantastic things on display. While down there i popped in to visit Sarah and her little babe and ended up staying the night(too much alcohol could have been a factor to that) - tan gave me my early morn call to get myself going and then i headed out to the show on saturday. i got to meet lots of fantastic peeps - Chelles mum( sorry forgot your name - doh is me) She is the lovely owner from The Stamp Shak - and she was very gracious and posed for a pic . Also tans mum and niece stayed all day to help out at the stand - what a work horse her mum is - fantastic inspiration.

By saturday afternoon my feet were killing me - and i ventured apon a fave shop and person who i had done a quilting class with when the children were little, Jane McDonald from bebeBold - she has some amazing fabrics as well as some fabulous patterns. I ended up buying a few patterns and some fabrics and then headed home.

Saturday night i popped in to visit fam who are down from toowoomba way and then headed home to a nice chilled bottle of white and some chat with my family... exhaustion had set in.... sunday morn all at home and the day was a wipeout for me - although i did cut out a bag pattern and make it up - looks fabbo - love it - i want to make a few more but i will just have to order a little bit more fabric for the lining from jane online...

so that was this weekend - prior to that -
*old matey went on his camp - had a blast.
*i received some more fantastic scraplets from julie at A2z which i will work on over the next couple of days - have a layout on my desk ready to be stuck down.
*finished off two Design Team kits for Tanyah - love the look of these two kits - still have to do the OTP kit to compliment this range of Autumn Leaves papers... so lush.
*had a photoshoot for a friend with her newborn - love the pics.. and so does the friend
*finished one pelmet for the dining room - still have one to go .

old matey on his way to camp -- do you think he is a little excited... wonder how his teachers faired after the trip?

an inspiration quote card i made for ATZ scraplets.

Tonight i am playing catch up with my blogging and surfing - and i have an extra special guest in the house -- lumpy - i have one of my beautiful nephews staying with us - he is sound asleep and such a character when he is awake... so can't wait for the morning at all - hence i will have to go to bed soon -- might have to leave ya with some photos

oh almost forgot - my darling husband and i went away for our 15 year wedding anniversary - we stayed at elements at coolum - very nice indeedy - plus i tried thai food for the first time - but the meal was more like a chinese meal with crunchy noodles.

night to you all --- and to all a good night

ciao tracey
