Birthdays and retail therapy.

Almost Easter here, so much going on! The Australian Football league season has started, sitting enjoying that with a few friends after Church tonight, go Brisbane!. I have to be the narrator for the Church passion play tomorrow so have run throught that...and my brother has written a movie and is now producing it...very low budget, all the actors are camped at mum and Dad's old farmhouse for Easter location shots...so I had to drive 100 kms yesterday to fill the fridge and freezer as the catering isn't available Good Friday...and it is very low budget!

Went to Melbourne for a long weekend this past weekend. I visited my oldest friend who turned 40, changed my mind on the hexagons and got this finished by midnight the night before we left.Posted by Picasa
It's from the fig and plum range, a bit over a metre square.
She seemed very happy with it. After a night with her my girl and I headed off for the rest of her birthday treat, we went to a theatre performance of CATS. We both thought it was great, stayed in the city...listening to the sounds of the Melbourne formula one grand prix and shopped the next day before coming home. A great girls weekend.
Hancocks had free post last week. With the dollar so high the exchange rate is great...between that and free post i couldn't help doing a little more retail therapy. I got a few things on sale, but invested in the new frolic range as well.
I love the colours, which are nicer than this flash shot.
I am hoping to sew tomorrow, figure that's not work on Good Friday...pure fun! Would be nice to get 2 minutes to drop around my net friends as well!
Look after yourself, And Happy Easter, love Tracey

It sounds like things are really busy for you.

Glad you were able to escape for a girls weekend of fun.

Your quilt is lovely and the fabrics are great too.

Go Brisbane! I went to the Carlton game on Thursday night, and of course the best team won.
