Hubby and I visited Tamworth (country New South Wales) for their annual country music festival. Both DD's were up there also so it was FuN spending time with them too. We did the usual tourist "thing" by visiting the very l-a-r-g-e guitar...
buskers... some were very talented too... but just "people" watching is so much fun as well. There are lots of shows to go to and also the rodeo to watch. We made some new friends from New Zealand, enjoyed the company of family... what better way to spend a few days.
FuN place to be. It lasts 10 days and is held at the end of January each year. We've been several times and will definitely go again. You don't even have to be country music fans to enjoy the atmosphere... it has lots to occupy your time.
I visited Helen's blog some time ago where she showed a wonderful child's quilt she had made. It had a twist block that I had never seen before. I liked what I saw so I sent away for a pattern. One day a week or so ago I decided to try this twist and so contacted HELEN again for any tips. She (as always) was very gracious and gave me a few. She also passed on a link to another site with a GrEaT tip... (saving left over triangles) that I used... so thanks Helen.
I've finished the flimsy and will complete the quilt over the next week or so. I really think it's a wonderful quilt for a child's play rug. You can attach a rattle or soft toy to the "twist" for them to play with.
I'm keeping this one here at home, ready for any "news" to come my way.
I'll also make another one in PiNk... for future little girls ... xxx
(NO I'm not going to be a grandmother any time soon... I'm just being prepared...haha).

Enjoy the rest of YoUr weekEnd.
