Preparing for @aqm_australian_quilt_market and Gary tells me tearfully that he and Glen are in the middle of a trial separation, "I think he is seeing other gulls" says Gary. Glen will not be attending Quilt Market says Gary "It would just be too awkward". #sosad #theyweremadeforeachother #literally

Are you coming to @aqm_australian_quilt_market ??? Want to borrow some toy samples for your store. Please come and talk to me. I literally have boxes of toys taking over my house. Message me if you want to get organised beforehand. #ricractoys #somanytoys

2: wash the rag rug. When I first made this rug people got their knickers in a complete twist about its washability. Maybe it's just me... but do people wash rugs regularly? Anyway I washed it today with the hose and some detergent and a scrubbing brush. It is drying in the sun.

This is the 'collection' print from my #bugcityfabric range. I love the order and science of bug collecting - no so much the deadness bit. #ellabluefabrics #australianquiltmarket

While I love all the prints in my new #bugcityfabric range, I admit to having a soft spot for these stripes. You can see these guys and the rest of the collection on booth 1148 at #quiltmarket2017 Meanwhile.... I have stripey things brewing. #ellabluefabrics with huge photo thanks to @redpepperquilts

Eating, breathing and sleeping #bugcityfabric , my newest fabric range for @ellabluefabrics right now. The to-do list is long and a spot of un-sewing means the temper is short (just so you know). Stay tuned!

This my Pin it, Patch it & leave it bag, bought from @vanessakind of #mycreativegarage . It is the bomb. If you see me teaching 'round the traps this is my new go-to bag. It is super roomy and sturdy and it has a great short strap as well. And what's even better is there is a whole other side to fill !! Thanks Vanessa, it is flawless.

You know it's true folks. New pin in the store. Tag a tea drinking friend and guess which colour is the most popular- you could each win a Tea Helps pin. #ricracpins #pingame #teapin #pincollector

I might have neglected to introduce you to Albie, first cousin to Peggy who appeared in the Comic Relief Magazine last year. Albie is a creative card pattern, available at Quilty shops, wholesales through @creative_abundance and as PDF from my Etsy shop. Now back to quilt Market sewing.
