ANZAC DAY 2016


Australian and New Zealand forces are remembered for their service and sacrifice to this wonderful country.  My family are not Australian - we are the first generation who have made this our home.... however, I do have family that served in several wars in different capacities  ...

My paternal grandfather was a Minister during WW1 and I like to think that his service included supporting and praying for ANZAC's in their service.  I never met the man as he died before I was born.  This is inside the front page of his bible, which I now have.

I ordered the Dutch Treat book.

Have you ever used bali fabrics to applique with?

That is such a treasure to have. I found out my grandmother was a nurse during the war, something I never knew.
She is the one who quilted and rug hooking, so I guess I got my gifts from her.
