Off to Sea it goes

This week I will be sending off another Aussie Hero quilt.

Jan-Maree had been asked for quilts to be made and sent to personnel serving on one of the Navy ships which is on a support mission in the Middle East.  I had started a quilt a couple of months ago, and since  the request came I have been working towards finishing it.  In between all the other family dramas and events I have found time to be rather precious, but eventually it came together a bit at a time.

The Australian Flag square was cut from a scarf I had found in a gift shop.

Tomorrow I need to finish off the laundry bag which I will send with it, as well as buy some extra treats to include in the parcel.  I am hoping the recipient will enjoy using it.

The countdown clock tells me 24 days.  And I am counting!!!
