Happy Australia Day and FNSI


Wishing all my Aussie Friends a Happy Australia Day as we celebrate our wonderful nation. Despite its extremes I would not like to live anywhere else.

Last night's FNSI resulted in 2 of the chair bags being made, and half the binding sewn down on the quilt - I was somewhat distracted by the tennis, so progress was slower.

The boys took home their quilts on Thursday night.

There was something very interesting on tv and they were not going to look at the camera.  But they also were not letting go of their quilts.   They headed home to put them on their beds.
