Since graduation on Friday, I have been thinking alot about home - Australia that is. I try to always remember where I came from, stay in touch with the happens back home and to share my heritage with my boys. Yes, I still call Australia home after almost 20 years and still have bouts of homesickness. Although, I have to admit that on the rare occasion I get to go home, I feel like a foreigner! The country has changed so much and so has my family. My Mum is no longer with us and my Dad is in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's, so it has a very different feeling for me now.
So today when I was piddling around with Picasa, I discovered this photo and it made me smile. I believe this was the third bed size quilt I ever made. It was a request from Big J and he painstakingly helped my lay out the pattern for the Union Jack. When it was finished, we were both very proud of it. I am sure it will have pride of place in his dorm room at Virginia Tech.
Thank you to all those lovely people who visit my blog and for those who leave their words of encouragement. This blogger community really is a wonderful place to be!
