That's what this great day is all about and why it means so much to Australians. When we were kids, nobody would want to be labelled with convict ancestry - nowadays we are so proud of our history! Thanks goodness it all did happen or I wouldn't be here - I come from good convict stock (lol)!
It's beer and prawns here today - no beer for the girls - we are good old Aussie wine drinkers! Of course it has to be at Mum's Place (i.e. Lurline's Place) - so no sewing today - may get a little done tonight!
Oh, how old and loved do they get! This is my puppies quilt and cushion - quite faded from lots of washing and yes, drying in the sun! Made from gentle repro fabrics and I think this is still my very favourite quilt - may make a similar one again soon!
