On a personal note, it was 5 years ago today that Daz was actually in Gallipoli. We meet in August 2000, were living together by December that year. In April 2001 he went away for a 7 week trip around Europe and the UK and Turkey, my only condition was that he had to be home for my birthday in late May, and he was! He went to Gallipoli with Matt, his youngest brother. He wore Grandad’s war medals over for the day, said later although he was deeply honoured to wear them and touched that Nan leant them to him, he was so scared he was going to loose them! Grandad served during WW2 in Papua New Guinea and Nan was in the Air Force based in Darwin.
And on the sewing front.... plodding along with the stippling on the blue crazy patch quilt. The tension is just perfect now, not too sure what it was but it looks good! Hopefully this time next week it will be all finished! Which leads me to my next project. I was hit the other day with an urge to sew a bag! Haven't sewed any bags except Grace's kindy bag earlier this year so not oo sure where the urge even came from! But this is what I am thinking of making. Am going to be strong though and not start it till this blue crazy patch quilt is finshed!
