About Me- Bird on the Border
- I am so blessed to be a wife,mum and a grandma. Our wonderful son and his lovely wife have a beautiful little girl. My little family complete. My husband and I both work full time. We enjoy travelling, going in our caravan, dining out and spending time with friends and visiting our children whenever we can. I love anything country and Shabby Chic and I love patchwork and stitching and getting together with like minded ladies who love to do the same. Just wish I had time to do more. I love catching up with friends over a cup of coffee , and the smell of biscuits cooking in the oven on a rainy day. I enjoy keeping in touch with the many friends I have met through blogging and sharing our sewing and our lives on our blogs. I love going off on stitching retreats and quilting weekends with my quilting buddy and friends. And of course I love the birds in my garden. I also write the blog for our local quilt group Macintyre Quilters which you find on the side bar.

I have always gone to Dawn Service on ANZAC Day. ( for my OS friends this is a National Day of Commemoration for our fallen soldiers. It is at 4.28 am on April 25th.
I am so proud that my son has carried on the tradition with his family. This is Ev's 3rd. For a little one just over two and a half she was quiet and respectful for the duration. So proud of her. She never went back to bed either so I am sure she will sleep all the way home on their 6 hour journey.
She had a handful of ANZAC biscuit too.
