A little time out.

Hi to my blog friends,
I am just letting you know I haven't given up blogging I have just been really sick with Ross River Fever and it's taking me a long time to get over it. I have nothing to show you as I am not up to sewing but I will eventually get there. I am also well behind with reading your blogs as well. Thinking of you all and hope to be back on deck soon.

An ANZAC Day (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) like never before in Australia.  On this day we thank our war veterans for their bravery and giving their lives for this country.  Far different from the street parades and dawn service.  People commemorated this day by lining up at their front gate and listening to the service via the radio.  Light up the dawn was very successful, so many families made an effort with flags, poppies, candles and rosemary. Some played the last post. It was touching to see.
We had a little ceremony in our front garden.

Lest We Forget
...... at the going down of the sun and in the morning,we will remember them. Lest we Forget 

My son did some searching and found these records of our grandfathers war service. Mine were  Donpon and Lewington and hubby's  was Kerr. Very proud of them and luckily they all came home.

Zen Pouch

I thought I should make something from my birthday box before I go back to work and things get busy.  This cute Zen Pouch by Millie Moo Designs.

Where There is a Will There is a Way

There is a first time for everything, virtual stitching. On the first week in April a bunch of ladies were supposed to meet for a stitching retreat organised by Chookyblue.
But as we all know we are in lock down due to this COVID 19 virus . So the very smart Chookyblue organised an online stitching day where we all did the same project. Anni Downs " Hatched and Patched" sent a package to all those involved. We were sworn to secrecy and we all opened it at the same time at our virtual sewing day. It was such fun chatting almost face to face with everybody.

The Pattern

As the day went on !

All finished Easter Sunday - what else was there to do?
