Inner West Women's Shed's CQ project update ...

The ladies of Inner West Women's Shed were sceptical when I suggested we start a project called ...
"Doing My Block".
 
A title I borrowed from years spent in the world of Crazy Quilting.
 
A number of the women had no sewing skills, absolutely none ...
some volunteered to embellish two blocks ...
here's some of the completed blocks ...
by Chris ...
by Ingrid ...
#2 by Ingrid ...
by Ali ...
by Me ...
#1 by Robyn
  #2 by Robyn ... 
 
There's still six blocks in progress ...
that will culminate in a glorious wall hanging ...
to be raffled as a fund raiser.
 
The women are amazed & very chuffed with themselves. ☺

My ANZAC Heroes ... Age shall not weary them ...


 
Today as on every ANZAC Day ...
I miss and think about My Heroes ...
 
My Grandfather in France 1916 ...
love this pic with a little dog lifting it's leg .
 
   My Dad was in Darwin 1942 when it was devastated - he was too. 
 
 My Bro was in Vietnam in the 60s then Malaysia ...
he never recovered -

the experiences took him away from us in 2001. 

 

 Age shall not weary them ...
Nor the years condemn ...
At the going down of the sun and in the morning ...
We will remember them ...
Lest We Forget.
