Australia Day Activities

January 26 the day we celebrate our identity as Australians no matter where we are or where we were born.

A day of high temperatures 42C here, barbecues with family and friends as summer ends. School starts next Monday. A day at the beach if you live on the coast.

The day for me is about my first 'little Aussie" Heather born in Sydney she is a "true blue" Australian as is my 2nd daughter and grandchildren.

I made a Birthday Present for Heather. A set of special tea towels. I just couldn't resist the fabric and she has collected the dolls since childhood.Thinking of all Australians I worked on quilts for others today by preparing more qayg blocks.

This batch of blocks went to Jan.

4 boyish blocks off to Kaite.

Enjoy being Australian where ever you are today Terry

happy Aussie day to you dear Terry, the boyish blocks look fab and will settle in very well, thankyou so much. i might make them the 4 corners.
I've been cutting all day, cutting backs and inners and now strips. Col's been snipping corners off inners and sorting scraps from the last lot of blocks.
"only" 35 here but now it feels like 45 as the sun heads towards the west. toodles, kaite
