The best part about them - one charm pack and a bit of exta fabric and and they are on their way to completion.
The charm pack was a special thank you to all Retromummy's helpers with quilts for Queensland.
It's been sitting just waiting for the perfect project!

ANZAC DAY 

Today commemorates a special day in Australian history and has a marked impact on the psyche of the nation.
At Gallipoli in 1915, soldiers from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on the beach in Turkey as part of the Allied war effort. It was a disastrous campaign with huge loss of life, on both sides of the conflict. However, Australian ideals of mateship and integrity grew out of the legend of the ANZACS . Now ANZAC day is a day for all veterans of any conflict to be recognised for their bravery and commitment to our freedom.
This is not a celebration of war…I think this sums up best...
The Ode

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
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...

  3. SIT sounds like it will be fun. Gorgeous fabrics you have been sorting and playing with. Anzac Day Has a double meaning for our family as it was also my Dad's Birthday.
