Anzac Day is the day we honour our Armed Forces who served during World War I and II. I am proud to be the grand daughter of two men who served their country. My paternal grandfather was one of the original ANZACs who fought at Gallipoli in WWI, and in France and Belgium in WWII. My maternal Grandfather served in New Guinea in WWII (My Mum is the cute little girl in the photo above). Grandad recently turned 90, and despite his failing health is still going to attend ANZAC services today. We love you Grandad!!
Anzac Day 2007
I am very proud of my 14 year old son who was selected to attend the Smart Moves Invention Convention in Canberra this week. He was one of thirty high school students from around the country who received an all expenses paid trip to Canberra where he learnt skills to commercialise his invention . He has an innovation patent on his design for Party Mate – a device that clips a beverage (wine, beer can, glass) onto a plate to provide “an extra hand” at parties. I can’t show you a picture of his design just yet but this is him hard at work building the prototype! He was a finalist in the WA Inventor of the Year Schools Competition in 2008 for his design .

As no post would be complete without a crafty update, I will leave you with a peak at a quilt I have been working on this week!
Here is some lovely Andalucia fabric that will be put to good use soon.
