It's a little blurry. My friend Jane took it with her cell phone & didn't hold it still enough. This is some members of my quilt club working on QAYG blocks for the Heartstrings Australian fire relief project. I was hostess last week & put everybody to work. There were only four of us at the meeting but we made 24 blocks. I did another 11 the next day at home & just have to box them up & get them sent to Sue F. in MN.
Two of my grandmother's uncles emigrated to Australia from Germany & raised families there. They both settled in the Bendigo area of Victoria, right in the area where the fires were, so I guess I feel a certain connection even though I doubt if I'll ever get a chance to meet any of those distant cousins.
