Your wonky houses are really cute.

The video clips were incredible. Listening to "We are Australian" was very very moving.

Wonderful - I love you! Yes, we are Australian and we should be very proud - we are all trying to help in our own little ways at the moment!
Hugs - Lurline♥

I was tingling, listening to that.
It's touching us all here in Canada.
I love that blue print in the first photo. So happy!

Lovely! I am making the Happy Houses also, but for the American gals swap. I adore the pattern, they are so fun to make!
Yours are very spring-y!!

Thanks Peg for the video. I cried while listening... I love your togetherness, this incredible proud feeling of being Australian that comes through over and over when I hear this song anywhere. I am proud and love being Hungarian, but always thought that if I could not be Hungarian I would love to be Australian. I also lived in London for a while, but never felt that I would love to be English but I sure would choose being Australian in my next life :-)

It is odd. My comments disappear from your blog. I left a comment yesterday and it is gone. I left one just a minute ago and that is also gone.
Just wanted to thank you for the link to the video clips. I was really touched. It was a beautiful ceremony.
