American by birth. Australian by choice.
Tonight I became an Australian citizen. Tomorrow I apply for my Australian passport and get registered to vote. Who would have thought, in 2001 when I first set foot on Australian soil, that my life would go this direction. I couldn’t be happier. I’m happier than a bird with a french fry. Thanks Mr. W – for everything. Seriously. You make my heart sing.
And just to keep this quilt related – here is the quilt I made years back to symbolise Australia. I collected many fabrics over a couple years that reflected the colors of Australia. I recall buying some Aboriginal fabric when I was on my tour of the Outback – I think it was at a market in Alice Springs, NT. It hangs on the wall in the yoga room.
