I love a sunburnt country
A land of sweeping plains
Of ragged mountain ranges
Of droughts and flooding rains
I love her far horizons
I love her jewel sea
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me

I am so proud to be Australian.

Happy Australia Day

Happy Australia Day! Can imagine that you are so proud of your country. It is unique!
I spot a beauty of a clamshell quilt in your banner. Did you already finish it? I should pull my clamshells out of the basket and add some rows again.
