Pride and tearfulness.

I know this is supposed to be a craft blog, but I'll just spend a minute telling you about my eldest daughter.
She is an amazing woman and I love her. This weekend we took the car for a bit of a drive (nearly 600 km's each way) and went to watch her doing her passing out parade in Wagga Wagga (so good they named it twice!)
Yes, I did tear up a bit...... I am a mum after all! But I really enjoyed the day, even though it was absolutely freezing, and my sense of overwhelming pride, not only for her but for  all the recruits remains with me.
I also got to give her the cushion which she liked (phew), now I've really got to finish that quilt!
Here she is with her little sister.


  1. Oh Clair, look at your beautiful girls. I got teary. You must have been so so proud. We really missed you and your wicked humour today.

  2. Beautiful girls you've got there, Clair. Glad she liked the cushion. Hope you had a fab weekend with your girls.

  3. That is definietly something to be proud of Clair. Beautiful looking girls

  4. I have been to a few passing out parades for family and friends and agree that it is something to be definitely proud of, glad she loved the cushion.

  5. What a great photo and how beautiful are your girls! Tear up mama, it's your God-given right!
