this is my Nan


This is dedicated to my Nana, who passed away last Friday aged 96...My Nana taught me how to sew and how to knit. Although I never really progressed to zips or knitting anything other than scarves. She was a seamstress and originally worked at Myer in the city. When visiting we would always be treated to a slice or cake she had baked. A few days ago when I was going through old slides, you can imagine my joy at finding this one. The kitchen was never this colour when I was growing up. How wonderful it is and I would be more than happy with my kitchen looking like this today.

So sorry to hear about your nan. Hope she was in good spirits when you saw her last. 96 is a bloody good innings. And on a happier note, love that kitchen.
