So nice to get all the good wishes for my trip home My Mum is a lovely 97 years old. What a lady! To answer those who asked about my home town, it is Otorohanga in the King Country. One of you sound like you know where that is. Pretty awesome. Rather remote and wild country. Has a lot of history. Here is the sewing bag that I made to go with some of the French Attic heirlooms shown below. Drawing the give away on Friday so I have time to mail it.
