I didn't know that 17 September is Australian Citizenship Day, did you?
This was in a letter I received around a month ago. (I love the nice little quilty touch they included in the graphics just for me LOL)
I passed the citizenship test back in May. Next step after that is to wait for a letter of invitation to attend a ceremony and taking the Pledge of Allegiance. The ceremony is tonight at 7pm.
I don't know how to knit, so I asked my friend Maria if she would knit a scarf in red, white, and blue for me to wear to the ceremony tonight. She went to great lengths to find the colours especially for me because all of her usual places to shop didn't have what she needed. It is so pretty, thank you Maria! Pop over to Maria's blog to read this post about what another lady made with one of these scarves...it is very clever!!
