The A to Z of things you may or may not know about me ....

E ........ ECLECTIC ... That's my reading style, anything and everything 
F ........ FAMILY .... I come from a family of 5 children - 3 girls and two boys

G ....... GENERATIONS .... I have had 3 sets of 5 generations alive in my life time.  Once when my twin sister and I were born, once when my niece was born, and once when my great nephew was born.  I am grateful for the generations past, for because of them I am here, and I am grateful for the generations that will be for the importance of their input into the future of the world.
H ....... HOME ... My home is here in Adelaide at the moment, but I grew up in Victoria, so I sort of consider that my real home, I'll always be a Victorian.
I ......... INTERESTS ... I have many ... I love sewing, knitting, reading, genealogy, photography, scrapbooking, blogging, helping other people, among other things.
J .........   JOY ... I try to find Joy in as many things as possible, but most of all I find joy in serving others.
K ........   KINDNESS .... an important word to me.   I like to think that we can all make a difference in the world with Kindness.  Kindness is catching.  Kindness begins with me.  Two little sayings that have stuck with me since childhood.
L .........  LILIAN ... my grandmother's middle name ... so pretty.

Q .........  QUILTS .... I love patchwork quilts.  I've never made one, but it is my goal in the coming year to make one for my daughter.  She wants a quilt that has the main color as black and bright colors in between.
