The Guest Blogger(s) - Vol. 10 - Jane from Australia

Welcome to another edition of the Guest Blogger(s)!!  Today, I'm pleased to say that Jane from Australia is with us to share her April 2021 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge entry.

Jane wrote the following:

Here is my entry for the Table Scraps challenge for April. I know you have Veterans Day and Memorial Day, in Oz we have ANZAC Day (April) and Remembrance Day (November).

The poem, Just once a year was written by my younger brother, sadly now deceased.

The cross stitch was completed some years ago and has been maturing in a closet. The Ode is said at Military events and every evening in the RSL (Returned Service League) Clubs which are open to all.

The ANZAC Salute shows a couple of badges from WW2.

The family list is the generations that we have known, parents, siblings, children, and grandchildren.  (Photo Currently Unavailable!)

What a special table runner...

Thank you for sharing your ANZAC table runner with us, Jane!  I am SEW pleased to be able to share your work here on my blog.  I will happily do the same for others who aren't able to directly join the link party.

Share the quilty love for Jane's project in the comments below.  I know that you enjoyed seeing her table runner as much as I did!  Thank you, again, Jane.

Link Party Reminder...

The April TABLE SCRAPS Link Party will be open from 12:01 AM on Friday, April 24th - Sunday, April 26th at 11:59 PM (EDT).  Looking forward to seeing YOU and your project there (completed or in the works)!!  If you are running late, double check the Link Party clock, as last time it remained open for an extra amount of time.

Until next time...
Run(ner) off those empty tables!!!


  1. That is a special table runner, indeed, Jane!! I love the poppies! At least, I think they are poppies. And the aged partstgat make it special to your family! Thank you for sharing with us here in the USA.

  2. What a wonderful family heirloom! I love that you included your brother's poem. This special table runner will be treasured by many generations. ~Jeanne

  3. What a unique and fitting tribute.

  4. A perfect memorial patriotic runner! thanks!

  5. What a great runner you made! I remember Anzac cookies I made for my troop when we were learning about Australia a few years ago.

  6. This is so special and a very moving tribute to the family as well as its veterans. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Your table top is so inspiring. What a beautiful remembrance.
    I will make my Anzac day cookies (biscuits), on Sunday.
    Have a wonderful Holiday weekend.

  8. A beautiful way to remember those who served for Freedom. I worry that the generation after us "baby boomers" who had fathers and grandfathers who fought will forget WW2,WW1, Vietnam,& Korea. They now remember the wars in in the Middle East. What you made is an excellent reminder for generations to come.
