Those of you that have been following my blog for some time, might remember these photos of my beautiful granddaughter Melissa when in Peru.
She took off in March of 2007 for a couple of years to see the world,
Mel is such a free spirit, loves people and animals...not sure in what order!
She loves deep sea diving and worked for a couple of years in north Queensland taking people down for dives, the big turtles used to come to her and she thus earned the name of 'The Turtle Lady'.
Mel did some great dives in the waters of the Mediterranean....and visited Malta where we came from.
She started her adventure off in Melbourne to visit her mum for a week before setting off for Mexico with a girlfriend, they spent a month there and then went on to Peru.
They went to Colca Canyon and saw Condors, the largest flying bird in the world, and then up 4000 metres to do the Inca trail..
Well this beautiful free spirit of ours surprised us all by getting engaged on Christmas day to her long time boyfriend...we are so happy for them both. She had gone back to school to become a primary school teacher, just 6 months left to her graduation...and now at 28 years old, I think getting ready to settle down and maybe ( smile) start a family soon.
Not knowing what to give her as an engagement present I asked her what quilt she liked and Mel picked my repro tumbler quilt..." I really love this one Nana" she said. so I quickly with great pleasure added a label and presented it to her with love from Nana and Grandad...
I can see a wedding quilt being made very soon......♥
