I was born in Mooroopna and lived and went to school in Shepparton. I worked for the ANZ bank for a number of years and lived in Cranbourne for 30 years before moving to Rainbow three years ago. I enjoyed sewing at school and I have sewn ever since in different ways. I have also enjoyed doing other crafts such as card making. I use stamps whilst making cards and I like seeing words in stitchery designs. The Stamp at the bottom of the bat is one I used to use a lot and thought the combination of it with words would work well. I took the bat to Melbourne and asked my daughter Ali to do the writing for me. To me, the bat means I’d pick YOU even if you have a disability as I look at the person not the disability and we all need friends.
