My Nana's Fan and Elizabeth's Baby Dress

Carrying on from my Korean stories I dug out the fan that my Dad brought home from Korea in the early fifties for his mother. When we left England in 1967 to live in Australia my Nana gave the fan to me and I have taken great care of it ever since.....

After having two baby boys I was more than ready for a daughter in my life and optimistically knit this dress and matching cardigan in 1982....what joy when Elizabeth was born!

And last but certainly not least here is my Mum last week at a function in Korea, she's wearing the traditional gown and looking very fetching indeed. (Who is that humming "Three Little Maids"?)

We're expecting some stormy weather in the next few days, it's still warm though.
