This morning I headed off on a road trip. It was a different type of road trip as I was on a fact finding mission. My destination was this place........
There wouldn't be many of my blog followers that don't know about my 'Dear Prudence' quilt and how the original quilt was made by Prudence Jeffery in 1857. I am in the process of compiling a pattern book for the quilt......but it will be more than just a pattern for a quilt. I really want to make it a book that people will enjoy reading......a book that also has information about Prudence and her family. It hasn't been an easy task. The more answers I find the more questions are asked! So many discrepancies with dates and places. So I went to the Old Ballaarat Cemetery today to find the grave of 2 of her children who has passed away in infancy in 1861.
Others left a legacy of heart break of many young lives cut so very short.
I did come away with an idea what might go on Russell's headstone when the day arrives
