Whenever there is agitation to change Australian National Anthem, the line most criticised is "Our home is girt by sea". The old fashioned word "girt" really bothers some people. So here is Gert, by the sea - a very Australian thing to do!
Some of you may recognise Gert as one of the Bathing Beauties in the pattern by Lessa and Deb. She is used here with permission. If anyone is interested in the pattern it can be purchased through Brenda Wood of 2 Sew Textiles, www.2SewTextiles.com
