I've really struggled this week to write any blog posts at all.... with all the devastation that has been taking place in Queensland and now other parts of the country, anything that has been going on in my little world just seems so insignificant. It's been heartbreaking to read and watch all the stories and I've found myself sitting bewildered in front of the television instead of the sewing maching a lot these last couple of weeks. Fortunately, my family and their homes in Dalby, QLD have been spared even though it was pretty close at one stage with water running under my Sisters home, they have stayed safe, thank goodness! I'm hoping to get a chance to contribute to the below flood appeal's that I've come across in blogland.
If you'd like to help, Retro Mummy is calling for 12 1/2" quilt blocks to make into quilts (there is a great video on her blog with instructions for a Wonky Log cabin block) and Gum Tree Designers are collecting sewing kits to be sent off to quilting groups in the affected areas (the list of inclusions can be found on their blog).
Hope you're all safe wherever you are and I promise to share some quilting in my next post!
Until next time.....
