I have been watching the news over the last two days, as the Queensland floods unfold into the largest natural flood disaster Australia has ever seen. Some towns have been flooded more then once and some have been cut off for days and weeks in some cases. So far it has been reported that 12 people have lost their lives and fears are held for the safety of many many more.
So what to do? When in doubt... sew! Check out this blog by Gum tree designers
http://www.gumtree-designers.com/2011/01/we-need-your-help.html and start
1.stitching (scissor keepers, pin cushion and needle books)
2. collecting up those extra fat quarters, needles, scissors and threads we all have, and
3.donating money for the flood relief appeal and the cost of posting your sewing goodies
I hope your family and friends are safe and dry tonight, happy quilting Sue.
