These floods are unbelievable. Nothing like we have ever seen before.

80% of Queensland is in flood or has been.

The flooding is now spreading to NSW.

All who are in the flood areas please take care and don't take risks.


Update to let you know

Most of you would be aware I live in South East Queensland where the flooding is an absolute disaster.
To the lovely people that have emailed me with their concerns we are OK.
The unrelenting rain dropped 34inches on our town in two days. We were cut off in our town for 3 days but when the tide fell we could get out but had to be back before it rose again. Our local river is governed by the tides.
A lot of towns in the north, west, Brisbane, Ipswich and the Lockey Valley are in a total mess. A lot of the homes are under water with only the roofs showing. Something like 20,000 plus.
Major flooding of the main roads in the state. The main highway in the state is cut in a number of places.

Thank you for your concerns.

Teaching and a surprise

For the past two years I have taught a group of ladies in GinGin . This year just before Christmas they sent me this wonderful card that they made to thank me. They also included a voucher for Brian's at Kawana. Yes I did have fun choosing fabric to use later in the year.

The card - they all made a litte photo of their quilt an then attatched it to the lovely card that Ruth had made. I believe it is her flowering tree on the front.

I was so touched by this.

Our little Angel is turning 4 on Tuesday and I could not resist making here more clothes. She loves clothes as most 4 year old so.

I have just put these in the mail along with something for her brother and cousin. I also got her another coloured hair piece.
