This is my Dad's house in country Victoria

This was taken 2 days after the water came through about a fortnight ago.

They had no warning. 
Lucky for them the water didn't come completely inside and they are all safe and well.

The debris up against the bridge is meant to be the farmer up the road's new chook shed.

That's my Aunty's house under that circle. 
They had warning and could empty out their house. House is dry, property is not.

While Victoria is not as tragic or news worthy as Queensland, this is their tragedy. It's real for them.

sunday stash #1

It seems that I am having trouble getting back into the swing of blogging. My first real blogging rut in 1 1/2 years! So, whats a blogger to do??

Plan. And routine. Dirty words in my house ;)

 Because not blogging feels weird. Like I'm missing something. Or someone.

Missing family :)

So Sunday stash it is! And maybe taking pictures of all my lovely fabric will encourage me to actually use it and stop stashing it!!

My first Sunday stash is my latest addition

Purchased from Hawthorne Threads

Soon to be baby girl quilts, if the quilting mojo ever returns xox

'HAPPY *belated* NEW YEAR!!'

And Merry Christmas too lol!

Hope you all have had a wonderful festive season. We had a fantastic top end Christmas :)
Just quietly, I was very happy to see the end of 2010. Has been one of our hardest years. Fire and all. Funny though.....even though we really did struggle as a family....there was a few things that were totally awesome in 2010. 3 words really. Sew It Together.

Friendships that started on line were cemented at Sew It. Even involved visitors! First, Abbe and then this mob....

(one camera shy dearfii missing!)

DearFii and co have just left after 10 days crazy wonderful days!!!

Sewing, swimming, eating, touring plus some nasty sunburn and a few crocs! Loads of laughs. And wonderful memories. More photos to come. But for now. SLEEP! lol! xox
