Flood Appeals

(Centenary Highway)

Yesterday we tried to get to my husbands work to see how badly flooded it was there. They have a creek that runs along the back and it floods easily. I took a couple of photos along the way... of things I have never seen before and I hope I never see again. We also went to check on my sister-in-laws house and this is how close it came up her street.....
We are standing in front of her house.
We are definitely the lucky ones.
I have been madly stitching away a sewing caddy to send to the Gum Tree girls (go HERE to see what those wonderful girls are doing for the flood victims)
I really wanted to get it finished before I head off to Melbourne tomorrow. I am spending some time with my brother and I'm pretty sure I won't find a sewing machine anywhere in his house!!!

I was very lucky to receive for Christmas from my lovely buddy Tereasa a sewing caddy pattern. How did she know I would need it so soon?
There are so many wonderful raffles and auctions out there and every little bit helps.

I will probably be MIA for a while as I'm not sure if I will get near a computer in the next couple of weeks.
I will catch up with you all when I get back .... I will miss you and will try and sneak on to a computer to see what you're all up to if I can.
Take care and see you soon,

I like the caddy and stuff you made. You will make a woman very happy with it. I can´t even imagine how it would be if I lose all my sewing stuff.
Have a good time MIA and take care!
