Well, isn’t Australia having some crazy times just lately?!
If it isn’t fires, which are apparently still burning in Victoria. It is flooding rains…Personally we haven’t been really affected by the rain and wind other than not being able to get into town because of water over roads, until this morning when we lost power. Fortunately we have a good generator set up which provides us with enough power to run the household almost as normal!
We have our own little waterfall when we get heavy rain! At one stage our driveway was completely covered in water, this photo was taken after the rain had eased off a lot. We went from having empty tanks to over-flowing in a couple of days!
Although I am very grateful for the rain because it has saved us from having to buy water, I really feel for all the people who are getting flooded again so soon after the 2011 floods. I hope all my bloggy friends are keeping dry.
This is the finished quilt I made for the Tassie Quilt Appeal which is organised by Jess. With the constant rain for a couple of days I was able to get a lot done!
I love this Rocket Launch Club print from the Children at Play by Sarah Jane range…And the orange chevrons go perfectly! I quilted it on my SIL’s short arm quilting machine in a freehand stipple pattern.
I thought I would just put a simple label on this quilt so I sewed a twill tape label onto one corner.
A great quilt for a boy I think!
In the background you might be able to see that the bank has collapsed onto the driveway….this happens every time we get heavy rain. Now we just need to wait for the driveway to dry up a bit so hubby can get the bobcat out and clean up the mess!
