As i sit & write some of Ipswich has gone under flood. We were told that the flood peak at 11 am today would be at 22 metres but the news just said it will be less than that as the rain has eased but not by a lot. I actually woke to blue skies this morning. The shops in the CBD in Ipswich have flooded already. We are also being told this is going to be worse then both the 1974 flood & one way back in the 1800’s.
Just watching the news & where my son & i drove through the CBD of Ipswich just yesterday morning is a sea of water. We made a dash over to Bargain Box for some fabrics & things. That shop will be under water now. So saddening to watch this in my State of Queensland. Fortunately i’m high & dry but so many others have had to be evacuated not mention the loss of life & there are those still missing from the inland Tsunami that swept through Toowoomba on the range & down into the Lockyer Valley.
As my blog title said it is Flower day. I missed posting last week so have those photo’s to show as well.
These are the 4 by 1” ones from last week. I decided to finish off the 1” ones i’d prepared as i didn’t realise i’d reached 100 when i prepared a pile 2 weeks ago.
1/2” ones &
The 3 by 1” ones i sewed last night. These last 3 will make a total of 114 if i counted correctly.
I forgot to take photo’s of a few more things i’d bought over recent weeks. Though i’m still waiting on a pattern to arrive. 1 thing i did promise myself before Christmas was to buy no more patterns from January one as i’ve far to many. To buy on it will really have to excite me or it may be something i think would make a great present for a friend. Well the pattern i’m waiting for i broke my promise to myself as i bought it New Years Day. :)
This gorgeous snowman pincushion i ordered before Christmas arrived a while back. Thanks to slow mail over Christmas. :( I bought this from the lovely Cori. The cute little pins came with the hat.
Cath was only supposed to be dropping some skull pins off to me but when she came she brought some goodies with her. Couldn’t resist buying them. :)
Beautiful and dyed felt. It is so soft to feel.
And the gorgeous Cottage Garden Threads. All hand dyed. The felt is also by the ladies who do the Cottage Garden thread.
Have a great day.
