Last night I joined in with our lovely hostess Wendy for FNSI.
I had lots of plans for my sewing but Mother Nature had other ideas. Thursday night i got a call from my Mum to say she had to prepare to be evacuated because an out of control bushfire along the border ranges was heading towards her little town in Northern NSW. The feelings of frustration & worry cannot be described. I cannot get there to help her as the roads are all cut of for traffic heading south from where i live. So i spent most of Thursday night in a very upset state.
The alarm to evacuate wasn't given but the crisis is far from over. Talking to her yesterday the fire was still racing for the town but by late yesterday evening the winds had turned & the fire was being forced back onto itself. That crisis averted for now but the fire is still burning & the winds can still change at anytime & send the fire racing back towards the town. According to the NSW fire page over 5000 hectares have burnt along the Border Ranges just north of Mum.
Yesterday was so hot here too that even if i felt up to sewing i was just to hot. But i did do a little stitching last night on Joseph on the Christmas hanging i've been stitching,
