Wednesday 12th January 2011

I guess I thought I would never see the likes of the floods of 1974 again but here we are witnessing some amazing and in some cases very tragic weather events. Thankfully my sister and nephew who were in danger have evacuated to saftety. We are in no danger as we live a long way from the Brisbane River and CBD.
My heart goes out to all those who have lost loved ones and have lost their homes. It is so surreal as the sun is shining and the sky is blue. My Mum can't get home as her town is cut off with flood waters. Hard to believe 2 years ago we were in severe drought. Mother Nature has some sense of humour.


  1. Hope all stay safe its just crazy all this rain, floods and even fires. Its very wet in NSW as well but much dryer than QLD. Hugs to all.

  2. Thanks Rebecca, we are all safe as we live along way from the Brisbane river. We had some issues with my sister but she is now safe thank goodness.Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement to start. It's still a bit nerve wracking but hopefully I will improve as I go along. I just hope everyone bears with me and doesn't get to bored with the newbie.
    Blessings Michelle

  3. Your doing a great job Michelle I dont think I was this organised when I started. Congrats on the new project in Handmade 28/10 Threads of Love wall hanging. Just love it as ususal.
    Many thanks to you as well the encouragement and wonderful outlook, made my day. Just what I needed.

  4. Thanks Rebecca, I haven't received my copy yet as the mail is effected by the floods. It's been a bit crazy here with the weather and visitors. I haven't even taken down Christmas yet. Hopefully this weekend.
