I’ve had a lump in my throat looking at all the incredibly generous donations for auctions …. and also the amazing generosity of bidders too. Bloggers really are wonderful!! Over the past few days I’ve watched huge parts of the state I love devastated by floods and an inland tsunami. Lives have been lost. Heroes have been found. Houses and possessions have been washed away. But through it all, the goodness in the people of Australia … in fact - people all over the world … has shone through like a beacon. God Bless them all!!
I went to my local patchwork store yesterday to pick up some odds and ends to pop in with the sewing caddies that we are gathering at the Among the Gumtrees blog. I was totally overwhelmed by Margaret’s reaction when I told her what we were doing. Just look at she gave me to add to the caddies!!!! I tell you I was almost in tears when she kept coming out with more and more goodies to give to quilters who had suffered losses through the floods. Thank you Margaret :o)!!!!
I finished my first caddy today and I’m pleased to bits with it …
(Oh Vicki that’s a stiTCHy project LOL). Proceeds will go to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.
Here’s another link for you if you’d like to help the flood appeal by buying a PDF pattern by by one of the Gumtree Designers …

HOPE on a flour sack and in my heart...
