No doubt most of you have heard of the devastating floods that have hit our beautiful Queensland. This is an incredibly difficult time for all of us and here at JoyPatch in Brisbane we are one of the few lucky ones to be high and dry. Like most of you I just want to do what I can to help. Toni at Make it Perfect is organising an online Silent Auction beginning on 17th January and finishing midnight 24th January… and I’m pleased to say that I intend to participate in this by offering a kit for my “Teatime Tabletopper” pattern to be auctioned. All of the money from these auctions (and hopefully there will be lots) will be going to the Queensland Government Flood Relief Appeal. If you like, you can just click on that link and do a direct donation, I know there are a lot of flood victims who will be very grateful ;o).
There are other things you can do too … we Nutters at the Among The Gumtrees blog are organising sewing kits to be distributed to the quilting groups in areas that were flooded, please click here to find out more – every little bit helps ;o).
Please feel free to pop both of these buttons onto your sidebars with their links :o).
My thoughts and prayers are going out to everyone affected by these dreadful floods …
