    We are experiencing devastating floods here. We are OK but it has been raining practically non stop for days and days and it is best to keep off the roads and inside, so I have been able to indulge in guilt-free sewing. This is what I have made in the last week, except for the teacher's bag which I made my granddaughter for Christmas. Funnily enough her 19 year old brother thought it was really cool. She has moved to a town in the country for her first teaching job so I have made the cushions for her new bedroom and the needlecase for emergencies. One of the cushions coordinates with a quilt I made for her.

    And a pretty bag just for myself

    Aww you make her feel special knowing you sent some of you with her. Your talent reflects your love. SO nice.

    Truly hope the rain doesn't do as much damage as it does good. I never knew you had MonSumes there as they do in Asia. Well, they do have them many places as in California USA this past month. I'll keep you in my prayers.

    Blessings, Ruth

    I've seen some of the video of your area & the flooding. Really looks frightening. Glad you are safe & enjoying stitching away. Your work is lovely.

    I do hope you are in a safe place. The news cast we just saw here in Adelaide was terrifying. That huge wall of water that hit Toowoomba was devestating. It is expected to arrive in Brisbane tomorrow. So make sure you are in a safe place and have an escape route planned.

    What varied and beautiful work! We've had a lot of rain down here in Somerset too but nowhere near as serious as you're experiencing down there. Take care and stay safe. Keep sewing too!
