My beloved Queensland, or otherwise known to true blue Queenslanders as God's Country is copping an absolute drenching. I feel helpless so far away in Tasmania (second only to God's Country).
My family and friends stretch far and wide across the state and thankfully none are right in the heart of the flooding but extremely close or cut off by it.
I remember the 1974 flood and paddling around in the water aged five and I can't believe it's going to exceed that. Latest predictions are that 6500 homes will be inundated in Brisbane...Yikes! I'm following the news closely and pray that no further lives are lost.
Stay safe my fellow Queenslanders!

I started this project back in September 2009, it was a mystery quilt marathon held by Helen and Molly to raise funds for her World Youth Challenge. Well Molly has been to Namibia and has been back now for months and it was time I completed the top.
I had stopped working on this quilt because I wasn't happy with one of the fabrics I'd used so I had to unpick it and put in the green, the rest of the fabrics are from Blessings by Moda.
Now I have two flimsies waiting to be quilted, the other is Angels Story.
My other quilts in various stages of completeness are Gardners Journal and Quilt Aid 2009 then I have many various little stitcheries completed. Not too mention kits waiting to be started. Not sure which project I'll tackle next but I'm determined to have some more finishes before I return to work.
