We've been very fortunate to avoid our property being flooded again. We live on the Broken River in Victoria and the river rises and falls very quickly normally, and it fills when we get rainfall in the hills to the east of us. This time the floods have come from the west of our State and 43 towns have been flooded but not us this time. If we do have a flood we have our whole farm flooded but we haven't had the water through our home and we are very grateful for that.
We have a creek which runs across our farm and it rose overnight but it has started to go down again now and the sun has been out which has helped to dry out our paddocks.
I've been busy making more QAYG blocks and I also received a lovely parcel today from Lorraine G (NSW). Lorraine sent 4 beautiful QAYG blocks, some FQs and some money to help pay for postage. They will all be put to good use and now that Victoria has also had severe flooding in some areas I know that I'll have an even bigger challenge to get more quilts made and donated. We have 5 of our States with flood damage and the need for help and support will be great. Some of these people were already homeless and have lost what few possessions they did have. Hopefully donations of some warm winter hats and scarves and some blankets or quilts will help to keep them warm.
Back to the machine again and please pass on the blog address so we can get more help with the QAYG block donations to make more quilts.
Cheers, Jan Mac
