This was the view from my back door yesterday afternoon. Looking at it, you'd think it was snow, but it's hail. I had my first experience with Tornado's yesterday, three of them, and spent the majority of the afternoon sitting inside my walk-in wardrobe with the dog and my husband. Not the way I had planned to spend my afternoon, but thankfully they passed by us and we are very fortunate not to have been harmed, unlike others close by who lost their entire homes.
I am astounded that living in a State that has a huge number of tornado's so few homes have either basements or storm cellars.
So today's plans are to work on the blocks I had hoped to do yesterday for the bushfire quilts. Janet from Wildcraft Farm is also rallying quilting ladies in the Dandenong Ranges area, and via the internet to make quilt blocks, perhaps you'd like to help.
I was reading Kim's blog yesterday and she's managed to get major quilting suppliers to supply batting, backing fabric and quality threads for Tia to use in the bushfire quilt project blocks, along with ladies willing to quilt the quilts. It just never ceases to amaze me the willingness of quilters and suppliers to step up to the plate when there's such a need. To all of you who are helping the bushfire victims in some way, a huge thank you from me. I lived through the Canberra bush fires and know how devastating a bush fire can be.
