You all probably have seen the devestation thats going on in Queensland and a lot of people are affected by these floods. A hell of a lot of people....

Us Nutters from Among the Gum Tree 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 and Jenny is having an auction of her gorgeous quilts to raise funds.

Also Toni over at Make it Perfect is running a Flood Appeal Auction across Blogland on Monday 17th January for 1 week. All proceeds will go to help the flood victims - Read all about it here.

Please read all about the different ways you can help and pray for those affected by these floods.
We have floods on one side of the country and on the other side there are out of control fires.

Hugs to all............Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Oh Vicki, it is devastating isn't it? Just terrible! The flooding here seems to pale in comparasin to what is happening in the south of QLD. No lives were lost here, thankfully. What we need to do is send the rain from the north-east of the country to the south-west of the country.

I'm in on both Vicki....thinking of donating a jelly roll for auction and then making Jen's Honey pattern for the Nutters relief appeal....I still can't believe it...it's so surreal!
My thoughts and prayers are with all in Queensland ...nature has certainly dealt a cruel blow this time!....and with those in WA where nature wasn't to blame.
sugary hugs and blessings sweety
XX Wendy :O)

It is with heavy heart I watch the dreadful things unfold in both Qld and here in WA.
