The warm..and the wet!

Where do those weeks go?
But look, at least one completed quilt to show you, this needs to go in the mail for Quilts for Leukeumia, I love the red and white!
Can't believe it has been so long since I was around the computer! Work finished...boy, I give a lot of credit to all of you who work full time with kids...and quilts,..and husbands..and whatever else as well, it's crazy! Then we headed off for a much needed break to sunny Queensland! Helped lift everyone's spirits, it has been awfully wet here, the crops are all sodden and have been underwater now for over 5 weeks...not good! The rest of the state is having major rainfal as well, lots of flooded towns. That's the joy of this country, "of droughts and flooding rains!!" Such apt words Some years too dry, some too wet!

Here's the warm weather...of Queensland... me.Me and my boy on the beach

Me and my boy "helping" dad cook the BBq on the rooftop, unfortunately it had a distracting spa!! And i am sure I am only holding a can of softdrink and a book!

And here is what home looks like...

This should be a cropping paddock!

And this!

And this should be a road!!

Lucky the holiday was fun because the DD is not a a happy camper about his farm!

I haven't taken too many pics because it's too depressing and NOT what we want to remember! But, of course, many on Australia and Pakistan are far wetter and far worse off, Pakistan really puts a loss of income into perspective.

Hope you are all well, Tracey

Wow - it's stunning! You've got his address? Can I copy the photo, or can you send me one. I think its #28.

Don't laugh, but we desparately need rain!

thank goodness for 2 wheeler motor bikes I say............can't move off road without it..........
wettest period I remember here in winter too..........

Needled Mom said... IS wet there. I can imagine that it is not what you need for the crops. Will it be too late to replant?

Your pictures are beautiful...especially the sunny ones.

Love the quilt

I'm sorry for all the rain. Being in Wales we are used to it and we can deal with it.
Are you insured against this sort of thing or is it a complete dead loss

Love and hugs Gina xxx
