Soggy, soggy, soggy

Not much happening today as we are making a great onslaught on all the admin that has built up over the last few days. Just wanted to reply to Bird on a wire who came back on my Monday musings about the FOQ and said that she would be saddened if it were the only quilt show on the block. It's true we need variety and that is what we Embroiderers lack. There aren't many smaller shows for embroiderers. Bird says that she makes a point of entering the Sandown show and others throughout the country to support them and we need to persuade more people to do this. Must say I really enjoyed the show. I noticed that there was only one entry in the embroidery section at Sandown. Why don't we all put our embroideries in next year?

Weather - terrible pics of floods on the news last night. Do hope everyone is OK. Big sympathy hugs to anyone caught up in it. Will need an Ark if this goes on. My stepson in Sydney rang today and it was the same temperature over there in their winter. Just off to put the heating on.

Hi Maggie,

Thought you might like to know that here in the ACT area we are also having rain, lovely soaking rain. We have been in drought for a number of years and have very stringent water restrictions, the dams being down to 33% capacity . Next week we were due to have even stricter water restrictions which would have meant no watering of gardens at all but we have just been told that these will not be imposed for at least another month.

I am really enjoying your blog.

Cheers Helen
