The water has gone down in Skipton and the clean up has begun. Elizabeth and I went to check on our friends’ chooks while they were away and also see Julie at the art gallery to see if we could help. It was heartbreaking to see all her artworks lying on the grass in front of the gallery…. the water had been up to the ceiling and she has lost 90% of the art. I could have cried seeing it all there. I know that we can’t take it with us, but it is still hard to see things like her paintings that a lot of love and work have gone into ruined. It was great to see that she had lots of people out there helping out, and we will go down tomorrow to help for a few hours.
What I really want to do is make her a quilt…. if I get time. No news on our visas or flights yet, so you never know, I might still get a chance.
I actually did some sewing today! Yay! Not much… but something… 🙂 I borrowed an old Singer from a lovely lady down the road, and it sews very nicely. I went to take a photo, but the camera battery has gone flat!!! Ugh! And do you think I can find the charger?! Nope. I hope it didn’t get packed in the container… I thought I had kept it out. Oh well. I shall have another look for it tomorrow.
It’s late and we need to get up early tomorrow… so I shall head to bed, thankful that the rain has stopped for a while, and the nights are cooler…..
