Well what an interesting couple of days we have had recently. Lots of lightning thunder and we even managed to get some rain. Our first lot of rain for the year. Unlike other places which received massive amounts we received 14.5mls up until 9.00am on Tuesday and we got another 6.5mls up until 9.00am on Wednesday. The gardens are looking refreshed and all that dust on the roof has been washed away. Here is a little sneak peak of our "Stitching Challenge" Anita are doing each month. This month we got to make something with Fiona's rabbit stitchery. I made it into something for Lucy and she saw it in her room when she got home from school yesterday. She thought it was cool,which is great.
Yesterday I made this shirt out of some material I had in my cupboard. I made a tab front shirt out of the same material a few years back. I had just finished sewing and over locking it and was ready to press it when I realised I had sewn one of the sleeves inside out. It took me just as long to unpick the over locking and sewing as it did to make the shirt. Luckily I was able to match up the stripes quite easily.
Look what came into flower in the garden. I planted 4 of Peter's sunflower seeds recently in a raised veggie bed. Three of them decided to grow. This is the shortest one and it is in full flower today. The other two will most probably open there heads in the next day or so.
Ian passed on some photo's of the storm Perth had on Monday,this is driving through the Northbridge Tunnel. The speed limit in the tunnel is 80km per hour. I can't imagine anyone was doing that on Monday. Though they were probably safer in the tunnel as there are thousands of cars damaged by hail. David has our Ute and this has been damaged by hail. There is gong to be up to a two year wait because of the massive amount of work needed to be done by repairers and panel beaters. Luckily David was not driving in the bad weather he was at Uni that day and had to travel home by train. The train stopped about ten times so the journey was a bit longer though he was dry.
This is inside the library of the University of West Australia which received a massive amount of damage including having heritage lead light windows smashed to pieces by hail. Perth has never seen a storm like it.
I tried to make a very small doll today. After painting sewing stuffing etc I decided doll making was not for me. Especially one so small. Oh well onto something else now.
