I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Lovely cooler day here today which is a relief after the events of the week.
Earlier on in the week I made a journal cover with one of the free fabrics I received recently. I decided to add a garden stitchery to the front. I will be using this next year to write down what we have planted and the produce we pick from the garden each day. I did this a few years back and was quite surprised with the amounts of home grown produce we did eat. I dressed the lady in a purple outfit because this scene just made me think of that poem "When I am old I will wear purple."
On Wednesday morning I happened to look out the kitchen window and saw that a fire in the paddock across the road had just started. A worker had been using a ride-on-mower to clear around the row of trees, which caused a spark. It spread so quickly. The fire brigade came with two trucks and the owner had a bulldozer clearing a firebreak. I have never seen grown men activate themselves so quickly. I know the farmer who owns the property next to it was not very happy about it. Of course later on in the day we turned on the news and saw the devastation caused by fires down at Margaret River. It really made me realise that if something like this happened and if it got more dangerous we would definitely leave and be safe. Because we live close to the water tanks our water pressure is a lot lower than other areas in town.
I did receive my charm pack which I won from Johanna, I have a plan for this. It will be a project on the list for next year. Thanks Johanna.
It has been a busy week with an end of year lunch for our sewing group and garden club. I am glad we have these functions in November and not December. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
