The devastation of bushfires

It was a very sad weekend in Victoria, when bushfires destroyed vegetation, homes, and most sadly, took lives of those trying to flee, or those staying to fight the fires. The death count so far is 108, and is expected to rise, as the police search every property for bodies.

Nise, from has a great idea to show those poor people who have survived, that others care about their pain and loss. I will make some ornaments, and am thinking about stitching something with 'love and hope' in it. I may even chart something, but I'll have a look online and in my stash to see if I have something suitable. I have this vague idea that I've seen something in a JCS Ornament edition that might be suitable.

If you are interested too, go to Nise's blog, or see the post on 123 Stitch.

It's such a sad time and I don't feel like doing much. Perhaps I'll look through those magazines...

Sorry about the brushfires...tell us more about your country. It's hard to imagine 111 degrees F. when it's so cold here!!
