I looked at my pile of UFOs and found a quilt I had made--it had come back from the quilters, but I had not completed the binding. So I proceeded to do so and this is the result.
Hand appliqued hearts
I have packaged it and posted it off to Chooky. I did feel a pang parting with it, but I know that it will be appreciated by someone who has been through difficult times.
Many years ago, we lived in a house on the edge of a National Park. To prevent devastating bush fires in summer, the bush fire brigade do some back burning prior to the bushfire season. On one occassion,whilst they were doing some back burning, the winds changed direction and suddenly the fires were whizzing up the valley towards our homes. It was scary watching the bushfire brigade standing in our backyard fighting the blaze. Fortunately, all ended up well that time. Many years later ( after we had left that area years before) another fire came through the same valley and many of the neighbourhood houses were burnt. So I can imagine how more scary and devastating it could be when the fires win out.
It seems odd that I am posting about bushfires, as the weather is so unusual for this time of year-- it is actually pouring with rain at the moment and rather cool for February.
Have a peaceful weekend.
