Since my last blogging I didn't have the time for a lot of stitching. I started and finished a biscornu for my mother. She fell in love with the Cherry Blossums Biscornu from The Sweetheart Tree, and I made that for her. It was finished just before they left.
My parents are now back in Europe and hopefully my father's health will become better. It's still a worry.
Stitchingwise I'm right now busy with 2 Quaker designs. Because one of these will be for an exchange (can't make up my mind yet which one...lol) I can't show you any pictures.
On a more sad note, the fires I told about in my last post were worse then I had thought. 209 people died in the fires, and there are still some people missing. 1800+ people lost their houses. From our town and nearby villages we mourn the loss of 21 people.
They got the man who is suspected to have lit the fires in our area, and he got whisked away direction Melbourne after people started gathering in front of the police station. I don't think it would be very healthy for him to be here. There are a lot of people who lost their loved ones, their homes and belongings, their animals. There are so many people traumatized by what they saw and heard. And the pictures of the surviving wildlife are heartbreaking also. There are not much survivors there though. The ones who did survived are wounded and in need. Koala bears who are instantly tame - needing the help of humans, drinking water out of a bottle. It makes me so sad to even think about them.
