Hi everyone,
I am still o.k I am prepared my car is packed, I can't take everything so the decision of what to take and leave has been very difficult.
Of course the pets all have a carrier ready, Barry will be the most nervous, he's the black rabbit.
The community meeting tonight was very good we all know what's going on.
Thank you everyone for all your emails and messages it does help.
The offer of homes for my quilts has been very generous unfortunately I can't get them to Sydney hopefully with all the back burning tonight Blackheath will be o.k 
I do have a request girls a family I know lost their house in the fires left everything behind as had no time to pack, even lost  the family pets. They are in need of women's clothes size 18 and 22 not many donations this size so if you have anything spare bring it along to our next class.
They are staying with friends so don't need goods or anything else, a charity quilt is already on the way.
Susie and Anne are also still fine it's all just so unsettling.
We are all looking forward to getting back to normal soon.
Lve to all,


  1. Praying for you and everyone affected by these horrible fires. May they be contained soon.

  2. I have been wondering how every one in this area is doing - I read quite a few Australian blogs and have been watching the fire on the news in the states - wishing you good luck!

  3. I hope Blackheath stays OK. I can imagine how scarry it would be to live so close to the fire. You are in my toughts.

  4. Wishing you lots of strength from the Netherlands. I hope the back burning will help. I'm having evenything crossed for you and your family (but am also thinking of all people threatened by the fires)!
    Dutch hug

  5. I have been worried about you so good to hear you are ok at the moment. I'll bring some clothes with me next class. Take care,

  6. Hoping you're all safe, and that the fires are over soon. X

  7. Looking towards the Mountains from Bathurst I'm horritied at the smoke and the aerial shots of the fire front from Bell! My thoughts are with you all and the wonderful, brave Firefighters. Fingers and toes crossed the back burning is effective!!! It's been raining on and off since about 3am let's hope it's headed your way!

  8. I have been worried about you,we were out in Blayney last week.Driving home along the Bells was terrible last Saturday,so it must be much worse now...keep safe Lisa x
