It's the middle of Summer here in my part of the world - I know it's hard to believe for my friends who are making snow angels and drinking hot chocolate right about now, anyway - it's hotter than hot
The kind of heat that make you run under the sprinkler to keep cool.
Sadly it's also the kind of heat that helps to fuel bushfires that destroy property and livelihoods, the picture below of the recent NSW fire was taken by my brother whilst flying from Melbourne to Goldcoast just a few days ago.
One image you may have seen on the ABC is of this family sheltering under a jetty near their home in Dunalley, south east Tasmania while smoke and fire filled the air around them. Terrifying.
I wanted to share with you a few events that are being held to raise money for those affected by the Tasmanian fires and Red Cross....because maybe we can make a difference to someone in need.
The Quilted Crow girls Leonie and Deirdre have put their heads together to create a special day called 'A Gathering of Goodness' - you can read all the details here - if you are in Tasmania call the girls and book in, the day is all about coming together as one..... you will have a wonderful time & the girls are so much fun!
The Handmade Library have arranged an auction to raise money for those effected by the recent fires in Tasmania among some amazing products is the full collection 32 x fat quarters of Woodland fabric donated by Cinderberry Stitches - no reserve, postage paid within Australia.
Auction begins tomorrow and ends on Monday - Please share with your friends and let's try and raise as many $$ as we can for those who need it most
