As you are all aware here in Australia we are having terrible floods in Queensland that are tearing the hearts out of many of our fellow Australians.
I have never seen TV coverage of floods that tore through a town with such magnitude and they are likening it to an inland sunami.
I pray that the rains will stop soon and allow these people to rebuild their lives if that is possible.
I have noticed on several blogs today where there has been appeals set up in Australia by bloggers to help in a small way.
One of them is the Gumtree-designers who have an appeal running and if you go to the link you can see what they are hoping to collect. http://www.gumtree-designers.com/2011/01/we-need-your-help.html
The second one was brought to my attention by Mary-Ann in Canada who pointed me to Kaite's blog.
Kaite has a tutorial on how to make the 10 and 1/2 inch blocks.
Kaite is not the person running this appeal but she will guide you as to where to send the blocks when you have finished them.
I do know how important these appeals are to the victims of these terrible Natural disasters because when we had the horrific bushfires in the ACT back in 2003-myself and hundreds of others were involved in making quilts for the families who lost their homes-and there were 500 of them.
I hate to think of how many homes have been destroyed but the TV coverage showed houses rushing down
in this massive torrent of water.
Please help if you can.
