Just too hot

to do anything, even sew.  Melbourne is in the grip of a heatwave so I have been sitting quietly, reading a novel and listening to the emergency bushfire warnings - I have many friends who live in very heavily treed areas prone to bushfires and where I live is very close to bushland and grasslands so I never feel completely safe on these high fire danger days.
I thought you might enjoy the list of quilt sayings at The Stitching Cow, so here is a LINK.  If you carefully read the list you'll find a link to a lovely stitchery pattern.
Many thanks to Lena.
Keep cool
Love

  2. Hi Melody
    It is very hot and too hot to do anything much at all. I have sent you a couple of text messages on your mobile phone and with you not replying I am thinking its the wrong number you gave me when you registered for The Lets Get Stitched weekend. Can you let me know what your phone number is again...I lost that bit of paper from the Christmas Gathering :) Thanks heaps Vicki xx

  7. Stay cool and more importantly, stay safe. We moved from a high bushfire area so I well know that nervous feeling.

  11. It's been horrible, hasn't it. And it's only half way through January, so I'm thinking we haven't seen the last of it. A friend of mine lives in Research and told me she has to evacuate last week. I said WHAT?? and she explained that her house is between Kangaroo Ground and Warrandyte, and if the wind was strong enough it would have sent the KG fires into Research, hence the evacuation warning. Geeezz, that's getting too close to us for comfort...
