It was a hot and extremely windy day yesterday ... apparently several homes were destroyed in a bushfire and big chunks of western Sydney lost power. Walking to school this morning there were upended mailboxes and tree branches everywhere. We got off lightly - the worst we suffered was a tree branch hurled into the garden, and it didn't even hit anything important. We missed all the drama though cos we spent the day at Mum & Dad's, and the wind was not so violent up there.
Mum seems to have caught the quilting bug since I gave her my old sewing machine, and she saw my quilt. Her first attempt was a small one for little Pete,(because I'm such a mean Mummy not giving him the one I had for my birthday! LOL) I had to pry it out of his hands this morning because he would quite cheerfully have dragged it to school with him.
I would have sworn I hadn't progressed much on Purple Dragon Fae since my last update, but looking at this pic I guess I have made a little progress. That's the good thing about taking progress pics I suppose...it's a great motivator when you feel like you're getting nowhere.
