Sabotage.........

I am sure this post has been sabotaged............I finally got around to taking some pics..............then the power went off for the day ( yep me and the family at home again due to the rain and NO POWER)..............then when I finally got back onto the computer the email was playing up and as i email all my posts to the blog I couldn't do the post...............

....but you know what it is like when you have no power..............
I had all these plans to do stuff and the power went off and didn't come
back on for most of the day.........yep you guessed it everything I wanted
to do required power.........it will have to go off again to fix it as it is
too wet for the electricity men to get there truck etc into the
area............ so down the creek we went.......a few tyre tubes and a boggie board (great in table drains and creeek as well as the surf)......did I get in.........like hell it wasn't "that" warm.........


But finally the goodies I received in the mail last week when things were pretty hectic...........I brought these lovely fabrics from the Provincial Patch and as one of the early newest customers I received a bonus fat quarter.............thanks heaps Kerri and Julie..........good luck with your new venture...........I can recommend these girls for good services.............they have some beautiful stock in the shop........... nice chat to Kerri............can we that again sometime.............



I got some great mail from Paradise........she sent me a belated birthday present and a PIF ...............not sure which is which as I opened them to quickly but I love it all.........this pillow is Leanne Beasley design from "Girls Day in the Country"....and you know how much I love chooks especially blue ones...............



continuing on from the chooky theme this bag has chooks printed all aver it............and a little sunglasses case inside too..........



then some fab fat quarters...............I am sooooo spoilt....................and my fav colour...........



this is what the sky has looked like most of the week............very very very unusual for my part of the world..............so I enjoy it while I can BUT could not live with it all the time.............give me the sun...........



and while I was trying to take the pics above this little bug ran across the table............so colourful and bright and hard to catch as it would not stay still.......


Now an update on the SSCS..............parcels have been received by Levin and Karol Ann (who is have a huge problem not opening her present............lol............)

  1. Hey Donna! Wow! Looks like you've had some nice rain down your way - we've had just over five and a half inches in town, with some nearby areas getting up to 8 and 9. The best part - there was some run off into our dams and we now have an additional 100 days of water supply - YAY! What a pain being without power, though. Hope it doesn't happen for too long for you. Enjoy the water and the green to come! Bear Hugs! KRIS

  3. Hi, well done with the rain, it's not often you are wet and we are dry! is it a help still?
    Great pics and lots of booty as well.
    we need to be like the olden days and have emergency handwork for when the power is out...sounds like too much organisation though!! I'm flat out having candles, matches and a charged torch!
    love Trace

  6. Isn't in frustrating when the power is out and you still try to turn the lights on. Love that little bug perhaps he was sheltering from the rising water. Still no rain down here.
