But I'd also decided it was time to go and pull out the tablecloth I'm working on for the "Beehive"Especially since I've had another signature hexie arrive in my mailbox! Thanks so very much Susan. It's kinda cool having the map of Queensland embroidered on it since that was where I was born and grew up. Our family have also spent several years (in several houses) living up there - so a very big thank you!!. I now have 7 lovely ladies who have taken the time to make a signature hexie for me to add to my blogging friendship tablecloth. (or see below this post). I've pulled out some of the new fabrics I bought when we were away earlier this year to use and managed to get some more hexies made up as well as getting one signature flower completed! My plan is to make up the flowers in the order in which the signature hexies arrived so that I can link back to each of those wonderful ladies. The flowers are rather big as I hadn't really expected to receive very many signature ones since its quite an effort to embroider one up and then post it out, so I feel very blessed with those I have here - so there has been lots of consideration to which fabrics bring out the best in the embroidery.

We've been having sooo much rain of late that the rivers are flooded and the paddocks are so full of water that I've had minor flooding across some of the roads on the way to and from work this past week! So it's been wonderful to have a Sunny day today - still quite cold mind you, but without the rain. Scruffy and I were able to go for a walk along the river track and check out how high the water is getting.
It won't get high enough to cause damage to any of the housing as further down in Yarrawonga they are letting water out through the weir gates. I took Dad to go and have a look at it. While we drove there today, it is actually within easy walking distance from his unit so he is planning to head back here now he knows which way to go.
