It's a wild and windy day here today - There are Westerly gale force winds..... Can you see the wattle tree in the distance in this photo?
You can't see a lot of it because the rest is now on the ground !
The wind has put a major crack through one of the main limbs
And as you can see the tree just couldn't take it......
Wattle trees don't have a long life and this one was huge
It shaded the whippet (Shadow's) yard in the summer but today it dismantled it. We will now have a huge clean up job next week and will have to get someone in with a chainsaw to get rid of it.
So not being able to do anything outside I have spent the afternoon in the sewing room working on some swap gifts
And working on next month's Framed Hexagon Club blocks. For all of the ladies that have signed up over on the web site www.shabbyshack.com.au - Your First Package has been posted and is on it's way to you. A group for you all to join is in the works so keep an eye on your inbox for your invitation in the next week or so.
More blocks have been drawn up for Months 3 and 4
And I'm in the final stages of the last few blocks in my new BOM to be launched in January.
