It's calmed down now, but yesterday we had horrible weather in Sydney - classic bushfire conditions, hot with strong, dry north-westerlies and low humidity. There were fires burning on the city's outskirts - and this is only September. Bushfire season always scares me even though they are no threat to me. If we ever had bushfires here, it would mean armageddon had arrived!
So, I kept the wind and heat out of the house and started sewing. Soothes me every time. Pennie took this photo of a couple of my blocks last week at our day at the pub. I have since made half a dozen more. My spring quilt!
