While Paddy is out getting last minute cyclone supplies (there are a couple brewing off the coast), I've made myself useless by drying flower buds from Eulalie's birth flowers... and decorating her nursery with this gorgeous wall hanging my friend Miriam made for our new little girl. She has used antique kimino silk found on a trip to tasmania and the printed fabric was the same fabric Miriam used for our homemade marmalade wedding favours. A very special keepsake from a very special friend.
Back to the cyclones - the more concerning storm is expected to cross the coast on Thursday. Quite scary for us considering we live in an old Queenslander which is basically built out of timber louvers and glass casement windows. Fingers crossed the weather will decide to behave itself, though we've seen no mercy from Mother Nature over the past few weeks so we are preparing ourselves for the worst.
