Busy hands

Thanks to everyone for their lovely words last night, I spoke to mum first thing this morning and she is ok which is a huge relief. Whatever damage she finds when she heads out really is of no consequence. I hope that there is no loss of life anywhere. The eye passed right over her at Mission Beach with a horrifying one hour of eerie calm. They have water leaking from the ceiling so what she will find of the top story at day light is hopefully not too heartbreaking. Fingers crossed for everyone up there. *Just spoke to her and damage is pretty minimal considering with the roof and car port intact. Hope it all looks as hopeful for all the FNQers*

Busy hands made a start on a quilt for Caleb’s new room. Moore creative peeps at Kirst’s.

Oh my God, you must have been so worried. Your Mum was right in the path. So glad to hear she's okay.

I am so glad to hear that she is okay. Oh my - she was actually in mission beach. I am so glad that I didn't know that. I was up for most of the night sewing E. a backpack and watching/listening to the cyclone coverage on tele and the radio.
She must be rather shaken by that experience. Terrifying.
