Cushions for Theodore!

afternoon all!

i  have great exciting!!

on the weekend
a lovely lady from the town of theodore in central queensland...

a few hundred kms from gladstone...
{where my husband works}
had been contacted by an acquaintance from my town.

she emailed me
i emailed her
then she rang me...
and we organised for 15 cushions
to be sent to some flood affected cotton growers!
...and one four year old girl,
who lost all her toys in the flood...

one of the flood affected properties near theodore, queensland.

so this morning
i spent some lovely hours
choosing cushions to match the tastes of the women...
writing little notes
and ironing, folding and packing cushion covers.

{the little girl is getting the pink one with pooh and piglet on it
that the spangler made from 'the quick unpick'}

the lovely lady i met on the phone
is going to get the inserts from spotlight
before they are given to the others.
she really liked my 'little rainforest' cushions...
so they're for her.

she didn't have any electricity for 32 days!
can you imagine it?
no washing machine, no fans in the heat, no fridge!
in central queensland heat and flood.

this is the town of theodore during the floods...

i posted the covers this afternoon...
including a few i just got this morning!
that was perfect timing from australia post and my friend gwen...
i'll show you gwen's cushions tomorrow.

hope you're having as much fun as i am...or more!

  1. Oh, I'm so glad to hear this, Carol. How exciting! You must be thrilled. Glad to hear my cushions arrived safely, too:)

  2. Carol, that's great news! I really can't imagine 32 days without any electricity - it doesn't bear thinking about.

  3. How fantastic that you have found a home for some of those beautiful cushions...great job with the whole project.

  4. That's such fantastic news! You are doing such a wonderful job with your 'call for cushions'... We take so (too) many things for granted these days!
