Today was a scary day to live in the Blue Mountains. Today was a scary day for anyone living in Australia really with the Catastrophic fire danger rating.
Last time this happened I remember packing a small bag of my treasures and we evacuated to a family members house that was out of danger. Among those treasures I had packed some newly acquired fabric. I wish I could remember what that fabric I treasured so dearly was.
Today we stayed. All day I felt unsettled waiting for the unknown. Checking fires near me every minute.
I decided to see to keep my mind off the possibility of the fire. I sewed and sewed and sewed. I followed Stitched in  Color penny patch along.
I had thought about this quilt for years and today was the day to make it. Unfortunately my mind being in other places I made some errors while cutting and trimming so seams don’t match up but I don’t care enough to fix it. It has served its purpose... the distraction I needed.

I am very greatful that the fires weren’t as bad…
