A Very Newsworthy Class...

So last weekend i was up at Jennifer Bee's again with another of our silk shading classes. It was good this time as we had a mixture of new people doing the kit and some others starting projects of their own.
The state of Victoria has seen some amazing rain this winter, and last week was no exception. Where we live in Gippsland we are subject to flooding as the water makes it's way from the mountians behind us, down to the lakes and sea. Jennifer is Based just on the outskirts of Sale, which is usually beautiful farming land, but last saturday the water had broken the banks and filled the fields right up to her back yard.
The morning started off fairly interesting as there was a lot of air traffic as helicopters flew over the scene, scopping out the area. not sure what was happening we would poke our heads outside for a quick look, but then head back inside to carry on stitching. It wasn't until around 3pm that we heard this noise get louder and louder... and it suddenly sounded like someone had landed a helicopter in the yard. Turns out they had! Channel 9 News had turned up to pick up their reporter so she could get some footage for the nightly news, and had chosen the only spot big enough and dry enough to land, which happened to be the neighbours back yard!
