If you read QuiltyGals blog you will already know about one of our fellow quilters losing her house to a mindless act of vandalism. Said quilters brush fence was set alight in the early hours of Thursday morning. The outcome of this act is that she has lost her house and the best part of all her belongings, all she was left with was the nightie she was wearing when she awoke. However, her life was saved by her little furry angel - Winston, a beautiful cat whom she had only had for about one year. He woke her and alerted her to the fire happening outside. Sadly, he didn't make it out and the fireman found his little body near the front door.
I would of thought that the bush fires that have destroyed so many lives and homes in Victoria in the last few weeks, would have made even the worst pyromaniac think twice....but apparently not!!! As QuiltyGal said, 10 mins alone.........hmmmmm
But life most go on, and upward and said friend is now looking to the future and planning what has to be done. Rebuilding her collection of quilts to start with!!! At least she is thinking right :)
Little Winston will always be remembered and will always be with her.
