Our big plans were to drive down to California to spend the week catching up and seeing the grandkids...
Well you know what they say about the best laid plans, right??
I saw a cartoon a few months ago that said, "If you want to make god laugh, tell him about your plans"!! So true
California is burning and our neighborhood was evacuated. Our son drove over to our house to retrieve our photos and papers before the evacuation order was entered. I couldn't expect him to take my quilts, could I?? And he filled his pick up truck to the brim with our pictures.
Another lesson out of all this? Get organized.! HAHA.
I took a few online classes recently on how to digitize your photos and get them organized... Great idea. Need to implement.
Anyway, a little sewing going on here:
I hope the evacuation orders turn out to be a precaution. Fire is so scary, I hope it stays away from your house. Glad you got the pictures but I hope the quilts will be just fine. Sewing will help pass the time and your string quilt is fun! The dark fabric works well with all the colors!ReplyDelete
It's a thrill to go to a fabric store after so many months without! Oh my goodness that is scary about your evacuation, and so fortunate that your son could be on the scene to help you out. The wildfires in CA have made the news in Japan. I really hope your beautiful state gets relief soon. I think your string blocks look terrific!ReplyDelete
Those fires in CA are so scarey--so many and so fierce!! Good that your son could check on things for you...Staying in place is a good option now.ReplyDelete
I love your string blocks--The gray really tethers all the other colors nicely..Good work Stay safe Hugs Julierose
Glad your son was able to get to your home and retrieve some of your important things. We don't think about getting 5hings like that organized until there is a pressing need. The fires are very scary. Stay safe and keep sewing.ReplyDelete
I guess getting things organized and under control is a lesson we all could learn. I've meant to do something about our photos, etc. for years--never happens. Those fires are so terrible. I hope there is some relief soon. Take care and have fun with those new additions to your stash!ReplyDelete
Oh Randy this is so scary! I hope your kids and your home will be o.k.!ReplyDelete
Fingers crossed for you and your family !!ReplyDelete
Hoping your home is safe, Randy! I thing a shopping day was warranted to counteract all of the stress you must be under. Sounds like you made some fun purchases. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear about your evacuation order. That’s so scary! Hoping it all is safe. Trip to the fabric store is good therapy! How is your mom doing? Stay safe!ReplyDelete
I hope your home will be safe!!ReplyDelete
It doesn't matter that your constant fabric is dull--it just matters that it is constant. All your other fun colors bring the blocks to life!
Glad you are able to get in some fabric therapy. It isn't a matter of what we need, but what makes us feel creative. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I can't believe how behind I am on my blog reading. what a week. Your string blocks are just great.ReplyDelete
I hope and pray your house is oka. Please let us know.
Have a great family weekend Randy!
