The good news is that the evacuation order was lifted on Thursday and we almost raced down to California to clean the house and see the kids but there were too many unknowns. We had to get the power company to come out to turn on the gas--had to rely on neighbors to meet them.
The house is intact, the fire is getting under control and we are still in Central Oregon, enjoying the last vestiges of summer. We will go back in a couple of weeks.
The donation quilt is finished and I found the cutest border fabric! Can't beat string quilts, although they surely don't use up very many strings!!
Aside from eating, I have been sewing a bit. I'm trying to finish the challenge that me, Wendy Reed (contantquilter) and Barb Vedder (funwithbarb) have been working on for months. I'm on the last border, although I may add an appliqué border too.
