The fun wonky log cabin blocks are now a finished flimsy!
I’ll be finishing this on my next trip to the studio to donate to the Quilts for Lytton group of people who lost everything when their town burned to the ground.
Keeping myself busy sewing is helping keep me from running outside every 5 minutes to check on the wildfire or watch the helicopters hauling water.
Two towns north west of me have been evacuated. The ferry I take to go to the studio (which I shared photos of recently) is not running. The highway is closed. Once I cross the lake the next 2 towns are on evacuation alert. To go to the studio now would be an 8 hour trip.
On Sunday our fire looked like this:
As of 5:00 this evening it looks like this:
This fire is now 3 km from my home. I have our emergency bags packed and they are now by the door. I don’t think we will be any more effected than we are right now, but if the fire comes down the ridge it won’t take long to jump the highway.
I’m already working on the blocks for next quilt top for the Quilts for Lytton. I’m hoping to have at least 2 more before the weekend is over. Then I can order a roll of batting next week when my pension comes and once this fire is under control I can go to the studio to get them finished and delivered.
Thank you for reading my post/update. 😄 Carol
