There are a great group of bloggers who get together via a linky party on LeeAnna’s blog Not Afraid of Color each week to share list of things that bring them joy, inspire them or make them laugh.
My gratitude post this week especially goes to the valiant, heroic firefighters and helicopter pilots who are doing their best to get the two local wildfires under control.
As of last night we are now officially on Evacuation Alert. Bags are packed with clothes and necessary documents, sewing machine and kitted projects are by the door. Arrangements have been made for a place to stay. Everything is in order in case we have to go. 🤔
This is a map of the fire last week.
This is the most current map, showing the Evacuation Alert area as well:
On the positive side I have another quilt top finished which will be completed and donated to the Quilts for Lytton Drive.
I also have 2 more sets of blocks almost finished for a couple of more quilt tops. After all what does a quilter do when under duress? Sews and tries to make things that will help others who lost everything due to a fire that swept through a town that had 15 minutes to get out.
I love how others are calling with offers of help to store things and places to go. My Guild Board Members have all stepped up to gather and store artifacts, papers and equipment from our Guild which is at Perry’s on the above map. People working together to preserve something is always inspiring.
My newest photos of my littles are here;
