Before long.....we just had another meeting, working on things.

patti,  I need some ideas from you!  I have had a pile of Winnie the Pooh fabrics from church here at home.  Finally today I was able to get two of the pieces into a size for kids!  And backing for one.

now, I am left with this!  3  framed blocks, 2 side strips.  They are CUTE!  But needs something to make it usable Size.  I found a blue that is close so the top frame on one block could be fixed and have the blue plaid print that could make a fourth square?  Or, that long strip that could be used somewhere....,

the blue checked print I have 2 pieces about a yard each,,,,but one has a hunk out of it.  My mind just isn’t seeing an instant pattern.

oh, I have this piece too.... it is about 2 yards long, but only about 1/2 the width of fabric.


  Got ideas?  Or can I kit it up for you at retreat?  Would you want some other color to go with?

i need your brainstorming!

The winds have died down so they are getting a handle on the fire situation...the voluntary evacuation notices were lifted last night...the containment number is at 25% which is pretty good...

Sis has her Go Bags packed...says they will stay packed until fire season is over.

We did have one crisis... Daddy said he is NOT going anywhere...yikes...the elder of my two local nephews said he would deal with Daddy if it came down to evacuation...he and his brother would probably have to pick  Daddy up, kicking and screaming...but there is no way they would leave their Mom to stay in a fire zone...and she and Mama would not leave if Daddy were still there...

Not sure where they would have gone if they DID have to evacuate...all the shelters are full and they were recommending folks stay in their cars because of the COVID situation...not a pretty picture in any case. My younger nephew was in  one of the voluntary evacuation zones...with two sick kids and cat dying of cancer...not sure that many people would fit in the elder nephew's condo!!!

Sis says 'THANK YOU' to everyone who sent up prayers....

Speaking of retreat, should we be getting a notice of when we can send our entries in??

Totally agreed!

Thanks :) I'm fine now, but it was almost a month ago. The only thing that lingers is fatigue. I'm generally up later, etc. I'll take it, though! I had what I would consider mild case compared to some of my patients.

Now I'm working at the school for the deaf, and really enjoying getting to practice my ASL skills :)

You can kit it up for me, let me look, i think i have some pooh fabric, I'll look, right now we have no power, so not much is getting done, we at least have a generator, so run it in the morning to watch news and get hubby his coffee and toast-lol- and run the heater and fridge for a while. No internet, i add on my phone, kerosene heater in between. Ice is gone, above freezing now, but no idea when we will get power again. 37% out in grady county (us), 300,000 around OKC.  A mess!  Should have had my treadle working!!
