I am quilting with wildfires, literally. I quilt awhile and then pull up the map on the local tv station's website to see how close the fires are. So far we just have smoke approaching, and the wind is really high (35 mph) so the smoke blows a long ways from the fires. There are five I am watching. My site says all are contained. The closest is 20 miles away, but with high winds....well, ya gotta watch.
That being said, I am close to finishing the binding on a charity quilt. Our guild has a habit of giving quilts to folks whose houses have burned, and about 13 burned north/northwest of Wichita Falls Friday, when winds were 55 mph. I have a feeling this quilt may go out before our next guild meeting.
Not to worry about me here...I am just quilting and watching. If it is time to evacuate, I will gather my husband, son, cats, important stuff like medicine and insurance forms, and head out. :) Right now the fires are contained, just the smoke isn't.
I bet I am the only one quilting and watching wildfires at this very moment!
