our fire dept. has a fish fry fund raiser every Sept. last year it was canceled, we had a hurricane instead! not nearly as much fun. in December someone's pasure fire got out of hand ( they burn them to get rid of all the old grass so the new spring grass can grow better) anyway, it came very very close to my house which is surrounded by pine trees so from 10 pm till 4 am there were 3 VFDs and several neighbors helping us protect our place and get the fire surrounded and put out. I was terrified, we survived the hurricane with minimal damage and I just knew we were going to loose it all in a flash because of someone's neglect. They get permits to burn with the understanding that they will keep a watch on it.
Anyway, after that long drawn out story, I made this quilt for the auction this year.
