    A Huge Thank You to the Wonderful Quilt Board Members

    On October 29th we lost our home and everything in it to Hurricane Sandy. While that was not the best thing that has ever happened to me in this lifetime, it did prove one thing I already knew: quilters have the biggest hearts in the world. The outpouring of love and support to me, my family and so many others who were affected by this monster storm is beyond anything I could imagine and I will never, ever be able to say thank you enough.
    Love and Lots of Hugs to Each and Every One of You!

    Hi Krysyna,
    I have been thinking about you every day. I know you have been through something that most of us cannot fathom. You are very much loved and it is heart-warming to see your post today.

    So good to hear from you. We are all so happy that despite losing your home and all of your belongings, we have not lost you.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I have been praying daily for you and your family. We all have missed you terribly around here. It just isn't the same without you

    I am sorry to hear you lost your home and all in it. May God keep you safe. Glad to see you back on the board. I have a daughter who lives on Long Island and they only lost power for a day. I thank God for that also.

    So good to see you posting again. I don't think you have any idea how much you are missed!!! Hearing what happened to you and some other friends in the NY/NJ area has really made me think about what I would do if that happened to me...I have to say I really don't know what I would do. I think of you every day and miss your funny comments on the SP swap. Take care and hopefully all will be behind you soon.

    I am deeply sorry for your loss and marvel at the strength you have shown through such a devastating time in your life. I really admire your courage. Where are you living now? How are you being supported? Were there any job losses in your family? Is there more we/I can do to help you? How do you pick up pieces, if there are any, and start over again? It is completely beyond my comprehension. I'm looking at my large stash and think I could share and yet that's not even important when a home is gone with everything in it. I feel very helpless in trying to think of someway to help you. Please don't be shy in what your needs are...we are just a click away.
    SEW MUCH FUN!
