    Have any of you been watching the news that showed the results of the torrential rains we had yesterday? Most people report that they are just going to dry out, clean up, and move back in.

    Seriously, We were watching that storm. Wish some of that had come up here. These storms are quirky. It's either feast or famin. Hope you weren't affected.

    No, we were not flooded. The heaviest rains were to the east of us. They got 11 inches of rain in a very short time. We received either 2 or 2 1/2 inches of rain. It was the right amount at the right time for us, but there was flooding to the south, east and north of us. From here, that storm traveled north east, flooding Texarkana, TX and leaving a swath of devastation across Arkansas. In Arkansas, another campground with both trailers and cabins was swept away. Thirty people known dead. Since they have no way of knowing how many people were staying there, they are still searching for both survivors and bodies.

    eightylady,
    Deb Watkins is presently hosting a Sunbonnet Sue exchange. I am not sure were in the exchange they are but you might contact her and see if she is planning to do another one soon.
    I was going to join this last one but had to many irons going already.
    You can either find info on the board under exchanges or go to the user list (look in the small print at the top of this page) and p.m. Deb Watkins. She is a great lady and very helpful.

    My husband is from Augusta, KY. This is a small town right on the Ohio River between Cincinnati, Ohio and Maysville, KY. Much of the waterfront property has been bought up by well-to-do people from Cincinnati for summer homes.

    Hello from the Turtle Mountains of North Dakota..........We presently live on my DH family farm, 16 miles north of Dunseith, ND., about 4 miles as the crow flies south west of the International Peace Gardens (We can see the Peace Towers from our diningroom windows - what a view). 25 miles north east of Bottineau, ND and 110 miles north east of Minot, North Dakota. When you look at a ND map, go to the center at the Canadian border then go a tad to the right to where to meet the IPG location. That's us. Also if you look at a "Verizon Cell Map", we are the little white dot in ND, that has NO CELL SERVICE. Which can be a pain in our pouty.

    I too think it is very interesting to see where in the world other quilters live. It would be so much fun to gather everyone together for one big quilt party. I hope at some time I will be able to have some pen pals from other countries. Anyone interested?

    Waving hello to everyone from Monroe NH, right on the Connecticut River. Our town is the on the edge of the bump at top of NH map just before NH gets narrow. Gotta drive at least an hour to visit any quilt shops. Favorite ones I visit regularly are Stitch at the Old Mill in Whitefield, NH, and of course Keepsake in Center Harbor. Sometimes I head south and stop and visit Country Heart Quilters in Plymouth NH, or if I'm really lucky I get to go further and visit Quilted Threads in Henniker.

    One of the things that drew me to this board was the wide circle of "friends" available from all over the world.

    I'm with you, Jackie R. Why put "in hiding"? I don't understand that.

    I've always been interested in North Dakota history. My maternal grandmother's family farmed near Bottineau in the late 1800's. My grandmother graduated from Bottineau high school in 1918 - the family moved to Minneapolis MN soon after due to poor crops, grasshoppers, if I remember right. I've always wanted to visit your beautiful state :)
