    Judith1005,
    Thank you again for the update from Melissa. I'm glad that they are all well and do agree that the material things someday can be replaced but the lives of family and friends is most treasurable. My continued prayers for Krystyna and all her family.

    Wanted to let my Secret Angel know that I got my package today. I don't know who you are but thank you so very much! I really like everything that you sent and the dogs love their toys.
    I will try to post a pic later.

    Got a package today, also. Mine was from Letsquilt and she included some lucious PURPLE fabrics and PURPLE buttons. Also included was a ledger book, a Debbie Mumm pattern book, a cross stitch ornament pattern, a ruler, a yo-yo maker and some of my favorite candy. The picture doesn't do my PURPLE fabrics justice, but trust me - they are gorgeous!!

    OMG, Krystyna was my SP a few months ago and what an awesome, awesome person. I felt so blessed to have been on the receiving end on such a wonderful SP partner. Now, it may be necessary for all of us to be a "Best Quilting Pal" for her when she gets things organized again and recovers from her loss. I am definitely in to send her a "Best Quilting Pal" package. We luv u Krystyna and you and your family are in our prayers.

    Hi All,
    I am collecting quilts for Krystyna to distribute to her community. I live about 30 miles from Long Beach. My first adult home was there, 3 blocks from the beach. My family is safe in NYC but the losses for others is great. I have a lovely quilt from Boom 6 I can spare. I can put together some tops I made of the Mystery Ride. If you can join this collection, pm please. I think 2 groups are also making Krystyna personal quilts. Quilters rock! Stay safe, Dotty

    Dotty,

    Thank goodness you and yours are safe. My DD/SIL/DGKS in NJ and DS in DE are all safe, but DD is without power. To date nothing has been done in her neighborhood and there is no power, water, food, etc. Gratefully, they have moved in with her in-laws in NJ who have a generator. She is working hard as an RN at a local hospital and says that the ER is constantly full, as are the operating rooms. Still, my kids' houses were spared damage and flooding. My heart goes out to Krystyna. There is a note as to where to send donations (checks) to her, but I'm not sure if we should trust the mail service yet, and can she even cash checks anyway. My boss's husband suffered smoke inhalation on LI when his house caught fire and ended up in the hospital. Talk about pitiful - his wallet was stolen and it HAD to have been by one of the first responders. He was to have left for CA (moving here) last Wed. Obviously that has been postponed - house is uninhabitable for the time being. This is so heartbreaking - I know lots of people in NJ and Long Island, having lived in both places. Cannot get past the choked up feeling for all of them.

    I saw somewhere on line that one house had power and put out a power strip with a sign welcoming everyone to charge up their phones...Now that thinking and probably really appreciated.

    I am having a really bad weekend, Dr appt Friday (Rhematogist) added more med for fibro Which makes me sleepy and another side effect is that it makes me clumsy. So last night I fell down! Not serious but fell into doorknob and cut my elbow. Having bake sale tomorrow so had to make stuff for that. Came home to finish list and start giving out names and my spreadsheet got erased by ME!!! Tried to restore to another time but that doesn't do anything with documents. So had to start again. So this explains why no one has their names yet. Sorry, sorry. sorry!

    Lori, please dont worry the names will come out when they come out. Hope you take the time to relax, eat one of those cakes perhaps have a glass of wine, if you were in England I would say watch Downton Abbey, get a good night's sleep and start again tomorrow. Hugs Eileen

    Lori please don't worry about getting out names ... things are getting busy for all of us and a delay here is nothing . Take care of yourself and feel better before you even start. We aren't going anywhere.

    SP package!

    No one went out to check the mail today so I ventured to the mailbox and I got an sp package from Starshine! Thank you so much! Especially the buckeyes! And the fabric with the buckeyes is awesome! The gloves I will definitely use once we have our "colder" weather in Dec. or Jan. It doesn't stay cold for long but we do feel it in the mornings on our way to work! The kit kats are not in the pics since I put them in the fridge so I can take them to work tomorrow morning. Thank you again for the nice package and cute card too!

    QuiltNut - nice package and the buckeyes are really neat. I have had one for many years - I use it as "thought therapy" - I hold it and rub it and let my mind wander. SOmetimes my mind wanders without the nut, though!
    Lori, please take care of yourself and we may pester you, but we really aren't going any place and will wait for our November names.

    Brenda21 - I sent to Krystyna via PayPal. Worked like a charm and so easy. Now I want to send a cheerful greeting card, maybe with a Starbucks giftcard inside. Coffee or tea or Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate might bring a wee smile to her face for a moment. Yes, I DO love that hot chocolate!!!

    Sharon, I sent via paypal, as well, that system is almost too easy. At least when it comes to ebay. LOL I hadn['t thought of the starbucks card, too. Good for you, I think that is a great idea. In these times, I'm sure she is concentrating on the needs of her familiy, and comfort foods can be just as important!!

    I didn't think of Paypal - sent a card with cash inside. Fretted over it, but noticed a posting from Melissa just recently that mentioned having received cards for her from -**- and my name was among them, so will assume it got there with the cash still inside. Future sendings might very well be through Paypal. How does she get the cash to her - and is there a charge for it (like Western Union)?
