    Maybe you should create a little mini quilt for the postie! i bet that would brighten his/her day!

    Aw Krystyna, I am so glad you haven't lost your sense of humor. I am sending out good thoughts into the universe for you and your family. I am so sorry for all you lost. But, I am more glad that you and your family and pets made it out safely. And that all will continue to move forward. You are missed here on the QB.

    And, I have to second the thought, Lisa, QuiltingKrazy is doing a wonderful job taking care of all of us. So thank you goes out to both of you.

    Good thought, it is usually the same guy who delivers and I know he delivers fabric all the time to the LQS - could make him something for his delivery van.

    HobbyKat1955, Good to hear you are back home and things are hopefully getting back to somewhat "normal." Hope you had a good Thanksgiving too!

    Here is the quilt that I sent to Handi and which she has now received. I think she was a bit surprised that we don't do Thanksgiving here, and a bit relieved too that she didn't have to try and get a quilt here by then.

    I have called this quilt Lily's choice after the little girl who chose the colours for the chequerboard. I laid out a choice of twelve dark and twelve light fat quarters and asked her to choose five of each. Then she had to decide the order of the strips. She had great fun.

    Krystyna - Lovely to hear from you. Keep warm. xxx

    Wow so pretty and so many tiny blocks!

    Krystyna, good to hear from you. I am sure you miss sewing very much but am glad to hear you keep putting one foot in front of another. Such is life isn't it? the challenges we endure .. how much stronger you are. I will continue to keep you in my prayers for a sense of peace and normalacy. I have moved 10 times plus over the last many years. I have pulled my personal items to a minimum. Needs and wants. If I need it it stays wants are a whole different catagory. they stay only if there is room. It simplifies life a bit.

    I am finished with my second Dec doll quilt. Yipppee! how are you all doing on those?

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Thanks TammyB...Things thankfully are back to normal her in NY and we had a quiet Thanksgiving just the two of us and Ms Big up in RI...
    Krystyna our thoughts and prays are with you. Hope things are starting to come together. We had some family come stay awhile since they also got hit on LI but nothing like you, it does start to take a toll. Stay positive and let us know if you need anything and we'll all be happy to do whatever we can to help.

    Not yet nanci but hopefully they will both reach their destinations in the next week or so. I am waiting on a delivery from Launceston that was promised 4 days ago, it would have been quicker to drive the 3hrs and pick it up myself !!

    Thanks, everyone, for all your kindness and good wishes. I so wish I had been able to do this month's theme because I would have made a quilt with everyone's name on it -- I am thankful for all you wonderful QB members. You are amazing.

    I posted this elsewhere, but that bathtub decor will have to be put on the shelf for another time. Once they did the rip out (walls and floors so they can dry and disinfect) it became apparent that the storm surge knocked my poor little cottage off the foundation and cracked the ceiling beams ... so it's just a matter of time and figuring how the how's of it all, but the house is coming down.

    BUT ... I have to look on the sunny side -- if all works out we will be able to rebuild -- raising the house up 10 feet -- and I will have a bigger, sunnier, cleaner sewing room! (At least that's why I keep telling myself)

    Krystyna! My thoughts exactly. A bigger and better place to live and Sew! Glad your still trying to stay positive as I imagine, some days are harder than others. But maybe now you can have the sewing room of your dreams!
    Take care, day by day!

    Talked to Krystyna yesteday...so good to hear from her! She still needs our prayers, but is moving forward!

    I received a wonderful little log cabin red and whites DQ from Eagle1owl2u2, but haven't had a chance to post pics yet...recovering from knee surgery...but will when I can get upstairs and feeling better. It's beautifully made and she sent some extras...fabrics, cards, and super fun ornament, etc. I love it all! Thanks again Christine!

    Ronda, was going to post asking for prayers for your recovery, but didn't know if you had mentioned it here ... but now that you did ... our sweet Ronda is falling apart bit by bit so prayers and good wishes coming your way! And yes, we did talk. Like an idiot, I called her while she was on the way to surgery! YIKES!!!

    probably a great time to hear from a dear friend! been to many surgeries and would have loved a call. no matter what you're having done, it's a nervewracking time. best to both of you!

    You're so right Nancia! It was a terrific time to hear from a dear friend. I was able to shower this morning...yea! Life is good when you can shower, right?

    Nancia's DQ and my DQ should have crossed paths somewhere in the Pacific by now and are most likely caught up in the Christmas mail backlog. Let's hope a surprise is in store this week sometime
