    Oh ... and that gigantic fabric stash I had? Gone ... including the quilt I was working on for Melissa and Blaze's wedding. BUT we are alive! And that is a good thing.

    So sorry for your loss but you and yours are going to be ok. As you said you knew when you saw that picture.
    I know you have lost a lot but the Lord will get you through this.
    So glad to hear from you.
    Try to rest as much as you can.

    I can send along some UFOs so you can feel like an accomplished quilter again. They seem to be reproducing out in the cupboards.

    I am so glad to hear that you are OK. You have been in my thoughts and prayers all week. I had company and we were busy, but I checked the board several times a day just to see if someone had posted news. What a relief when your future daughter in law posted. She is an angel. Please keep us up to date and don't wait for all those state and federal organizations. If you need something, tell us. We will do whatever we can to help you and yours. I say "we" because I am sure there is not a member on here that wouldn't help out another member. I'm serious. If I find out you needed something we could have provided, I will come out there and.......... well, prob just hug you, but you get the drift!! As soon as there is an address you can receive from, please let us know. PM me, at the very least!! You have no idea how bad I want to point my car east and come help you! It's only a days drive, after all. Thanks. Onalee

    Hey Krystyna, Thanks for taking time away from your life to keep us up-dated. So many of us here care about you Cybor Friend! I am so sorry for all you've lost. But, I know you'll make it through. I still hear bits of your easy wit and humor coming through. And, I think when it's all said and done, You are going to need those along with your family, faith and friends. So big hugs to you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. And, I second buslady, We all care about you and want to help in whatever way we can.

    You can send Krstyna a gift card c/o Melissa. Rebuilding the stash comes after basics, like tooth paste. PM me. Dotty

    OH Krystyna, my heart is breaking for you infact I'm in tears. Wish there was some way I could help but I don't even have a pot to tinkle in. In fact I'm not doing any more swaps until we get straighten out I start getting my SSD. Only thing I have to offer is prayers and I've been praying for you all on the EC. Just take a deep breath and take it one day at a time. I can't believe they were giving you folks MRE's there horriable so you didn't miss anything if you didn't get one. I will say there M&M are good...LOL Well, I hope and pray your able to get things taken care soon! But I know how insurance company work! and some like to take there time...Good Luck and take care! God Bless

    yes and one day at a time is how we all move forward. Things ARE ONLY THINGS Krystyna you and yours are ALIVE. I know this is so hard but one foot one foot forward two back three forward it will happen. Priorities I agree, quilts and fabric are so hard to loose but other things are seriously more necessary. If we know what those are then that is the next step. Everyone wants to help sounds like that whole area needs help. Why not care packages donated to victims in the entire area? in krystynas name and honor.. give to everyone her neighbors her friends there they too are suffering. That is something as a group we could offer to do. It takes a village right and isnt this group a village unto ourselves? if each of us found one person who found one person help could make a big difference. ok enough preaching.. help as you can and feel best helping. I shall send a prayer for you Krystyna. May you find peace. With peace you shall find hope. And with hope you shall find its a new day. This is my prayer and wish for you and all who are in need of it.

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

    Krystyna, good to hear from you; thanks for checking in with us. We were worried. Remember, the will of God will never take you where the grace of God cannot protect you. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. When you have a mailing address and you can receive packages, let us know what you need and we'll send it!

    Krystyna Update!!!!
    Just got off the phone with Krystyna. She's at her sisters home and is trying to focus and take in all that's happened to her and her community recently. She is appreciative of everyone's prayers and kindnesses. I asked her what best she could use at this time and she said "money" is best, even over gift cards, although whatever people feel to do she is gracious about. If you want to, please send to the following address, which is her son's finance's home.

    Also, please note...she has no internet and phone service rare and spotty and cannot answer pm's from quilt board now?
