The past two weeks have taken a toll on everyone in this area. I have listened to so many personal accounts ranging from tragic to miraculous, despairing or hopeful, anger, laughter, tenderness, gratitude...etc. However, the overwhelming theme seems to be our dependence on one another. The first responders as well as neighbors helping neighbors -- all are essential to our community. My dear neighbor Mary brought me a thermos of hot coffee every morning when I had no power. I am nominating her for sainthood!
The biggest highlight has been the arrival of my signed copy of Victoria's book. I am thrilled to announce that my "new favorite quilt" is appearing on page 17! I made this with a lot of help from my 15 Minutes Bee pals who are listed in the book. Thanks again for all who contributed bow ties and "made fabric" for this special quilt. It's another great example of community effort.
Now I want some down time to recover and get ready for whatever happens next. Thanksgiving will have a whole new meaning this year.........
