I just packed up every donation quilt in this house - all nine of them - for victims of the Washington, Illinois tornado.
It's tough being a victim. We've been blessed to walk away from natural disasters with our health and many of our belongings. We were both affected by the tornado on April 21, 1967 in Belvidere, IL and recently by the September, 2013 Colorado floods. Many are not so lucky and I'm glad we can help is some small way.
The wonderful people at Peddler's Way I really need to visit this shop. are coordinating the efforts if you have any quilts that you want to donate. As of this morning, they are still accepting all sizes of quilts.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
I've included a picture of our backyard.
It's really cold out.
I just stepped out onto the screened porch
and snapped this shot through the screen
so it looks a little weird. sorry
It looks and feels like WINTER!
