    Connie,
    I found my birth father and saw him for the first time since I was 14 months old, on March 4th of this year.
    He was in a VA hospital.
    Korean War Veteran.
    I looked for 40 years for him. Since I was 18.
    After my 6.5 hours with him, I came home and called that states QOV chairperson.
    She took to my father a QOV Quilt 3 days later, and 10 days after that, he died.
    I have pics of him crying as he's receiving it from her.
    I have that QOV Quilt. It's in my bedroom hanging above my bed. 
    It is meandered. 
    Would of been a lot prettier/nicer had someone put some time into it. Not over the top, but just anything but meander.
    I'll post some pics if I can figure out how to add them here with my phone.

    Thank you all for you thoughts and prayers!
    Fire is now 83% contained and we have been allowed back into our homes. No losses in our little village, but a nearby area lost 105 homes! I'm very thankful for the firefighters and law enforcement officers who put themselves in harms way to protect us!
    Lenni is put back together and I am ready to quilt again!

    Thank God for our brave Firemen and prayers for all affected by the fire.
    It is so dry here and there are multiple fires in several mountain communities around here.

    You may have heard about the fast moving wildfire that has been burning in my area around Wrightwood, CA. . My husband and I saw it on Tuesday, just after it started, as we were coming home from a doctor appt.. We always hate to see a fire in these dry condition, but were not too concerned as it was about 15 miles from our home. However, it moved so fast and furiously that by Wednesday, we were given the notice to evacuate. Once we saw the flames coming over a nearby ridge, we did just that! We have been staying at my son's in Hesperia, out of the line of fire.
    If you have ever had to evacuate (our 3rd time in 28 years), it is hard to decide what to take and to leave! I did convince my husband that in addition to our furbabies and vital documents that the head to my Lenni had to come too! So we packed her up and took her too!
    Things look very much better in the fire area now. The flames were within 1000ft of the easternmost homes, but the firemen and change in wind direction were able to keep these homes safe. Sadly, the fire destroyed at least 96 homes (and still assessing) in the valley a few miles from us. We are still waiting for the evacuation order to be lifted, but are much relieved that it appears our homes are safe. Requesting prayers for our families who have lost so much! And much praise to those brave firefighters who stand between us and the fire!

    Many good thoughts coming your way and to those who have lost so much and those fighting the fires. We have a newer one in our area now too. So scary.

    I can't imagine! I am praying for you and all who are affected  by the fires. And a big Praise God for those called to stand in the gap for you against the fire! Big hugs from here, and hug your sweet Lenni for me.

    Glad to hear that you are OK and that your home appears to have survived.  It seems as though the entire state is on fire, so much destruction, so sad.

    Well today is a big day for me.  I have formally resigned from my job and will retire as of Sept. 30th.  I actually only have 12.87 days to work, 102.96 hrs but whose counting.  In about 2 min. I'll only have 95.96 minutes :-) the remaining time I will have to use my vacation time because we can no longer be paid out.  I will be keeping the twins full time when my daughter goes back to work.  On that note they are growing and doing well.  Landon is now up to 8.4 lbs!  We are doing out best to fatten him up.  They are so precious, lots of work but precious.  I've taken on the 8 pm and 11 pm feedings and I wouldn't trade it for anything!  They grow up so fast it will be over in a blink of an eye.  We took them last week for a photography session.  Anybody in the Albany area if you want the information on the photographer let me know, she is more than worth the money!  Fabulous session.  I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures.  This was what we woke to as our teaser this morning.  Can you stand it?  I can't!  I want a mural of it.  Just makes me smile!

    I have been seeing open toes on quilting machines, and was "window shopping" on the APQS site for the hopping foot that would work on my machine. I knew there had to be more to it than that foot shown, the shaft just wasn't long enough. I sent an email to APQS through the "contact us" on the website and had an answer in a matter of minutes. That is service!!! So happy I have an APQS machine.

    Here is the latest thing I quilted. I took an old pair of jeans my daughter could not longer wear and up-cycled them to create this sunflower bag. I stitched sunflowers with loose background fill,and pebbles, I also added spider webs and spiders. This was a lot of fun I have another pair waiting for  to transform. Thanks for looking have a great friday
