If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Comment by Gail Brown yesterday

Zoe,  We are in Jacksonville at GDs house right now.  Children from Virginia are coming here  sunday night, we will go back to Lynn Haven on Monday.  They have arranged for a large storage pod to be there Monday afternoon and we will pack up and move to Virginia.  They have several places in mind for us and we have been looking on computer as well.  They have told us that we are no longer in charge of anything for the next month, and that we should just "chill".  We are trying to obey their instructions.  Thanks to every one that has thought of us or prayed for us, we are very grateful.

Gail, Will you plan to go back to Florida, or are you done? I am so sorry that you lost your apartment. I have been to Lynn Havan about 2 years ago so I know how small and close the community is.  If I have an opportunity I will go volunteer when the opportunity arrives. I am in Pensacola and we only got light rain and wind.  Having 4 dog that do not get along, I don't know how we would get out if a storm came this way. Mom said that the traffic is so bad you can get stuck on the hwy trying to get away. I have noticed I10 is only 2 lanes getting out- that is crazy ! I was used to Texas with 10 lanes one direction. I am glad you all are safe.  Let us know what you lost and need, we all might have extras... esp, fabric.

Passing on message from Linda :

Once again my computer is down. I can't post to the UFO group from my phone.  Would you please post a message for me to Gail and all our friends in Michael's path that they are in my prayers. 

We are experiencing some rain and slightly cooler weather from the hurricanes from the Pacific but it's minor. I'll take it over the NE Ohio weather any day. Indy is still adjusting to hearing coyotes all night. His safe place is the middle of our bed.

I'm beginning to see floor space so maybe can think about setting up my sewing room. One of two cabinets I ordered arrived yesterday. The pullouts for kitchen cabinets were ordered yesterday and will be in in 2 weeks.


<and I am working! hahaha>

Gail, so sorry that you suffered such loss and devastation from the hurricane.  You're fortunate that your family is helping you.  They sound so nice doing all that they can so you will be close to them as you start rebuilding your lives.

Gail, glad you made it through safely. That storm was a monster! Hope you find a perfect nest to feather with quilts and love. You are lucky to have such a wonderful, large raised them right!

Gail, hope all goes well with resettlement.  Just cannot imagine going through something like that.  My SIL has a home being built in Wilmington NC...not sure what Florence did there.  Prayers for you all.

Comment by Deanna Davis on Monday

Gail, prayers for you and your husband during this time. Glad to hear you are safe. And of course we can all provide you with re-stash :) 


Comment by Mary Moore on Monday

/Gail, When you are settled, please let me know and I will send fabric to help with your stash.

Comment by Gail Brown on Monday

We will be okay. My Grand daughter is putting us up, as well as putting up with us.  She's a jewel, we love her so much.  Next week 2 of our daughters an one son are coming to pack us up and move us to Virginia near them.  They are already looking at houses and apartments for us. I did bring some of my UFOs with me so I'll be fine.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on Monday

Prayers for all who have lost their homes and are suffering great loss in Florida. So, sorry for your loss, Gail. Prayers that all will turn out well for you in the end.
