Quilting in the Conflagration


So I got it finished. Jewel of the Orient. Now I can hand it off to Cathy... I feel so impotent with this fire raging through my city. All I can do is sew and cook... I've already cleaned out the extra pillows and blankets--I almost gave away my husband's favorite warm blankie!--and canned ready-to-eats--they won't take homemade goods and took them to the stadium yesterday. Now they're asking us to stay off the roads and conserve power.

I think I'll go sew some more. I just have to be smart about the iron. It's hot inside and too smoky outside to open the windows!

I'm glad to hear you're still safe.

Can you send me your recipe for butternut squash soup with apple confit? I collect butternut squash recipes and am always on the lookout for a new one.

Hi Desi!
I've just caught up on your posts (not all of them though, you're so creative, I can't keep pace! Lol!). I loved the pic of you and your Hello Kitty sewing machine. I sure relate to this staying sane thanks to our creative hobbies...
As always, you're showing wonderful projects and I DREAM of being as talented as you. Thanks for the sharing and inspiration. These seeds will grow.
And one last special thank you for your kindest comment on my blog some time ago. I hadn't come back to blogging until now, but I always had in mind to tell you how cheerful you've been to me.
Take care,
Lili
