No photos to post...I'm just here to admit to you all that I am a very bad blogger. My excuses are mostly lame. I spent some time getting ready for a quilt retreat at the farm, and I enjoyed it very much. Faye at Mimi's Passions posted the photos of our sewing fun within moments of her arrival at home, even though she has a crazy, hectic life that involves work and ailing parents and in-laws.
I, however, left the retreat to deal with several inches of water in my basement at home. That basement was where my stash lives. Some of that stash was on the floor...or near the floor. Some was lost, some fabrics bled into others but survived the hot water washing and will be used someday, somehow. Books and magazines absorbed many times their weight in water and are now entoumbed in the landfill.
Framed photos, childrens artwork, and scrapbooking supplies met with the same fate. Some could be saved, others, not.
Roaring fans and horrible, obnoxious odors have made our home an unpleasant place to be, but slowly the smells are fading and hope is returning.........the carpet can be saved and the walls are drying, without any evidence of mold.
As life begins to return to normal, the call of my needle and thread grow stronger and I will soon take a photo of something created by my hands.
(Sure is a dramatic way of saying my freaking basement flooded, huh?)
Talk to ya soon chicks.
