thanks to all of y'all for your good wishes.... even tho we're relatively unscathed here it's still a huge loss. we have lots of friends and family in new orleans and north of the lake ....adn do business, have doctors there etc as well... some we've heard from, some not//. i grew up in new orleans a block from the river (in one of the few neighborhoods that's actually above sea level) and it's still a big part of me... it's one of those places that gets in your soul and stays forever.
it is immensely painful to watch whats going on. i've already started makgin work about it.
it looks like there will be a fund raiser on quilt art so stay tuned.....

Our thoughts are with you. Here in the Shreveport/Bossier area we escaped any damage - except for the heartache of knowing what friends and relatives have been through. Nice to be in a position to give solace, however, and refuge to family members. Long row ahead, but at least we can l√Ęche pas la patate to those in need.

I'd been looking forward to your coming to the Creston Valley Quilt Festival in beautiful BC, but all in all with the tragic current events this would be a difficult time.
Our love and prayers go out to all those affected by this terrible disaster.
