The news coming out of West, Texas, a town near Waco, isn’t good tonight. There was a fire and explosion at a fertilizer plant there. I only know what I’m reading online but it sounds like quite a few houses were destroyed, as well as damages to an apartment complex and a nursing home. I’m praying the injured will survive. Property can be replaced.
Let’s think about sending some quilts to help those who have suffered a loss. Even when we have insurance to cover our property, it’s nice to know someone cares enough to give something they’ve made. I saw it first hand in Joplin, MO after the tornado and in the Bastrop, Texas area after the fires.
We all have lots of UFOs . . we’ve just listed them. I have friends in Waco who can help distribute the quilts. Please don’t send anything yet but be thinking about what you might can get finished quickly and send to me. I’ll post again after I know more.
Thanks to quilters for your generosity! I will never forget your generosity in Joplin. We were in the midst of the move and I hadn’t planned to do anything but you all wanted to do something and you did. We may need to do it again . . I’ll let you know more later.
