All is well

On our news tonight they had this news bulletin and pictures of horrible devastation...right when we were having dinner around 7:30 pm. The only thing they said was several F4 tornadoes touched down in Southeast Virginia and the death toll was unknown. Well, southeast Virginia just doesn't get F4 tornadoes...normally. Big hurricanes yes, but not this. And we have lots of family there in that general area...Mother a brother, , a daughter, a son and those 3 beautiful granddaughters.... so you can imagine the worry. Well after phone calls to everyone, who ALL said "what are you talking about?" They are all fine. There were terrible storms that destroyed a lot of homes and businesses, and took 1 confirmed life so far. But none of our family was affected and for that I am thankful, as my heartfelt prayers go out to those who were affected.

Nothing new's hot and I'm working on quilts. A peek below of the one I finished today....No Mary, it's not yours. But it will be yours soon...

Have a great night!


  1. Well I didn't see the news either - good thing you already checked on everyone.

    This one's pretty! I wasn't even going to ask about mine!

  2. Glad the family is all ok. That quilt is beautiful! Wish I could see the faces of the owners when they see their quilts after you've quilted them.

  3. hiya,
    Im from chesapeake va. it was a scarey time indeed last night. I am about 5 miles from all the damage. we had higher winds than normal but we came thru ok. your right, we NEVER get tornados here, when I hear about the tornado warnings in tv I know it usually about northeast north carolina. my friends auntie's antique store in Driver, Va is gone. another girlfriends workplace across the street from Obici Hospital was distroyed. it will be a long time before things get back to normal. and hurricane season is just around the corner too! glad to hear your family is ok. (mauh) Liz
