Alarms, fire trucks, firefighters, emergency vehicles, EVACUATION, NO you can't take your sewing machine with you, everyone meet at Flynns' house to regroup, off to dinner as planned, new hotels, no toothbrushes, nightgowns or clean undies, no place for class the next day - oh, wait, we find a nice place for class, go ahead and get your stuff out of your old room, and your machines and sewing supplies, peaceful new spot for class and quilters are so adaptable - isn't that part of quilting? Making the best out of what you have and what you can find to add to it?
We all survived and so appreciate the good nature and calm spirit of our quilter friends this year Wow, what can we do to top it in 2014!
Here are some pictures from last week. The first ones are from the team that is fighting the Rock Creek fire, aren't they great pictures? I copied them from inciweb which is a really useful website if you live in wildfire prone areas. The Rock Creek fire is not out and probably won't be until we have snow, but we are so grateful for the professionals here working the fire and that we don't have a huge and devastating fire like the one in Yosemite.

Well, that's all the news for this week except John has been asked to teach at the International Quilting Festival of Ireland in June 2014. Wouldn't you love to tour Ireland with John Flynn and take in a great quilt show? We promise there won't be a forest fire!
Take care, and don't throw anything that is burning out of your car window! Brooke
