Blocks arrived in tornado torn Oklahome today
Today I received blocks from Lois (UK) and Linda (Dallas, TX). SO nice to get cheery blocks with the dreary weather we have been having here. It’s been raining pretty much since Monday, when the tornadoes came through. We came through unscathed…the nearest tornado touched down 3 -4 miles from us…actually 2 tornadoes…and wiped out the grocery store where my 21 yr. old daughter was going to work this summer. Now if we need something from the grocery store it will mean a 20+ mile drive each way. Hopefully they will rebuild quickly! Today I went to Barnes and Noble to spend the gift cards my kids gave me for Mother’s Day and bought Liberated Quiltmaking 2, by Gwen Marston. Maybe it will provide inspiration for using the blocks I won! I had previously decided I didn’t need the book enough to justify the cost, but since I can’t buy groceries or pay bills with a Barnes and Noble Card I splurged. I think that’s what the kids had in mind when they chose that gift!
