I received a message on Facebook about a quilt that was found in the aftermath of the tornado that struck Washington, Illinois last week.
The message comes from Peddlers Way Quilt Co, who are also accepting quilt donations for those misplaced by the devastation.
The message reads:
This quilt was found on Devonshire in Washington, Illinois. Look familiar? It has been washed up and is a bit damaged from the tornado, but it is looking for its home. Please help!
Quilt with Beatles panel in center!
If anyone knows who this might belong to, please contact Peddlers Way Quilt Co!
Even smaller precious things have been found. Check this story out from the Huffington Post!
When Washington, Ill. resident Lindsey Grove placed her engagement ring in a box on her dresser for safekeeping Sunday morning, she had no idea it -- along with the rest of her home -- would soon be in the path of one of the deadliest November tornadoes in the state's history.
How they found her ring in all the rubble is beyond belief, but here is her sweet hubby proposing all over again! Read the story HERE. HEARTWARMING and heart breaking at the same time.
If you would like to make a quilt to help cover those who lost so much, read about the Quilts for Compassion Drive in yesterday’s blog post HERE.
Please do what you can to help!
Today starts my holiday prep for the upcoming week! My dad comes in from Arizona on Monday and I want all the grocery shopping done – and that means I am headed out to do all of that this morning, and transport it all up to our cabin, Quilt Villa today so the fridge is stocked and ready!
I’ve made my menus for the week. I’ve made ingredient lists.
I’ve found that I can NOT FIND the blades for my electric carving knife! So I think I need a new one that can just LIVE at the cabin – especially if we plan on doing holidays there from now on.
I’m loading the van with stuff I’ll need for the week while we are up there, including the extra crock pot for the make ahead mashed potatoes that are a must have!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
