Boise fires, mosaic, sewing
Yesterday evening we lost 17 homes and 1 life in the Boise foothills, from a sudden fire storm. You can read about it here I feel so sad for those families, most had to run from their homes in minutes.
A gentleman they interviewed while he watched his home burn from a distance didn't even have time to put shoes on. Let us all say a prayer for those families. I can not begin to comprehend what it would be like to lose everything.
On the lighter side, it was very hot here yesterday so stayed in and tackled my sewing room.
I make a mess when I sew but I just can't start sewing in a mess. Just like cooking I can't cook in a messy kitchen. Not that I do much cooking anymore.
Now when the mood hits me I can begin sewing again.
While I am waiting for the quilting bug to hit me again, this what I have been playing with.
A bird feeder wip (work in progress).
There is something therapeutic about breaking dishes.
My favorite adhesive.
