I got some bad news from Ray. One of my blog readers, Arline, who has donated quilt tops to Ray in the past and one who comments regularly here ended up having a lot of damage to her home from hurricane Ian. Arline’s house got significant damage and she will not be living there anymore. Arline was so sweet and contacted Ray. She asked him to come and get some of her sewing things as she was needing them to be gone and not have to deal with it all as she started making a new transition.
Arline sent a pile of quilt tops and even some paired with backings.
Ray was so good and measured them all and took pictures so we can share them with you. I hope you enjoy the parade of Arline’s amazing work! Isn’t she great with color??

Arline even sent a finished top.
I am so thankful that Arline thought of Ray as she is going through the hard process of making a new start. If you’re reading Arline, please know we are thinking of you and hope your transition is as smooth as possible.
Ray also gave a little update on himself. He writes:
“Went out to dinner to celebrate running tap water this afternoon. We had been living on bottled water and runoff water and cold pool water for a little over a week. A hot shower never felt so good!!”
Thinking of you all who are dealing with the aftermath of weather…or life. Many thanks to Ray and to Arline.
