What a beautiful story. I love how crafting filled your soul and gave you more to give. I also love how family, friends and strangers came together. We saw this in Connecticut after the October storm and Hurricane Sandy. Our love to all of you. And what a wonderful quilt, so much love.

Must craft....must craft.....

This so totally rocks. Not nly have you made a beautiful quilt but your story along with it is beautiful too!

I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!

Your story made me tear up, and the resulting quilt is such a celebration of life. It's just wonderful.

I really can't add to what everyone else has said but this is pretty amazing.

A beautiful quilt and had hard story to read from so far away.  The amount of work it is going to take to regain the tiniest bit of normalcy is unbelievable.  I hope you are able to continue to stitch and create while you deal with this.  When it becomes clear what is needed I hope you are able to share that with us as well.

What a moving story! I'm so relieved to know you're fine and your friends and family too. It's good that strangers came to help and that you could help too. Take care of yourself and don't forget to rest though.

Since crafting seems to help you weathered the storm, you will likely craft a lot in the next weeks. Why not an i-treehouse to put your beautiful next quilts in?

What a wonderful quilt! It has great design. I love the little houses and the trees. I like how it explodes with colors. It is a very bright and cheery quilt. Ivy is very lucky.

Thank you all for your kind words.  I'll keep updating the first post until I stop sewing Smiley  HAH!  I think this is going to be a looooong haul.  You all may see several/many quilts made in the process.

RackyCoo - thanks for the feature.  Alas, I wish it were for something else.

It is all what crafting, and Crafters, are about. Thank you for sharing both your quilt and your story.
