Fall Is Here!

Another hot day in northern Virginia but cooler weather is sure to come! I'm ready to open my windows and wear my favorite long sleeved tee shirts!!!
I've been watching the news and Weather Channel all week. It seems that Rita wants to wreck havoc on the coast of Texas. My family's thoughts are with you all in the path of the hurricane. And our fingers are crossed that New Orleans doesn't flood again. My son is working in NO for a few weeks with the Air Guard. We don't know if he will be sent back home or will wait out the storm. I'm sure we will hear some incredible stories from him!
I'm working on a reproduction sampler class for the Loudon Sampler Guild in Leesburg VA. The class will be held on November 12 and I will have a small trunk show there as well. The sampler comes from my son in law's family and it is a beauty.
Jackie and Bill Partlow~~the former owners of We Keep You In Stitches in Stephens City VA are living on the gulf coast of Florida and have been having some health problems recently. Please keep them in your thoughts!
I'm off to WV for a few days to help my father paint his house. He thinks that he can do everything that he did when he was 35 and at nearly 81 he has been climbing up and down a ladder for a week. My nerves can't take it so Chuck and I hope to help with the bulk of the painting this weekend!

Thoughts of those in need...

I have been glued to the television for days watching the news concerning the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It is unbelievable what so many are going through! Everyone in my family sends our thoughts and prayers to all those in need. I will send the profit made from this month's trunk show to a relief organization.
May God Bless All Those Affected By The Storm...
