Thanks bevdee! I hadn't thought about saving buttons. Wish I
had the talen to quilt!

Bitsy, I have the
glass half empty moments, too. This oil spill is just plain
overwhelming to say the least. The damage is Epic and will surely
change the Gulf coast economy and wildlife if not forever, for a
very long time. It certainly does seem that all efforts are futile,
like we're just throwing sand at the tide. Seems for every
thousands of gallons cleaned up thousands more pour out. I wonder
if it's pouring out faster than it's being cleaned up.

Blaming is a
pointless waste of energy IMO. For now, it needs to get fixed, and
then afterwards, we need to learn from this so as not to
repeat.

I
feel many things about it all Bitsy. But mostly, sad. My heart just
breaks. Over and over and over again.

Yeah,
but wth am I going to do with 6 count em 6 quart jars of buttons? I
think they look cool in the clear jar. My Gramma re-used hers!! I
wish I still had the patience to sew my own clothes. I just don't
any more. As for quilting? I do squares on the machine. I use old
jeans. I recently took 3 quilt tops to the shop to have them
quilted. I pulled my denim one out, told them what I wanted - light
batting, brushed denim back. They measured out the brushed denim,
put the work order on it, and slid it to the side. Then I pulled
out my B-day gift - 2 tops quilted in the 1930s. My mom got them at
an auction. They oohed and aahed. One of the quilterladies put her
palms to her cheeks, and cooed, "oh bless her HEART!!!" The other
one said,"tiny piecework" They were admiring the tiny tiny hand
stitching. Nothin about my very functional quilt with the 5 inch
squares!!! I was so proud of it, too - all my intersections lined
up!! It was all straight!! Nope - not a word. No bless my heart or
nothin...

I don't think
anything has happened to this Nation since 9/11 which has affected
Americans this intensely and personally. WE DO CARE. We are
outraged, frustrated, heartbroken, overwhelmed and
scared.

This is a crisis
BEYOND our capacity to solve. And -- directly or indirectly -- it
is impacting each and every citizen of this country.

Just wanted you to
know that you are not alone. Not by a long shot. We are all in this
nightmare together.

Bitsy, I just noticed that you mentioned Flylady! If I noticed
it before, I forgot to mention it. Love her, she's
great!

I hope you are
feeling a little better today.

Take
care.

I am
thanks. Traffic is backed up here. Just watched Life Flight come in
and take someone away. I watched the concert on CMT rather than go
over and get in it.
