We're Still Here! and Thank You!

Hi, just wanted to let everyone know that we are still at home, everyone is still on standby, in case the fire jumps.  But it is better for us. The fire has grown to over 6,000 acres, now mostly in the swamp, which they can't reach, so it just burns.  My son was putting out hot spots yesterday and a rabbit hopped out, with its tail on  fire, so he was able to spray it and put it out, hopefully it made it.  He also said the snakes have been racing out, they have to have a medic unit now in the area, in case of snakebite.

I would also like to thank everyone for their prayers and comments, they meant a lot to me. Bloggers are the best! It is so scary to think that you might lose everything except what you can carry away in the back of a car.

Now onto happier things,  I was able to make a few things this week, I have finally started on my elves. These are always great sellers at the show, I still need to add his glasses and a name tag.

 I made another Americana Annie.
 And a gingerbread Annie, I found the dress material at Joanns, I think it was left from last year.  I still need to make a large gingerbread man for her to hold.
Once again, thank you for all of your comments and thoughts.   Please keep us in your thoughts and pray for rain!!!


  1. Glad you are safe. Love Americana Anna.

  14. Hi,:-)
    Glad You're both OK!
    I was so scared.I know,that all people insure their properties,but to lose everything and start from the beginning,wherever it goes...It's really hard even to think.
    I hope the fire will get stopped.This is the huge area burnt.
    The elves are wonderful.They surely will be looking great with glasses.I did so in my time-for one of my dolls:-)I still have a packet of dolls' glasses left.
    I love Your *American* dolls and bagholders.We'll have to talk about one for me someday:-)I'd like to have one from You- a typically American,in American flag-dress:-)
    I'll be thinking of You warmly all the time.You're still on my mind and in my heart.
    Warm Hugs-Halinka-

  18. Hi Cyndy, I have been following the fires and hoping that all of you are okay. The picture you posted from your front yard did not look good.
