I received a comment on one of my posts from a friend. It brightened my day and was
SO glad to hear from her.
Gwen moved to Baton Rouge after Katrina destroyed her home. She's a needleworker so it was natural to run into her at my LNS. I remember her telling us that her stash actually survived the hurricane because it was stored in a plastic container in an upstairs closet. And her needlework is fantastic. You can check it out on her blog.
I have some great memories of the time she spent here with us. She's a nurse so she worked at Our Lady of the Lake while she was here. One Sunday, a bunch of us went to a local tea shop. Gwen went with us. I don't know if she is aware of it or not (I guess she is now!), but we always did whatever we could to get her to speak. She has the most wonderful accent. We all just loved to hear her talk. Then again, I suppose some of us may have sounded different to her, Southern accents and all. I am so glad to be in contact with her again.
Check out her blog and a big hello to Gwen.
