Gatlinburg and parts of Pigeon Forge has been evacuated due to forest fires.  Please keep everyone including firefighters in our thoughts and prayers.

How awful, Diana!  So many places being evacuated. Thanks for the local info. I will keep everyone in my prayers.  How close are you?

I live about 30 miles from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.  I go there often.  We have had to deal with the smoke when the wind blows right or when it's cloudy and the smoke settles into the valley.  Some quilt friends have already lost their homes.  I keep hoping for more rain to help.
