Well, it's been quite a time up here in NH. Perhaps you heard on the news we had a BIG storm up here Thursday. Luckily I did not get the snow where I am but boy did it rain. And then the wind started-I thought I was Dorothy in Kansas. My favorite Vera Bradley umbrella is toast, boo hoo-turned inside out several times! They say when a tornado arrives it sounds like a freight train and that is exactly what this wind sounded like during the night---and then it got louder. It was really scary. So we've been without power but it's finally back and we did not lose any of our trees. We had a bunch of trees taken down last fall thank goodness otherwise they would have been on top of the house. We were warm with our wood stove and we had lights from some of the oil lanterns we have. We went to my daughter Caryl's house Friday night to watch tv so that was a nice respite. I was able to cut out a quilt from the Meadowsweet fabric I pictured in my last post. I'll get sewing it soon. It's going to be a while before some of our friends get their power back so we are some of the lucky ones. So I'll get things back to normal here and hopefully post some quilt pictures soon.
