Well thankfully we had no problems with Irene in my part of NH. Neighbors lost some trees but we fared well. Northern NH and Vermont got hit quite hard with flooding and there are still many roads closed. My husband and I have been in Philadelphia and went by Patterson NJ where it is still flooded and even from the highway you could see how high the water continues to be. My heart goes out to anyone who was affected.
The reason we were in Philadelphia was for my husband's great aunt's 108th birthday. She is amazing. People, she has perfect skin. Smooth and lovely and I asked her how she looks so young and she replied, "Chocolate, no spouse and no kids." She was never married so no husband or kids and she loves her chocolate. We all need to start eating chocolate right now! She was ahead of her time as she was a working woman when it was unheard of. She worked for the YWCA her whole life.
Since we never lost our power from Irene I got some sewing done on Sunday.
I got all the vertical panels of my Stems quilt sewn together and I love it. Now just need to out on 2 borders and this will be done. Be sure to check in on Tuesday as I will be having a giveaway.
