Hi Everyone -
Just a quick note to let you all know that we're all fine - we just had rain here in central PA from the hurricane. It started Saturday afternoon and was over by Sunday noon. We got a couple of inches, which was sorely needed, so that was a good thing for us. Our daughter in Massachusetts, however, still has no power from Sunday morning - they're saying it could take up to a week to have power restored there. Her husband is worried about his ice cream in the freezer, so I told them to start eating!! The rest of the family, from Virginia Beach and the D.C. area, just had minor damage - nothing serious, thank goodness. Hope you all came through ok.

Shake, Rattle & Roll

Hi Everyone -
All is calm and quiet after our earthquake yesterday. That was really a funny feeling. I was sitting at the computer posting and all of sudden, things really started shaking. The house was creaking and moaning - scary. This was only a 5.8 - I can't imagine what it would be like to go through a stronger quake!! No damage here, thank goodness. A picture did get knocked off the bookshelf onto the floor and a couple of knick-knacks were knocked over, but otherwise all is well. Now we're watching hurricane Irene - we could use the rain but not the winds :o)

Hope you all are well - keep smiling -

Another Sunday

Hi Everyone -

I'm still here - can't believe that it's been over a month since I last posted!! Where does the time go??? Anyway, Sunday was our monthly get together of Sundae Quilters. We went to Marie's house and got to "play" in her new sewing room - it's wonderful!! Look at that cute Halloween wall hanging that Shelly finished!! And Bonnie got her binding sewed onto her quilt, too. That's Marie looking formal with her gloves on - she was doing some machine quilting on a baby quilt needed asap!! And she got it done - looked really beautiful. It was a relaxing time with lots of laughs - as usual :o)

Oops - got to go - we're having an earthquake and the house is shaking - will post later -
