October NewFO


Gosh, another month gone!  And Christmas is getting closer - well, I am thinking more of that great Turkey Dinner first!  Let's see, this month was not one, but two Blog Hops participated in, FMQ Challenge, Color Challenge (pillow cases), Jelly Roll Challenge, doll quilt, pillows,  and three minis with Kunda's quilt along. And the quilt that went to Quilt Market (still no photos).  Oh, a few more things here and there - and sorting and organizing to get ready for next year's NewFO.  YES, next year - if it is gathered, boxed, and labeled - so much easier to find and do.  I didn't do this month's Schnibbles as both patterns were very similar to something I have already done this year - and I really don't need any more quilt tops to add to the pile on 'that chair'.

And thank you to all of you with your cares, concerns, and prayers.  We , luckily, did not get the amount of Sandy predicted for our area.  Although I cannot really celebrate about it as there are so many that are going to be in such dire need - and Sandy is not gone yet - still blowing around, heading north, dumping rain (snow) for the next several days. 


And thinking how lucky we were - my poor daughter's horror when she got this call - yes, SIL is postal delivery person and a tree fell on his truck today (Tuesday) while making rounds.  In knowing half of those lost have been from falling trees - OMG.  Thankfully, he was not hurt! 

CLOSING THOUGHT

If you know of a blogger - keep in touch to see if they are OK.  Anyone need anything - we are all here for them - let us know.  I know of a few not reachable yet possibly due to power outages, so hoping!!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  6. I'm so glad your community wasn't destroyed like it was last year. I was worried. It is difficult to imagine all the damage in the north east caused by this terrible storm.
    Glad your SIL is okay.
    You have had a very busy, productive month, girlfriend.

  14. Glad to see that your area is ok from Sandy. . .we lost power Monday night & just got it back last night. No damage to our property but there are a lot of people that were not so fortunate.

    Hope all stays well.
