After many nights of doing dishes like this,
rearranging the kitchen furniture so we could sit in front of a toasty fire for warmth,
we finally have our power back and can return to business as usual. Hooray!!
I have to say, there's really no place like home and I'm so thankful I have a home to return to. Many of those affected by Super Storm Sandy weren't as lucky. I believe I'll be thinking of those less fortunate than I for a long time -- how can I not? My home is a constant reminder of how lucky we are.
I'm itching to get back into the studio as soon as I take care of all the other items that were postponed these last two weeks. I did cross one thing off my "to do" list: I mailed off my pockets to Melanie Testa for her breast pocket project. On the second day after the storm I finished the embroidery on a second pocket (I took out my first effort), but didn't get a chance to sew the two sides together until I could borrow time on Natalya's sewing machine as soon as she had power. I suppose I could have hand stitched the two parts together, but my cold fingers didn't take too well to the idea so I waited.
That's all for now. 'Til soon, I hope! It's good to be back!
