I'm Back!

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!

You are such a trooper, Vivien!

Lovely stitching, too.

I am so glad you made it back into the 20th century, and had little damage.
