    Weathering Sandy!

    In-spite of hurricane Sandy, have been able to put the binding on my fall wall hanger today. So far so good, but still have this evening to get through and the winds are very high and it is pouring rain. This bad weather will continue through tomorrow. The coast locations such as Ocean City, Maryland and Atlantic City, NJ are getting hit hard. We lost power for a few hours but it did come back on. Hopefully our luck will hold out! Here's the quilt!

    Here in the western part of central NJ it's very windy with cold rain. This AM temps were actually quite pleasant and no rain. That started around 9AM. Definitely getting windier now and forecast is for that to continue to get worse. Eye of the storm is about an hour away from Atlantic City landfall according to local news now. Still have power so have been busy getting laundry done in the event we lose power later tonight/tomorrow. At least we'll have clean clothes for a few days! Everyone in the area...be safe!

    Your fall wall hanging is beautiful. Prayers for all those in the path of Hurricane Sandy. Be safe and stay dry. I have relatives from SC all the way up to NYC.

    I, too, am sitting out Sandy in PA...power blinks, so do not dare to start the long arm machine...wind is fierce. I am afraid we will have all the screens blown out of the windows by morning

    Love your quilt KEEP SAFE

    Very cute!! I am in York County as well and we were fortunate not to lose power at all. It was a really ugly, rainy, windy night.

    Very cute wall hanging. We are having rain and some flooding on the West coast but it seems like nothing in light of Sandy.
