She's here!

I've been meaning to post this since yesterday, but haven't had a chance.  My Sweet 16 has made it safe and sound from California!  I drove to the UPS center to get it as soon as the kids got on the bus yesterday morning.  I got home, and barely had time to set it in the table before I had to head out again.  My schedule has been busy lately,  I may not get to really give her a go until this weekend.  But she does look good just sitting there!  
My new (to me) Sweet 16!

Tomorrow is our sewing guild's Annual Meeting.  Looking forward to it.

DH's new toy thanks to Hurricane Sandy arrival.
Hurricane Sandy is heading our way later this weekend and into Monday.  They are predicting storm outages beginning on Sunday afternoon.  Our back yard is an open field and we can get a ton of wind coming across the back.  We frequently lose power during the storms, so DH stopped by Home Depot on the way home from work, but of course they did not have any portable generators on hand.   I called the store tonight at 9 PM to see when they would be getting some in.  I was told that they literally just had a truck arrive with 67 generators on it.  My DH left immediately for the store - about 5-10 minutes away. When he came back home, he said he got the last one they had.   I didn't think there would be a crowd at Home Depot after 9 PM on a Friday night, but I'm glad he got a unit!   I'm thinking that if we lose power, I may be working on my treadle.  I have a small project (quilted potholders) that I have planned to make without electricity using my treadle, so this may be the right time for that project.

Updated Sewing Room coming soon...

Happy Stitching!!
