Yesterday we hit 103 degrees. It was hot hot hot! Then about 10:30 last night the storm came through. I have never seen wind like that. It looked like a tornado was outside our front door. Eighty mile an hour winds. There are 1.2 million people in our area without electricity; almost 500,000 in Northern VA alone. We were really lucky we didn't lose power. There are trees down everywhere. I went to our LNS to sign up for the Lock In later this month and in one place half of the six lane highway was closed because a tree was across it.
Now on to to the fun stuff. While down at In Stitches I picked up the new Mirabilia pattern "Dressmaker's Daughter". I love it. I also went ahead and got the called for fabric - 32 ct chocolate - and the Waterlilies (thanks Patricia for helping me decide!)
Well, everybody try to stay cool.
Thanks for stopping by.
