Civil War Remembered ~ Block 44

Union
& a Freak Storm


We are quilting along with Barbara
Brackman's 2011 Civil War Quilt.

This is my block for this week.


I am visiting the northeastern
United States, just outside of New
York City, and a sudden snow storm
hit the area yesterday.  I'd say that
is taking the frost on the pumpkin
a bit too far...


This was a very early snow for the
area, the problem is the leaves are
still on the trees so as the wet, heavy
snow came down...


so did the tree limbs and
the power lines.  I was in a
house, that was not my own, all alone,
with no lights, no heat, no phone,
no food ~ no fun!
Let's just say, it was a long night.


But today, the sun is out,
the power is back on and I
finally got to sew again.

This afternoon I am meeting
my old friend from grammar
school, we have not seen each other
since the 70's.  Things are looking up!
