Fun in my fabric world....

Monday, October 29, 2012




Hurricane Sandy that is! We are safely bunkered down in our Washington DC hotel. We have fudge and chocolate covered pretzels....we are hoping that will meet our food needs! Who knows what the next day will bring, but we are fine and have stitching ready to go! At present all is pretty quiet with light rain...hoping it does not get too bad, but the city seems well prepared.


We arrived at lunchtime and then spent the afternoon racing around the major sites in case we do not have another chance.


It is a beautiful city...so much history...something beautiful everywhere I look. It would be lovely to see it when there is not a hurricane heading our way.


Wish us luck!

I thought about you girls as soon as I heard this. Keep together and keep safe, and I am sure you have a new project you can start stitching in the meantime.

I hope you are all safe and still have a nice time.

Stephanie said...

Stay safe. You have the essentials -- food, friends, fun, fabric. Now if the power just doesn't go out!

Hmmm candles, bottled water, first aid kit....nope stitching and chocolate! Sounds like my kind of emergency! All the best hope it goes around you or runs out of puff.

I am just one hour north of you and we fully expect to lose power some time today. What an adventure you are having. It will make a great story AFTER you get back home.

Melissa said...

Take care! But you know, stitching and fudge doesn't sound like a bad combo ;)

Sounds like you are having quite the vacation and now you're here for an historic storm! I love that you guys are fascinated by squirrels. Do you have chipmunks in Australia?

Marg said...

Stay safe and bummer about the hurricane, but at least you have friends and stitching to keep you company.
