Good Morning
woke to the sound of another large tree branch crashing onto the back side of the house and another further out in the yard. These are 85yr old / 100 ft tall water oak trees and they get loaded with the acorns and fill with the rain water and CRASH!!! the branchs that are falling now are about 6 or 7" diameter and 5 ft long... :( ..what scares me is the tree they are falling from! If the very large branch directly above the house falls, it could very well take out the entire backside of the house!! please pray that does NOT happen........ would mean loosing my sewing area!! YIKES!! where will i sort the Christmas Stars?? LOL :lol:

Oh dear Suzi, sounds like it is time for you to have a date with a man with a chainsaw to remove that branch. I did the same thing to the ash behind my home last year. It gave lovely shade and I hung the bird feeders from the branch but I realized that it was over the roof, and when it was full of leaves it hung LOW. Tree is still there but missing an arm and I feel safer.

Good morning everyone. Big Friday hugs to you all! Suzi gets an extra becasue of her scare. Hope it all gets "calmer" for everyone soon! These fall storms are getting worse it seems. Just glad it is friday. Hopefully quieter at work today but I am whispering it in case the work police are llistening...

Have a great one everyone!

Good morning everybody! I spent the evening cutting the blocks for my own flannel rag quilt.
I got a good portion of them cut, and am working on them again this a.m. I made a rotisserie chicken dinner last night that was wonderful, but the clean-up seems to take forever!
Gina, I would love to have wooden shelves too, but that didn't happen, so I found one of those heavier metal shelves, like they have on some of the cooking shows, and they are working out great. I got some canvas baskets at WM and my fabric does well in them. I already had some plastic tubs and they are on there with fabric as well. It's very sturdy and it's overloaded, believe me! I put them together myself too!
Suzi, I am so worried for you! What a scary time with all of those heavy limbs falling.
Work for me today too, I work the evening shift, so a bit more time to cut blocks.

Morning all, today is swim day for me, but wanted to stop in to say Hi:icon_hi:
Suzi those limbs sound scary and November is a windy month for us , don't know about Florida. I know it is costly to have trees cut but the cost of not having them cut is even more! After Fran(storm) we had like 16 trees cut out of our backyd. Man Jim met at Bojangles cut them for us if he could have the wood. Now there was a good swap! Stay safe, I'm off to swim. Saundra

Hello everyone, Have a great day. I'm sending good thoughts your way. I'm doing laundry and trying to work on my hand quilting. Also have a 2 wall hangings to work on now. Not to mention the two quilts I want to do. I'm getting overwhelmed. No new classes untill I finish some of the stuff I'm working on. Love to all, Jan

I have now discovered the big difference between New York and the Virginia Carolina Border..Wind and fog!! All is fine tho and Im sorry for those of you that suffered damage.
Big hugs to you Gina..Your a very strong and beautiful mom, Im so glad the girls from here were able to bring comfort. Cyber hugs really do touch the soul :)
I am so far behind on reading the blogs... just throws my hands up and says tomorrows another day :)
Jan I miss you..was going to call you but never charged my cell phone and the house phone is digital ..no power no phone lol
The wonderful part was I bought Rodney a lap harp on the Blue Ridge Parkway last time we went and I have to say it was the most beautiful way ever to fall asleep. He's marvelous at it,,,right now from sheet music but no matter the case its like angel music.
I've also got a ton of housework done...and sewing. My pile of UFO's would make an alien cry lol

Don't I know it...used it on a piece of furniture iin the hallway and unaware it got on the floor until I almost wiped out not once but three times. Will I ever learn...not likely done the same thing before:lol::lol:

PS The harp music would be so soothing. You lucky girl. You deserve it!
