Raindrops keep falling on our heads....


This was my workplace the day after Hurricane Isaac decided to make a lake out of it.  We had no electricity until Friday evening.  The employees were sure happy to get back to work.
 
I was so blessed....I live about 60 miles north of New Orleans so I had a lot of wind and rain, but I did not lose power until 10 pm the night of the hurricane.  I kept busy so I wouldn't be in a panic as the wind whipped thru my trees in my yard.  I live on a little higher ground so no flooding in my little part of the world.  We are still praying for those in South Louisiana who are under water.   My heart goes out to them.
 
 
I made my first rag quilt.....I love it!
 


 
 
Oops...got a little ahead of myself....had to get the seam ripper out and turn that last row around the right way.  But this was so fun and the best part....when you are finished...you are finished.  All you have to do is wash and dry it!
 
I can't wait to make another one!
 
I'll be back in a few days to tell you about some wonderful quilters I finally got to meet this last Saturday.  I am so thankful for all the wonderful people I have met because of quilting.
 
Please keep us in your prayers and keep on quilting!

Glad to hear all you lost was power. Mine went out Wednesday night as well. The hardest part about being off work was not being able to sew

Martha i have been thinking of everyone in your area, a scary time indeed, but glad you are ok. The quilt is great, well done!

Hi Martha, so glad to hear that you're okay there. I've lived through tornados but never a hurricane. I can only imagine how scary it must be. Your rag quilt is very nice. I went through a rag quilt phase a few years back, even made one with a Christmas tree design. Have fun quilting!
