In any case, if you love sewing and (like me) don't like following the rules, this will be perfect for you. It's like painting with fabric!
On the weather front, the winds are starting to die down here (and luckily we only lost two trees in the storm) and it's sunny again and quite cold. We've gone from having the air conditioning running to turning the heater on within one week. That's how it can be here in the South. I'm not complaining though. Cold weather agrees with me!!
