Huge trees get uprooted and fall on houses and powerlines and across roads (photo credit: ajc.com). I worked at Starbucks last night and it was crazy packed. The store had power but most of the surrounding neighborhoods did not so everyone came to camp out with their laptops. I imagine lots of people didn't know what to do without all the electronic "necessities" of life. I stopped by on my way home from the day job today and it was still crazy packed because a lot of people are still without electricity. At least most of the traffic lights are working now; the only thing worse than Atlanta drivers in the rain, is Atlanta drivers in the rain without working traffic signals.
OK I can't think of a segue so next topic:
I read the latest Elm Creek Quilts book. It was OK, a quick read, better than the last one (Quilter's Kitchen, which was more recipe book than story), but in my opinion, not as good as some of the earlier ones. I'm thinking maybe the story line has played out.
New quilt magazines arrived at my house a couple of weeks ago. I usually look through them a couple of times before tearing out projects to put into binders. I absolutely LOVE this quilt on the cover of June's American Patchwork & Quilting .
I think this is a "must do" at some point. I am sure I have enough scraps/stash to make it (probably two).
