Star BOM Block #3
Well, that was easy! Not my best sewing efforts, but that is completely "user error"! LOL. It's hard to sew and watch news reports on Gustav at the same time.
I need to go prep and make a little Dutch Treat block to commemorate Gustav. I started appliqueing those blocks on July 4, 2004, and have over 100 done. I'm using the book as a diary of sorts, writing important events and the date on the page with the block. They're really small so it shouldn't take but about an hour to do.
I just talked to Don and Gail. Gustav has made landfall and has weakened significantly. Because it's coming at them sideways across land, it will be less than Cat 2 strength by the time it gets to them. The rain bands have not been too bad so far, but their power is out and a huge pear tree broke in half. The worse should reach them in about four hours. Of course, it's not over until it's over, but it seems at this point that they will be safe. However, I'm not going to stop worrying and praying until tomorrow!
