Hurricane Sandy hit our area at the beginning of the week...we lost power for about 12 hours overnight. Not so bad. Thankfully it was cooler too so our freezers weren't really affected. I would have hated to lose all of the meat we keep in our freezers.
The storm did give me free time (despite children that were not easily entertained)...so I fired up the ole sewing machine. First I took some reusable grocery bags I have had cut out for over a year, and finished them. I LOVE them...I can't wait to make more.
