Now we were lucky here in Chapel Hill. Hardly any rain and wind for a few short hours, but it was scary. We sat on our front porch for several hours and watched the wind blow the trees around. Every time the wind began to gust, my husband would stand up and look and I would stop what I was doing and watch... until it stopped again. I was sewing yo-yos for my yo-yo along. I kept that up for about 3 hours straight. It was a way to pass the time until it was over. A way to calm the nerves.
I was able to sew almost 50 yo-yos during that time. When it was over... this was all the damage:
|a few leaves|
|one small branch|
I also packed up my Bernina and took her to the shop for a tune up It was way past time for it. I will miss her and use this time to finish up some hand sewing that I need to do. If all else fails I will make yo-yos. I still have 685 left to do you know. And she'll only be gone a week.
Have a great week.
