During February, Winter Storm Rocky hit our area hard. We were without power for two days. Fortunately, we still had running water, our propane stove to cook with, and a fire place to keep us warm.
But having no electricity slowed down my sewing opportunities. So I spent some time researching and dreaming of various sewing and quilting techniques I would like to try. My husband kept the bird feeders filled, and the birds arrived in flocks. I guess Rocky was hard on them also. But it provided me with lots of photo opportunities.

It was an adventure for a while, but in all honesty I love my modern conveniences. The experience has fostered in me a new respect for the quilters of the past who did everything without electricity, but still produced beautiful items. Appreciating all I have been blessed with, Linda
