A Bowl Full of Halloween

Well, it's been one heck of a week.  Hurricane Irene caused quite a scare and a few problems at the Lewis residence.  A tree blew down and took out the transformer on our street.  It sent some sort of electric spike into our house and we lost power for awhile and a few key items.  One of which being my wonderful and faithful Brother sewing machine.  Oh the tears... :(
I know it could be worse, but gosh I loved that machine.  I will need to purchase a new one soon so that I can get back to what I love.  I can still cross stitch, but there won't be any finishing going on. 
 * * * * * 
On a happier note, I've got a picture of the pinkeeps I did finish before Irene fried my sewing machine.

I love how these came out and it has put a smile on my face today to see them all together in my big wooden dough bowl.  I hope to be listing these this month on TDIPT.
* * * * *
I hope that all of you came through the storm ok.  I know that many areas had lots of flooding.  It was quite an ordeal for all in the path of Irene.
Prim Blessings,

Love the finishes!...we lost power for 24 hours and had to discard many of the refrigerated items...also lost a tree in the backyard...but feel very fortunate as many are still without electricity an entire week later!...we too had a power spike, from a previous outage, and it fried a main component in our stove which had to be replaced...so sorry about your sewing machine!

Oh what a terrible event that hurricane Irene ( the name means peace!!!) but it did not bring peace at all. I can imagine that it's a terrible loss that sewing machine. You are used to it. Of course there could be worse but it is a pity. Nevertheless your pincushions are beauties.
