Summer's End with an Unwelcomed Visit from Irene

My Summer is just about over, I'll be heading back to work tomorrow that is if Irene and her rains permit it.  So far it doesn't appear to be too awful bad, but the main part of the storm hasn't hit us yet. This summer will be a summer to remember, a tornado, which is pretty much unheard of here, an earthquake, and now a hurricane which we do get but not usually this far inland. We're worried about flood and falling trees and broken limbs. 
I have been doing some sewing some I can show one the others not quite yet.

My mother started this quilt years ago. She is unable to sew any more because of macular degeneration. The blocks she made, I just squared them up and put them together. Now I just have to decide whether I'm going to quilt it or get my sister, the long arm quilter, to do it. It's pretty don't ya think? Kind of country chic.

My Dozen Quilter's project for May and June, pillow case dress for Dress 4 Me International.

Walker bags, July's project.

September's project a block for a quilt for a breast cancer fund raiser.
My sister, my friend Annette and I started the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt yesterday. I made three blocks and will post those later. I also made another baby quilt and am in the process of quilting it and plan to post pictures soon. There are at least two more baby  quilts on the list of things to do.
