Anna is home from college this week and we have a family wedding coming up in North Carolina.  The hurricane was far away from our side of the state and we never saw more than a windy day out of it. It is horrible to see the devastation that it has caused.

Love all your Squared Away blocks! I'm thinking of an on point setting for mine. But I've not had all the blocks up on the design wall as yet, so we'll see when I get these last three done.
