Trying to get back to "normal" after IKE!

I've been just trying to get back to some sort of "normal" since IKE hit. We were so very lucky to not receive too much damage from the hurricane that caused so much devastation. We lost about a dozen shingles off the roof so we have the insurance adjuster coming to inspect that. Our beautiful weeping willow tree was just about shredded on half of it, we still haven't decided if we are going to take it completely out or see if it will come back. And of course like so many others, we lost everything that was in our fridge and deep freeze. We were w/o electricity for 4 1/2 days, again very lucky as some around us are still w/o it!!

I've tried to do a few little sewing projects when I have had just a little bit of time. I had made my friend the camera strap that I posted about earlier and needed to mail that to her so I went ahead and made a dog collar for her dog and a little zip pouch and key fob for her mom(my friend too!!). For the zipper pouch and fob I used fabrics that we had picked out for me to make a purse for her. Her birthday was recently so I thought this was a good gift for her and for her to see how the fabrics looked in person together. I also sent a couple card cases to put her business cards in for her new paper crafting business.
