Earthquake - Midwestern style!!

At approximately 5:36 a.m., we felt the effects of a 5.2 magnitude earthquake that was centered near Salem IL. I was still asleep, but it sounded like a herd of raccoons playing chase on the roof! A few hours later, we had an aftershock from a second earthquake that registered 4.5. I still think we are having earthquakes in the midwest because Texaco shut down their oil drilling & refining operation in Lawrenceville IL. But, I am not a geologist, so who knows for sure!

Chicago Quilt Show

Pam, Mary & I getting ready to shop 'til we drop at the International Quilt Festival at the Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, IL. Lots of beautiful quilts, and lots of fantastic vendors who helped us strengthen the economy! haha
