Well it's storm day and so far it's just gloomy, rainy and a little windy. Chris says that if we are going to lose power that it will be this evening. I never bother to look at the weather forecast. His degree is in meteorology so he watches and reads about weather all day long. I just wait for him to tell me what's going to happen. He has me properly prepared for this one. The gas fireplaces are ready, water is stored and I have hand projects set aside. Until the power goes out I will continue with my current projects and tasks.
Here's what's on my design wall. No, it's not mine....well, it is mine but I didn't make it. Wanda decided sell a few of her stash of quilt tops. I loved this one when she made it and decided to buy it. I'm going to finish it for a veteran's quilt. To do that it needs about 4" of border. Here are the 3 fabrics that I am currently considering. I like the batik on the left but Chris hates it. I also like both hand dyed options and am currently leaning toward the red on the bottom. Your options are welcome!
I got Kim's quilt loaded on Willie and started doing some of the stabilizing quilting. I want to get it all stabilized in case I need to take it off in the middle of the quilting for Mom to quilt one of her quilts. I haven't decided if I am going to share details of the quilting in process. It seems like there should be some surprise for Kim left in the quilt. I guess I'll let her tell me what she prefers.
While I still have power I'm heading off to use a lot of electricity. Things aren't going to be so bad here but I hope my friends in the Northeast will be OK. Hopefully everyone in the rest of you in the US and world are having a good creative day. Hop on over to Patchwork Times and see.
