Like so many areas, the storm has hit our area - BUT we are lucky that is just rain. Lots of rain, which scares this area that has been so devistated with flooding. Yes, we are high on the hillside, but we do worry about neighbors and community. I am spending these days just flitting from one project to another.
The binding did get done, but I so want to get outside photos of this huge quilt - So playing with the next step of the Jelly Roll Mystery. Normally I don't mind mindlessly chain piecing, but I have this need to change it up constantly - restless.
Always a distraction to pull the scrap bin - but my SIL and I have been throwing our left overs from projects into one of my cute, colorful mini washtubs. So I decided to play in that making little bags. Need to find my snaps and pull the button boxes out.
And yeah - this awaited roll arrived during the heaviest of rains. Looks like I will be sandwiching up some quilts and maybe getting some more finishes. But I have some fun planned for the weekend.......
I will be going up the road to the neighboring town to work on a community project at the library Community Crazy Quilt Project . And do some stitching under the eye and help of BettyPillsbury, reknown fiber artist and fellow Quilt Guild member. You can click on both links to read about the original quilt, the project and about Betty (and drool over her work-watch the slide show).
Hope everyone is safe and weathers out this storm,
