Well March has decided to roar into our area. I live in that PINK zone. Lots of snow and some very bad winds. We probably will be buried and without power. National Grid has brought in a lot of trucks and county plows are ready - a State of Emergency has been called. It started snowing around 9pm EST and it is expected to last for 24 hrs.
In case we lose power, I ran my machine like no tomorrow all day Thursday. I needed seventy 4-patches to go with those thirty six 16-patches. It's so handy to have those barrels of scraps cut down to working sizes.
All done and pressed and ready for a little squaring up. Next I need fifty five 4.5" squares. I have pulled my barrel containing 5" cuts and left over charms. The rotary cutter may be my tool for the day.
I have a small piece that I am handquilting that might see some activity should the power go. And there is always the hexie projects. We have supplies and a generator; and I filled some jugs with water (drinking) as well as some pails (toilet).... oh, and the shovel is by the door ... ready.
Stay safe out there,
