Before the power goes out....

Thinking positively here.  The winds have picked up, gusting now and then.  It's raining.... a lot.  I called Beth at Drexel and she said at one point the rain was falling horizontally.

Our schools are closed today and tomorrow.  Since I managed to get the bulk of the grading I needed to do finished on Saturday and taken back to school, today and tomorrow will be much needed fabric therapy days.

This is Bonnie Hunter's Jared Takes a Wife pattern.  She taught a class in Bedford, PA last July and my friend Belinda and I drove the hour west to see her and take part.  Some of you know that my daughter, Abby, loves owls.  I found this fabric last spring and of course bought it with no idea in mind as to what I was going to do with it.


I only have 11 blocks out of 30 made, they are coming slowly but surely.  I don't crank things out as fast as I used to.  Is that because I'm 50 and sitting there is hell on my back..... or because I just want to enjoy the time in my sewing room.  Slow and steady wins the race right?

Hugs to all in the path of the storm.  Sew while you can!!!

Very pretty blocks! Stay safe in this weather and enjoy that sewing time. We had 2 days of 60-70 mph winds last week but without any rain. It was brutal, so I can't imagine adding rain and snow to the mix.

OH MY! You want to hear that quilt name that just came to mind?

"Blue Skies in Green Bay"

Great "free day" sewing.

Love your Jared Takes a Wife - I made one too! We saw her back in June in Ohio. My top is done all but the last border. Your colors are great! :)
