    Default Stormy weather Wed, Oct 27


    Good Morning!
    Kind of soggy here and I know in most of sister's areas as well. And snow?! Yikes. I spoke with my cousin in Wisconsin yesterday and wind was blowing to beat the band and 60 degrees. We are unseasonably warm in my area, some really bad storms overnight. We didn't sleep well with all the thunder - good news, no rain in the basement. Whew! We were concerned as we weren't sure if we fixed the problem or not. Still have our fingers crossed. Hope everyone is safe, snug and dry.

    I am hoping that the internet service holds up as I have been trying for quite a while to get online. It is off and on, I am certain due to the weather.

    I worked yesterday on a table topper for my DD with a Christmas tree on it, similiar to what Jenny did on a tut. I didn't have enough strips of Christmas fabric or any that could pass as a Christmas tree, but I did have a small piece that I cut out and it looks sort of like it was strip pieced. Worked it up and still need to finish. I would like to do another one sometime. It was fun to do.

    I am like Jenny, I make do with what I have. Once I get 'er done, I will post a pic.
    As I am working on it, I am seeing all sorts of ideas in my head. Once again, the creative juices get flowing while working through.

    Trish, brave woman! My fingers won't do beading at all! Let's not even discuss the bifocal thing, lol. Laughing with tears is my specialty.

    Jan, hope the work folks show up. Wouldn't you love to charge them for the waiting time????

    Cathy, I wish you well in finishing up that costume.

    Hoping that everyone is planning on a great day.
    Blessings to all,
    Blondie

    Good morning everyone!

    Today is my husband's birthday. It's hard to believe he is now 50 years old. (I'm a wee bit older and he have given me the devil, well you know what they say about paybacks! LOL) Will be making an apple pie today (instead of a birthday cake) as that is his favorite.

    Have meetings most of the day, so won't be able to get back on. Hope everyone has a blessed day. Keeping those that are in severe weather zones in my prayers. Keep dry and keep safe.

    Off to get ready for work.

    Good morning all. Yes I am still waiting for the repair guy. He better be here by 10am or they will hear from my husband and they won't like it if they do. Joe has the gift of telling people off without being uncouth. I don't have that gift. It takes me longer to get upset but he is much better at "telling one Off" and most people respond well to him. I wish I could do that.
    I'll be working on my applique orange peel quilt today. I had to remove my sewing machine from the room where they are going to work. Along with everything else that could be in their way. Like birds, fabric, machine, etc. What a mess. This better be the last time. grrr
    Hope everyone has a good creative day. Love to all, Jan.
    P.S. We got some of your storms last night. Thank goodness they weren't as bad as what everyone else had to deal with. They were pretty much calmer than when they visited you guys. Just noisy and wet. LOL

    Morning all! We had a scarce last night as we were going to bed. After all the lights were out and we just laid down and pulled the covers up, we heard a noise and the dogs barked and ran from the room! I jumped up and said "What was that?" Hubby said it sounded like a ball hit the floor. Well I looked all around in the other rooms and didn't see anything even looked out the window. I asked hubby where did it sound like it came from and he said in the hallway. I went to the hall and turned on the light. Down the hall in the kitchen was an apple on the floor. What made it fall to the floor we don't know. Glad that was all it was though. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Gotta go shopping this morning ,see ya later, sweet potatars. Saundra PS working on table runner from moda site with charm pack "Summer's End" Pics. later.

    May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door! God bless the USA!

    Hi all! We had the storms here, not the worst of them, thank you Lord! I was with Ace and the tornado sirens went off at least 12 times! I woke him up from his nap early, so if I needed to grab him quick and run for the basement he was close at hand! He is such an angel! Was happy as could be,even with waking him up. We have high wind warnings again today, but so far not storm warnings. Glad to hear everybody (so far) has weathered the storms well.
    Suzi, sorry to hear of the damage from the limb to your porch, hope the repairs are quick and easy!
    Saundra, doesn't it make you go hmmmm.....when something like that happens? We have toothpicks that appear, not just at my house but all of the family....my Grandma always used them, so we think it's her way of letting us know she is still with us! I am excited to see the pics of your project and I hope you find just what you need shopping today.
    I am getting a few projects ready to stitch out tomorrow, getting all of the prep work done so I can just get to it in the morning.
    Happy Birthday to your hubby, NM Lady!!
    Blondie, your tree project sounds wonderful. I love that tute Jenny did with the table runners and watch it all of the time! They are on my 'to do list' too.
    Hope everybody has a great day!
