    Needless to say, I had trouble getting to sleep last night. Good news for my hand piecing - eight more 3.5 inch seams to go.......
    Oh my, this is very close to my husband's aunt and cousins. I will get him to check up on them.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    This is getting really old. We have been in NW Arkansas only two months and we have already had THREE tornado warnings (not watches warning, meaning a tornado on the ground in the area.) No damage yet. We can pack the valuables and food/water into the closet in under three minutes flat. Also room for both of us in the closet. (Not as romantic as it sounds)
    Stash Treasure Acquisitions Beyond Life Expectancy. My stash keeps me STABLE, oh yeah.... and dark chocolate.

    Yeah, one of my 'have to haves' for a house in Kansas is a basement with a safe room. Mine is under the front porch - all concrete and stone masonry, including the top. Driving to work and seeing the damage first hand this morning was surreal.

    When my father-in-law's house went up for sale last year, I thought it would sell faster as it had a basement. Apparently a lot of people feel they don't need it. I would think this is a MUsT when you live in tornado alley. My DH remembers as a kid, when the sirens blew, all the neighbours would come to their house, as it was one of few on the street that had a basement.

    I am making my first quilt with blocks set on point. Each pieced block sits next to a plain white one. I was 3/4 of the way done. Today I sat back admiring my work when I noticed a BIG FAT MISTAKE!! I was trying to decide if I should add a thin plain white border around the edge so the points on the pieced blocks don't get covered up with the binding. Then I noticed that on 2 sides there already is a white square at the edge, but on the other 2 sides is a pieced block at the edge. I read the pattern over 4 times before starting and nowhere did it say start and end each row with a plain white square. Are you supposed to just know this? I was so careful (I thought) putting it together. Time for the old seam ripper- grrr!! I guess on a positive note I have plenty of white fabric to cut the extra pieces I need and at least I discovered this before I started quilting it. I am just so annoyed at myself for not seeing this sooner.
