The past week was a crazy, busy one. There was no slowing down time until nightfall, so stitching was at a minimum. I was hoping for the new week to start off slower and pan out to be less demanding of my time. There hasn’t been a lot of time demanding going on, but a slow beginning was far from what happened.
Sunday started out like most any Sunday. I got up and got ready for church. It was a rainy morning, and severe weather was predicted in the afternoon. Some time between 5:00 PM and 6:30 PM a tornado twisted its way through our city. Thankfully it skipped to the north as it passed over I59 and did not affect our home. Still, my dogs and I sought shelter in a closet waiting for the beast to pass.
Many were not so fortunate and suffered great property destruction. There were some injuries requiring medical attention, but there were no deaths. Early warning is attributed to that good fortune…I personally thank God and give Him the glory for bringing us through a frightening time safely.
Last week I finished February’s work on the round robins in my possession. I’m working on my CQJP for this month.
Here are a few pictures…
This is from the “ALL THINGS PRETTY” round robin through World Wide Crazy Quilting. The little sweetie in the center of the block is Lee’s great-granddaughter.
This block is from the Blue/Green Color Study aka TAT (turquoise and Teal) hosted by Crazy Quilting for Newbies. It belongs to Angie who welcomes spider webs and spiders on her block.
This is the block I made for the Blue/Green Study:
Finally, here is a picture of my February CQJP before any work has been done on it. My theme for the year is monochromatic…I’m not using silk ribbon or anything else that may be damaged when washed because I plan to make a lap quilt when all twelve blocks are completed.
That about does it for this time…
Until next time…
