Much progress made last night. No TV. Storming outside. Wow what an electrical storm. Everything unplugged. The electrical storm happening outside reminded me of when we used to go camping in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota and watching the Northern Lights at night. The sky was totally breathtaking. So is was last night but it was lightning instead of colorful lights. The similarity was the fluid motion of it and it was constant and quite beautiful. I spent some time sitting on my porch watching the display. Then headed inside when the rain started pelting. And it pelted. No hail though. Just large rain drops.
Retreated to my sewing room. I got the bottom half of the basket quilt pieced and prepped the basket handle pieces.
The kittah’s were just fine with the storm. The doggies not so much. My sewing room floor was an absolute obstacle course of doggie bodies. Now my sewing room is only 10 x 10 and is quite full of all my “stuff” so it gets a bit crowed when Katie, an Australian Sheppard and Salty, a Healer mix stretch out on the floor thinking they have hidden from the boogie man. They are seemingly comforted by being there hiding from the storm. So that works for me.
My Sewing Room:
My Dream Sewing Room. Big Sigh!
We work with what we have.
It’s Friday and I have big plans this weekend to see just how many basket blocks I can get put together. I have taken Monday the 27th as a vacation day so hopefully having that extra day to sew will see some productivity, unless I get distracted from something outside.
Still playing catch up. My UFO list is reminding me it needs to get completed. Not sure that can happen by December, but I’m giving it my best try. I’m also considering taking on Friends of Baltimore Quilt Pattern by Sue Garman, but that is probably going to have to wait until January 2017. Always dreaming of the next quilt.
Have a safe and enjoyable weekend.
