Ice Storm Busy

That's what I've named my newest finished flimsy. I spent all morning sewing the sashings, cornerstones, and borders onto this 2006 BOM from one of our LQSs. I pieced the back and made the binding so it's all ready for the quilter (not me). Here it is, before quilting. It measures about 62 inches by 78 inches.

Yes, we've got another ice storm cookin'! It started around midnight last night with rain and sleet and they have us on a winter storm watch till 6: 00 p.m. tomorrow nite. It's expected we will have a total of 1/2" to 1 inch of ice before this one is over. Fortunately, since it's rain and sleet, it's not sticking to power lines so we aren't looking at losing power. The director called us all today to let us know that the library will be closed today...not sure if we will be closed tomorrow (I certainly hope so). I put the day to good use so far, sewing the above quilt together, vacuuming the studio, and then some knitting. Maybe I'll even make dinner tonight for John. Most folks know that John does all the cooking around here. He's done it for almost the entire 35 years we've been married. I do the cooking for the big events, he does the everyday cooking. But sometimes I surprise him with dinner when I've spent the day at home and he's been out earning the big bucks! I think today will be one of those days. Tuna casserole with a salad and rolls. Yep, he will like that! I'm off to the kitchen. More later.

Ah, sounds like the perfect day at home! A beautiful quilt, a reason to stay inside, and a sweetie pie to cook for.

That quilt is AMAZING. What an accomplishment! It's gorgeous! Wow!

very pretty quilt~I like
My parents lived in Liberty Mo. for 18 mos. and still talk about the ice storms. The pix are amazing. They live in eastern Idaho. I love tuna casserole, but I'm the only one in the family that does, so when I make one, I get it all to myself. It only takes me about 3 days....:)
