The hurricane was a 4 day inconvenience for my part of Florida. For others it was much more. We spent a few days without electricity or internet and a few hours picking up debris and reassembling windblown downspouts. My main consequences came from the 3 days of school lost and having to reschedule all of that. It has been busy! Technically we have a three day weekend with a "work from home" day on Monday. I am scheduled for a college event in Orlando though which should be fun. Kurt has been working on a bathroom remodel for what used to be Sydney's bathroom and will now be part of my quilting studio. I think we are scheduled to pick up the shower enclosure this morning and finalize tile choices.
Looking forward to some sewing time too of course. I did lots of binding during the storm, but having a machine and iron again will be a joy! I do remember digging into the brown bin to make one last Carpenter's Star block. Brown has been long overlooked. I am hoping to make some layout decisions. Sashing would make the sewing together easier with all those seams, but I kind of like the secondary patterns when the blocks come together. It will be fun trying out different ideas. Misterlinky is below. Please share your progress. The beginning of the end is near!
Florida was hit very hard, I'm glad the hurricane is gone, and that you seem to be ok. Enjoy some sewing machine time, and rest.
I'm so glad you made it through the hurricane without too much trouble! Your Carpenter's Star blocks are really beautiful - they do make a neat secondary design. A bathroom remodel for your studio sounds wonderful! Enjoy your weekend!
The carpenter wheel blocks look great. Can't wait to see if you go with a fancy sashing or not. Love the scrappliciousness of it. Glad things are getting back to normal. Enjjoy your event in Orlando.
Best of luck with the catch-up work, Angela. SEW glad that you and your family weathered the storm well!! Hurricane Ian and his aftermath still haunt so many Floridians.
So glad things weren't very damaging for you!!! I do hate being without power tho - so am with yoU!!! Love your blocks - they are so pretty together!
So glad normal is being restored! I think we underestimate how good normal really is. Great progress on your quilt, the blocks are lovely.
I’m so glad the hurricane wasn’t any worse for you. The Carpenter’s Star looks fantastic!
So glad you weathered the storm ok. Getting back to normal is a good thing. Glad you have the option of working from home on Monday.
Your Carpenter's Stars are beautiful!!
Glad to read your life is getting back to normal, Angela.
Your blocks look wonderful together, the secondary block looks great, looking forward to seeing what you decide.
Have a great week.
You always seem to be able to sew faster than the speed of lightning😂
your blocks are beautiful,I'm still catching up ,every yr I say I'm going to make one big block a month but always make myself crazy but in a good way😂
You are a busy lady! Your Carpenter Stars are beautiful. So glad the awful weather event is behind you. Let's hope that's the end of that for this season.
It’s good to hear you are safe after that horrendous hurricane. I’m really in love with your Carpenter Star blocks.
