Last two weeks have been crazy busy. Had a great time visiting friends in Tahoe. Window treatments were completed when I returned. Guild meeting last night. My quilting classes and the Block of the Month are posted on Cathy's Sew and Vac's website. http://www.cathyssewandvac.com/ Today I quilted the beginning quilting class quilt and it's ready for binding. The BOM top is hanging up at the store, there is a picture of it on the website. New is a quilt I made using embroidered blocks made by the Embroidery Club at Cathy's Sew and Vac. I did an alternate square in a square block and set them in a pieced inner border that makes up a sawtooth/Ohio star pattern design. Also ready to be quilted. This quilt will be raffled as a fund-raiser. The owners at Cathy's Sew and Vac are organizing this to raise the funds to put up a fallen soldier memorial for a Chico soldier, Arron Ray Clark, killed in action.
Glad to hear from family and friends on the East Coast are OK. My cousin Iteke who lives in upstate New York, she and her family are fine. They had a wedding that weekend and she had several house guests. They are always prepared and have a generator. Donna in PA was not effected. Daniel and Georgine were in Vermont and had water cut off when a bridge was washed out and the main water line was cut. They were able to make their way back to New Jersey and are safe in their condo there. They will be headed back to Texas after the holiday. Very happy to see Aunt Reen is doing well after surgery, no major damage from Irene and stitching some beautiful red work blocks.
Had some issues come up with my mom that are in the process of being resolved.
Simply too much for this tiered old soul
What is making me really grumpy... I am not working on either of the BOWs. I keep thinking, this will be the weekend I can work on MY quilts... but it looks more like it will be one more weekend. A carrot at the end of a stick!!!
