Just a quickie post before the heavy snow arrives in Virginia later this evening and possibly wipes out our power.
Tom is already scheduled to spend the night away from home so he can quickly get to work tomorrow to begin power restoration...300 workers from other areas are arriving to help here.
I hope you are faring well where you are!
This past Saturday I attended quilting class...our next to last block in this session! To be honest, I've barely kept up with the homework each month...so I've only completed each block that was required--nothing extra...which is great! I'm not complaining. Yay for completed homework!
Other ladies, however, have worked ahead (or should I say they've used good sense all along and sewed the sashing and connector blocks in addition to their monthly blocks). Here's an example of what this lady has completed: And some folks are using the blue colorway. This partially finished quilt is quite striking also: After class is over, we're given just enough fabric for the next block. Cutting must be done carefully because a mistake could be costly! Here's the fabric after I've washed and ironed the pieces that will be in this next block: And...here's my block! All done! I finished it just three days after class! Yay for completed homework!! Now this block is all ready for the last class in March: After returning home from class on Saturday, I began preparing the meal for our soon-arriving overnight guests. We had a very enjoyable time with friends whom we hadn't seen in quite awhile:Thank you, Hynes family, for coming to the Valley and visiting us!
