Work, Shop, Work, Repeat
I hope all of you are well in your part of the world.
There was so much devastation in Oklahoma this week.
I am amazed at the destruction wind and rain can create.
One of my friends was in OK on business and posted photos of his 40 co-workers watching the storm on a laptop as they waited out the storm in a men's restroom. Thankfully he and his co-workers are just fine but I know that many are not.
My heart and prayers go out to each of them.
Please consider making a donation to the Red Cross
or your favorite charity to help the people of Moore, OK.
Here in my world it is time for working before a long weekend.
Why do deadlines sneak up on me like they do?!?
One down, many more to go.
I finished working on a project to teach how to make free form blocks
like the one in my Fractured Pi quilt.
Glad that is done.
I will need to rewrite the pattern from my notes
but the big work is done.
Sadly, another local quilt shop in my area is going out of business.
I thought I would never need to buy another yard of fabric after all my purchases when Whimsy Cottage went out of business last year, but I was wrong! Oh how wrong I was. It seemed that each project needed just one more fabric to pull it all together or I didn't have the right backing piece or. . . .always something and so I found myself at Cottonwood Fabrics but apparently not enough.
I did my best to help them out a bit with their close out sale.
I purchased quite a few fabrics to make produce bags for my Etsy shop.
My shop has been a bit low in products so I hope to fill it up again soon!
I did manage to cut a few of the fabrics
I purchased for produce and lingerie bags.
And lastly, here is my next deadline in the works:
I guess I should get off the computer and get to work before the family comes home and I decide to go play with them instead. I do hope to do some work with the family around the house this weekend; planting in the garden and putting together the guest room. I also hope to play and go see the new Star Trek movie.
What are you doing this weekend?
I'm linking to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Fridays.
Stop over and see what everyone else is up to!
