An Orange Finish with a Blue Binding...

Tonight amid angst, I finished my friend's 70th birthday quilt.
Ok..Ok..It was a June birthday...but September is pretty close.
Now, I cannot send it...because Irma is paying a visit.
I used the blue binding..not so bad, I think.
Thank you Terri for the quilting!!!

 The grands are getting older.
They banded against poor Grandma.
They insisted that Granddaddy's old hospital room was now a bonus room
Definition of a bonus room???
A messy room with all their stuff and chairs and TV and computer..
Aren't I lucky that they let me keep my design wall and fabric in there!!
They may be right...after all 4 of us are living here.
 The O'Quilt family really, really loves their clutter and messπŸ™ˆ
Tonight I accomplished 50% of my goals for the weekend.
Kids visiting sewing..

My girl has just taken a 10 hour flight from Portland to Tokyo.
Then transiting to a 7 hour flight to Singapore. to be with her man who is working there for a month.
She will spend two weeks with him..πŸ’˜πŸ’˜
I am just saying....
πŸ’™πŸ’šIt is only 5 hours to Charlotte to be with Mommy

Then there is Irma and friends..
Gives me such anxiety
I had better get with the serenity prayer!!
I am as ready as I can be.
.It will probably be rain and winds when/ if it comes here.
Will just have to wait and see.

Another Grief Post....same age stuff..

I love your birthday gift quilt with the blue binding! Glad you are healed enough to sew! I'm so hoping power stays on during the storm? If she arrives. All I want to do is sew, now that I've found my machine amongst the clutter of my studio. I think I'm a candidate for "Hoarders"!
See you soon. xoxo

I love the "bonus room" (years ago, when we were house hunting, the thing was "flex rooms").
I'm eager to hear how you & yours are after this storm!
Be safe, be well. xxxxx
