Bad storms bother me, heavy rainfall bothers me – I guess I’m a wimp in some areas. I don’t get hysterical just nervous – I’m a nervous nelly and I admit it LOL. I have battened down the hatches as much as I can outside for the upcoming next day and a half of rainfall. I think the rain will start mainly this evening and then all day tomorrow. Everything in the yard has been put away as much as it can be so it doesn’t blow around in the rain, the chair cushions have been put up. I’m ready – I guess. I hope the worst of it misses us and I do wish we didn’t have to get the rain all at once. From the predications I would say the weatherman at the current time really do not have a clue how much rain we will get or what part of Arkansas will get the most rain – they seem to change it every couple of hours.
So in the meantime I will keep busy!! I have not posted photos of Joseph’s Coat for awhile – I have been working on it slowly – last week and this week I have gotten most of row 7 done but not quite – I will do more on it later today. The parts of row 7 that are complete – photos:
I have also been playing with the center block for Common Bride. Most of this is just laying on the cutting table for design purposes – I need to sew the feathered star part together and cut more pieces still. Some asked are there a lot of templates in this quilt – no just a couple. I mentioned when I started it that one of the templates was the wrong size – I was wrong – the template is just fine – I actually used the wrong one but it still worked out as I just needed to trim the block to square it up and it worked out just fine!
The very center block before the white sashing – I need to make 24 more of those! After I finish this center block then there is a border around it enlarging it with applique then a thin sashing and another round goes around it with the 24 stars, then more applique and round and round we go with the quilting growing and changing. I am glad though that I won’t have to make more feathered stars.
Well I am going to get more pieces cut out for this section of the quilt so I will have plenty to play with if the power goes out. I have my book lights (2) handy, flashlights, radio – on my way to get batteries for it now so it will work if we loose power. If you don’t hear from me for awhile it will be because we have lost Wi-Fi and power I’m on a hill so shouldn’t be much problem of flooding for us – it all runs downhill. It is all the trees that can be a problem in a storm for us.
I hope my readers in Louisiana are ok!!!!
