Irma

Twinkle Stars is fresh off the frame.   I think that I will call her Irma.  I quilted it with some nice simple undulating U curves, and it went super quick.  It just got some purple binding and is sitting in the hand work basket waiting for the power to go out.  It is so very strange to sit here knowing that the hurricane is headed toward us while it is still calm and clear out there.  Sydney saw a movie with friends this afternoon and we are headed out for a quick dinner out before all the restaurants close.  After that, we will all snuggle up to wait it out.

I know that feeling! Hope Irma is seriously downgraded by the time she gets to you! My sis & her husband are in Winter Garden and staying, too.

Congrats on getting the quilting done SEW quickly!! Best of luck as you guys ride out the storm. We'll all be thinking of you. Hoping you scheduled the posting of your ScrapHappy LINK PARTY for tomorrow, but we'll try to be patient, if it is delayed. (Picture us drumming our fingers waiting to see if you are OK!)

You know that we will all be on pins and needles worrying about you and your family. Please be safe and let us know you're all OK when you can post again.

I live in East Texas and we have watched with horror as Harvey and now Irma have hit ! On our local weather news last night the meteorologist showed the size of Irma comparing it to the state of Texas....she was almost the size of our entire state !!! Stay dry and safe, please. I love your blog and will watch for good news from you.

We've been watching the Weather Channel a lot the last couple of days because we had some unexpected company who are supposed to be headed TO Florida - they're moving there but decided they'd better wait a few extra days and had nowhere else to go! The waiting to see what will happen has been so hard, as I'm sure you're experiencing. I hope it will pass you by! Stay safe, and enjoy some slow stitching on that beautiful quilt! I love those star blocks, and have to put them on my list!

Looks like you made the most of your waiting time. It's a bright and fun finish.
