My neighborhood was affected by the severe weather that hit the St. Louis area this weekend. I was fortunate that my family and I did not suffer damages to our homes. Most of us lost power from Friday evening through Sunday. As I look at the damages to the metropolitan area, we are very fortunate that no fatalities occurred. God definitely protected many, many people.
I did make one of my QM challenge blocks but will upload it later this week with additional blocks. Scrap quilting club was canceled Saturday due to the weather so no pictures this month. This is the start of our project due next month. I only need 35 starter blocks but sewed everything I had in a bag of strings given to me by Doris at our last quilt guild meeting. This is the result one person's trash being someone else treasure.
Since I had no power, a friend invited me over to sew and I quickly and graciously accepted. I quilted the Black, White and "Red" All Over quilt for my retiring supervisor. This will be her last week on the job. Not sure how I feel about the next batch of changes affecting my department in the next few months. Everyone hired or that I've worked with, having had close working relationships, have retired. I'm having a woo is me kind of moment right now. I just need look over the quilt to clip strings and check quilting tension before handing it over as the binding is also done.
