I usually try to write on Sundays, but the storm is really coming. Yes, Hurricane Ike is supposed to go right over my house early Saturday Morning. We should have sustained winds over 100 miles an hour for 5 to 8 hours. The power will go out and they have said it may be two weeks before it is back on. Here is a picture of the storm from Thursday.

New fabric was arriving today from Moda. Some of it was to finish up a quilt made with one of their new lines, BASIC GRAY. We actually will have two new designs for the line. There is also fabric for a design using Chez Moi. Unfortunately, because of the pending storm, the mail, ups, fedex and all those other companies decided not to make deliveries. I thought postmen came rain or shine. Hopefully next week. It is also difficult to sew without power. Janice will have to work overtime. The good news, Janice has two quilts ready to go on the long arm quilting machine this week. Here is a picture of my favorite, just the top. We promised sneak peaks.

As always, we would love to hear what you think. Have a great week. Check back often. We have lots of new projects.

Hope that you will remain safe during the hurricane! I am originally from FL where hurricanes are always in the forecast! Stock up on your batteries so that you can work on some hand piecing!

Love the preview quilt! Stay safe!

You gals are great. Keep the ideas coming. However that means I will need to do more fabric shopping. WHAT A SHAME!
