Working from home and bad weather
I live in southwestern Ohio and last night we a had bout of bad weather. The tornado siren was going off and instructing us to go to the lowest floor, interior room away from windows. We know the drill and are very mindful of the situation after what happened in Joplin. I am now working from home and seem to be working in the smallest safe soft in my house. This is my home office. It is very tiny and also very safe. The storm passed over my neighborhood without much damage and we had power all night!
I have been sewing and finishing stuff. It is quite amazing. I have started working on a baby quilt for sister who is expecting in June. I had 10 leftover blocks from another baby quilt and a good bit of extra fabric. I constructed 20 more blocks and will put it together as a generous 45 x 60 inch quilt. I found some awesome striped fabric on the clearance rack at JoAnn's that I will use for the back. Of course, there are no pictures of this work in progress at this point. The blocks and backing are upstairs and I am in the basement. Pictures will follow.
