A Few Fun Blogs and Irene

When I agreed to do the Christmas Fabric Swap on Paula's Crafty Boutique, I had no idea I would meet such a wonderful blogger.  Let me introduce Bethany from Sweet Bee Buzzings.  I'm so excited to do the swap with her and I really, really hope she likes what I give her.  She's being interviewed on Suzy's Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom this week.  Please stop by all three blogs and have a peek.  

Oh, and on a weather related note, Irene is making her way up the Atlantic to the East of us.  They are forecasting gusty winds and rain even though she's about 200 miles offshore.  It's good, we need the rain.

What can I say, I'm a weather junkie!!  LOL!

That Time of Year

Yep, that's Hurricane Irene.  We haven't had a big storm hit Florida in a couple of years and hopefully, this one will pass us by.  It's pretty darn big.  As my husband calls it "another one of those bigger than Florida type storms". 

On another note, I can't believe there was an earthquake in Virginia today!  My niece said things were shaking, falling off desks and cracks were forming on the walls.  Yikes!!!  Happily, everyone is ok and safe. 

It's been pretty quiet on the sewing front.  I hemmed some curtains for a friend at work on Sunday and worked on my Christmas Table Topper but that's about it.  It was nice to get back to sewing, though.  I've been so busy at work I was afraid I'd never feel like sewing again.  Thank goodness things are slowing down and I could spend most of the day in my sewing room. 

Ok, I'm off to see what else is going to happen today.  Have a great day guys!

Christmas Swap

I'm participating in a Christmas fabric swap from Paula's Crafty Boutique.  I'm excited.  I wasn't sure I wanted to do this because of the new work schedule and all, but it's not making any blocks, just swapping fabric.  Hey, I can do that!  Thanks for the invite Paula.

Irish Chain Quilt

I finally finished my friend's quilt.  I hope she likes it and better yet, I hope her daughter likes it.  The pattern is from Eleanor Burns Quilt In A Day Irish Chain book.  It was very easy and very quick to put together.

Work has calmed down a bit.  I was able to be home for dinner a couple of nights last week and had the whole weekend off.  We have one more big push coming in September when we cut the roster down to 53 but I'm starting to get the hang of everything and although it will be busy, it won't be anywhere near what it was a week ago.  Everyone assures me that it will never be that bad again.  Oky doky.

I'm off to sew something so everyone have a great weekend!
