If the forecast holds out, we could be buried in ice within the next 48 hours. Could it be true? I have to say, I am more enthusiastic about snow than ice. People drive waaayyyy too fast on ice thinking they can stop-which they can't. I have never quite understood why crashing into other cars is a better outcome than simply slowing down.
So, I have pre-school this afternoon. I fully expect there to be mayhem, which is usually par for the course before a big storm. Something goes haywire in their tiny brains and the next thing you know we have a line up for the "thinking carpet"-where you are sent to consider repenting for your sins...
As usual, I am excited about a day of writing, baking and quilting tomorrow. It's not like I don't do these things every other day of the week, but that wind and snow piling up outside takes it to a whole new level. I do hope that the power doesn't go out so I can't use the sewing machine, but I have binding to work on if it does.
One "odd" new preparation I have to make is for my eating plan. After bariatric surgery a person can't just "eat anything" out of the cupboard if the power goes out. Yesterday, I had to go to the store and "stock up" on some "emergency" survival food that I can eat and drink ( in case the pipes freeze, too) in the case there is no electricity to prepare anything on the stove. I know, weird. But, now I am stocked up and ready for anything!
I have had copy/paste issues from my computer to my web site (once again...) so as soon as that gets ironed out with my site host, chapter 12 will be up for you. I apologize, but hang in there with me!
Oh, one last thing. I went to Panera Bread on Sat afternoon and designed a block of the month to go with the series. I will need some "testers". Let me know if you are interested. I will supply the patterns, (and swear you to secrecy). You can just use your stash.
I need to know if the directions are clear and the whole thing comes together. It should, but I will let some of my fans give it a shot first for the "trial run".
Email me here if you'd like to take the challenge. It's a beginner-intermediate level quilt. I want everyone to be able to make it.
