Progress on the Paperweights has been good and steady. Are you tired of me talking about it yet? Here is what it looks like now.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch:
It looks like Hurricane Isaac is heading straight for us, due to hit on Wednesday at 7 am.. It was 20 years ago that Andrew hit us killing 8 people and toppling trees and power lines all ove Baton Rough. We lost the two trees in the fron of our house.
And 7 Years ago this week, Katrina hit east of New Orleans. We just hat minor tree damage here, but the hurricane that followed, Rita, hit Baton Rouge way harder and 2 people lost their lives whe trees fell on their homes, one in our neighbiorhood. We were out of electricity for two weeks.
I finished Dan's BQ Quilt and put the binding on but didn't sew it down yet. Handwork for the night in front of the TV.
I need to put the binding on The Dogs and sew it down by hand during TV time.
I also have joined two of the blog hops. One is Leafs Me Happy because I love leaves in quilts and the other is, of course, Wicked! That one is Halloween, how could I pass that up when I know that Charlene will DEFINITELY be there too!
Click on the buttons on the side to see how each works and I will be helping you with info as we go along. If I don't forget! LOL.
Several people have asked about the name Paperweights. I think the designer, Pam Dinndorf, must have thought it looked like those glass paperweights. I think she is right!
I am heading to a retreat for the weekend, four days this time. So I should have some nice stuff done again and some yardage used for next week. Or maybe the week after!
