Boy, do I love power


Hello Fellow Stitchers,
Last week left many of us with challenges not expected. Tuesday morning I wondered if the rain would ever stop? How high would the water get?  It got really high. Tuesday afternoon I wondered how much snow would we get and would it stick? It did.   And then late Tuesday evening would we get our power back?    Crazy. Thursday just shortly after being told it could be another 24 - 48 hours, power was restored.

I did fine while I was home, I am prepared for these such events,  but trying to get things done in the shop was awful. I was starting to wonder how much I could stitch by turning the wheel on my machine and wishing I had a treadle machine that works.
We still have the Kansas Trouble trunk show at the shop. Stop in soon to see her great items.

Speaking of Lynne of Kansas trouble quilters, have you checked her blog lately? Lynne is giving away a big collection of fabric this week.

We'll be done by April.   A Door prize each month. Remember to bring your show and tell.
Did you know we moved the longarm back to the shop. I told you thing are changing and that is one thing that was changed as soon as we got home from Houston . Love having my machine in the shop.
Hope to see you soon. We have lots of things to share with you.
Happy Stitching and Have a Merry Christmas
