I've said it before and I'll say it again,
I LOVE MY ST LOUIS MODERN QUILT GUILD!!
We had another sew in this weekend, and it rocked the house!
Well, actually, the weather rocked the building.
Can you say 3" of rain in 2 hours?
Can you say marble to golfball size hail?
(some of the significant others were dealing with softball sized hail!)
Can you say tornado sirens going off?
Yep, never a dull moment with us!
But we didn't let Monther Nature crash this party.
We sewed from 9am to almost 10pm
(with a few dips out into the world beyond for food runs and hospital visits and various other things, and of course a trip to the basement to wait out the tornado)
and had a blast. Lots of neat projects going on,
quilts for friends and family and ourselves
in (literally in one case) all colors of the rainbow.
Hmmm, Mother Nature didn't provide us with one of those after her show, bummer.
Here's what I got done:
This is my next Zakka Style project, the sewing kit.
I'm pretty pleased with it.
I also got next week's project done, the pencil case.
Not too bad. I only had to turn it rightside out THREE times to get it right.
I thought I was going to hurt my brain trying to understand the directions,
but eventually I just gave up and did it without thinking.
I did do more, but thats all I'm going to show you for now.
Mostly because I need to take some pictures and to do that I need to get some new batteries for the camera.
