Yep, we had a little earthquake here in Central Virginia. 5.8 on the Richter scale. We live about an hour from the epicenter. But I was off shopping in Richmond. Nice ride and I really didn't think it was an earthquake. I thought a big train must have been going by close by. No, no train going by. Definitely an earthquake. Within about 15 minutes both of my kids had checked in with me.
Here's my earthquake damage. Yep, a plastic bag fell down from the shelf. And that's it. I didn't even see anything that moved on table tops or shelves. Much better than a couple of my neighbors who had a little breakage.
And now we're getting ready for hurricane Irene. We'll probably only get rain and we'll be in Maryland over the weekend.
After the quake, I kept shopping. And, YEAH! I've got a dress for the wedding and I love it! Only downside is I need black shoes. I checked out the two pairs of nice black shoes I own. Here's what I found. I have no idea what happened to them. I dropped them on the floor and stepped into them. They were stuck to the hardwood floor. The soles were completely rotted out. Yikes. The second pair had a broken strap and and didn't fit. So both of these pairs were dumped in the trash. Next week my "consultants" and I are going shoe shopping.
No quilting has been done yet this week. Today I'll be quilting the red and white baby quilt. I'm irritated with my backing. The quilt is 42 1/2" square. But the backing fabric is only 40" wide. ARGH! So today I will piece the back and then load it up on Ruthie. Pictures will be posted after I get it done. At some point I need to cut some binding for it and the last two quilts.
Now it is off to the Y so I can do my walk.
Happy Quilting All!
