Stashbusting and OMG

Here we are 11 days into September and I am just getting around to posting my statistics.  And, yes, they were good! 

Fabric In Month
Fabric In Year
Fabric Out Month
Fabric Out Year
Total In or Out Year

The good news is I'm back over 20 yards out for the year.  September won't be great but I have all sorts of hope that October will be great.  We'll see how it goes. 

I bet you are thinking the one monthly goal.  Nope I'm talking about this picture:

The good news for us is we aren't in the direct path. The bad news is our beach house is right about where the "m" in 2 p.m. Fri is.  Hopefully it will be ok.  And then the follow up bad news is: 
Map from NOAA.
The beach house will be getting lots of rain.  Hopefully, here in Northern Virginia we'll get 4 to 6" range.  And, just to add a touch of irony -- I think there are something like 3 or 4 disturbances in the Atlantic ocean that may be developing into tropical storms and then hurricanes. Oops, one is actually already a hurricane. Oh boy! 

I'm taking a break from OMG, the monthly goal.  I didn't make up my mind as to what to work on and the linky party closed.  Oh well. 

I'm off to read and keep all my electronic devices fully charged.  Tomorrow I'll be picking up cardboard boxes that are stored in the unfinished basement and placed on something.  Just in case.  

My plan is start sewing and sew as long as I can.  Then I'll start cutting projects for retreat.  Hopefully we won't lose our electricity but who knows. At least I have a plan. 

Stay safe everyone who is waiting for Florence.  

I'm linking with  Free Motion by the River and Midweek Makers. (I'll link with Susan's Midweek Makers when it goes live and I remember to do it!) 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. OMG, indeed! Double whammy. I hope you fare well in both locations.

  2. Yikes! I can't imagine the anxiety level - I hope all will be well.

  3. Hi, Bonnie. You and Pat have been on my mind lately and even more so with this terrible hurricane heading your way. I hope you and your homes weather it safely, without damage.

  4. Here's hoping all goes well for your property. Please let us know how it fares!

  5. Hope you stay safe. My SIL is in Rocky Point NC and my cousins live on Virginia Beach. We are keeping tabs on all.

  6. Stay safe and dry! It definitely doesn't look like a good weekend in your part of the country.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
