How can it be Monday again? It was a busy week with some stitching getting done but not as much as I would have liked. Friday we sang in a Veteran's Day program put on by our community. Following the program lunch was provided.
Afterwards, Pat and I made a beeline straight to the door as we needed to get down to our beach house to do some work/evaluation of the place. But remember reading about Nicole? Her remnants greeted us all the way down to the Outer Banks. Some rain was light and much was extremely heavy. (Thankfully no hail though.). However, we did get tornado warnings that buzzed loudly through both of our cell phones. Thirty miles later I figured out we were exactly where the warning as we were getting names of small towns, we just didn't realize we were going through the first small town. YIKES. Luckily we never saw a tornado and I figured out it was going north east and we were going south east. Do you know how hard it is to see possible tornado clouds when the road is lined with tall trees? Obviously we weren't specifically in the path. As we got closer to the Outer Banks we saw -
It was a huge double rainbow. We could actually see to the opposite side of it too. I snapped this through the front windshield so it isn't as good as it looked in person. By the time we got to our house the rain had gone.
One of the things we did was hit up the Rusty Crow where we had purchased the ornament kits for the grands. I asked a few questions about the finishing and, um, er, did a little shopping. The two Moda Grunge fabrics called my name. Unfortunately the one on the left is a beautiful celery green not the color shown in the picture.
All of the above is to explain why I didn't finish my goals list last week. So here's what I did get done. But I definitely made forward progress.
Make Nov BOM from Quilting Life - nope!
✅Finish quilting customer quilt - finished and returned
✅Remove papers from string blocks - started but lots still to do
✅Work on Halloween blocks - forward progress made
✅Trim melodic Mystery HSTs - some done but a lot more to do
And, here's this week's list. I need to start focusing more on the grands' ornaments. Christmas is only 5 weeks away. I'm trying to decide if I want to finish a top to give to granddaughter #3 for Christmas. I'll decide soon.
Finish trimming Melodic Mystery HST and work on November clue
Make Nov BOM from Quilting Life, and blocks for FCQ Equilter
Work on grands’ ornaments
Halloween quilt as time permits
