    I was up and out very early on Saturday to get all my errands done before the rain started here in Boston. I stopped by my LQS to sign up for some classes and buy some fabric. My daughter called (she is a Senior at VCU) while I was in the store and everyone was chatting and laughing. She said "Where are you?" and I replied at the quilt shop. Her response - "Not even a hurricane will keep you away from the quilt shop!!!"

    I shared her response with everyone there and one of the owners could not stop laughing. It was very funny - and kind of true! Meghan

    our power went out for 2-3 hours and I used the time to catch on some handquilting I am doing for a QB member. Fortunately it was during daylight hours. I am not so good at quilting by candlelight.
