    I hope all my quilting friends in Sandy's path stay safe and warm. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    we'll be hit by sandy, no doubt, but we are not in a low-lying area. a power outage may work out for this swap-- it would give me a chance to pull fabs and do some cutting for blocks. my treadle has been ignored for the last 50+ yrs so don't expect to be able to use it. will finish fmqing my dgd's quilt, my avatar, and then i can sit and sew binding on (in the dark, lol). it's only going to be dark at night so i still have plenty of time to do things in the light. i hope everyone closer to the shore will heed the warnings and get out of dodge! what's the worst that can happen... that you made a trip for nothing? don't forget to take your pets! we are filling the bathtub so there will be plenty of water available. the flashlights have new batteries, the candles and lighters are out at the ready, and with any luck we won't need any of this stuff! i'm optimistically expect the storm to take a hard right and fizzle out ! we can continue to hope and pray!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    We are all set for Sandy out here in the woods. DH actually has an outlet for my sewing machine hooked up to our generator! His job requires him to be on duty during storms, and I have charge of the homefront and animals. Boy, those chickens were not happy when the hurricane shutters went up on their coop and I didn't let them free range. Now I can get caught up on some UFO's myself. Everyone be safe, please, my prayers are for all on the East Coast.
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I heard some places in Va may get up to 2 ft of snow-blizzard conditions-and it's not even Halloween! We're supposed to get heavy rain and wind monday night and tuesday. sounds like it is going to make things rough for a lot of people. Be safe

    You never know. Mainly the cord tends to have dried out and broken. I think you can try a bungee cord or nylons. Praying it won't come to it. So sorry for everyone.

    To all of our Diamond East Coast Swappers, I'm thinking and praying for y'all. PLEASE "hunker" down and be SAFE!!! Know that we will be here when things pass and if you need a place to evacuate to, let me know. This quilt sister in Houston will be waiting if y'all need to come this way!

    Hugs and prayers!

    Fraew I still love you! (where did she put that quilt, looking under cushions, nope not there) oh yes we are still friends

    Nancia I will do a happy dance for you and anyone who wants one ONE TWO THREE (yosemitesa this is your clue get out here NOW) uh one sec folks music delay.. its a One and a Two and.. da da da da daaaa diddellididdle da de.. isnt she wonderful folks? tap dancing here way across America in her little cheerleader skirt is Yosemitesa filling in for the famous brat.

    I agree get out and worst case you take a vacation. someone posted in dollquilt swaps that two shoelaces work in place of a belt on the old treadle machines (she said trust me I know so she must know right?) Krystyna who lives on a sandbar is staying to ride it out in NY. she runs the dq swaps. wow is all I can say to that.

    I received this lovely block from Nannakathy55 (hope I got that right) and thought i would share it with you today once again no I need this one so its not up for grabs I am getting such a great equality in blocks, some black yellow, some blue yellow some with red its all going to be absolutely perfect! tada! I could use more red if you havent made a block yet

    Seek higher ground. although that may not be possible considering that if you go higher you are in the mountains and they have trees and trees are falling or you will encounter snow. Prayers with all of you. Watching the weather station to keep me posted. I feel bad as I sit in So. CAl with lo 80 temps.

    I got a lovely grown up block from 1000 projects aka Claire. thank you so much.

    Urgodschild2 I do feel bad feeling so good in this nice weather. Front door wide open still its after 5:30 p.m. and its not cold yet. I wore capris all day long and mostly barefoot. I am sorry for those who are facing such a terrible storm. I worry winter is slower coming here. they said it would be worse than the one two years ago so we will see. right now I see trees just beginning to turn down the hill up here we dont see much in the pines. We have one dogwood in the center of the park and it turning slightly yellow right now.

    I had a wonderfully slightly productive day, went pine cone collecting for Christmas decorations (a lot harder to get in the snow lol) and made soup, cut fabric for the fq exchange and am working on a table runner/wall quilt? for my little girl. I will get the top done tonight after I finish making dinner oh oh and snuck in a three hour nap. Now that was good. Wishing all of you and your loved ones well as you are tackling this crazy storm that is hitting you so hard.

    jaba that block could be called swimming in blueberries! its very happy colored I think.

    NOW: Krystyna of the DQ swaps lives on a sandbar in NY. She and her family elected to stay through the storm, they have boarded up their windows and battened down their hatches. Unfortunately there is now water on the front room floor and rising. Please keep them in your prayers and hope that that is the worst that happens for them. I am unsure if they are able to leave now or not someone who can reach Krystyna is posting further updates in the dq members swaps folders. She asked us to post for extra prayers and also if anyone here knows her they can also keep them in their prayers and look for further updates there.

    TwinRiversFarm, your block will be on it's way tomorrow, I'm sorry, I couldn't get all my points matched up as much as I wanted to.

    Jaba, your fabric screams civil war repo to me and I have several CW fabrics I'd like to use with it. It looks like it will go with the ones you already have received. Is that OK with you?

    Whatever looks good to you I'm sure will be just fine. The only thing I asked was not to use red. I'm sure you talking about the paisley type for the extra swap we did in rubies, since you got tomatoes for diamonds group.
