    Krystyna be safe. I know from experience it can be scary when there is a storm coming your way. will be praying for it to turn out before it gets to your area.
    I love to collect roosters of any kind. I also love embroidery thread for my machine. My favorite color is purple and i am just a plain old country girl.lol

    Congratulations QuilterMomma! I guess practice really does make perfect.

    Krystyna, We are also praying that Sandy swings more out to sea before she hits the winter storm and becomes Frankenstorm
    Plans are already shaping up here for possible shutdowns due to winds, rain, and flooding late on Monday and into Tuesday. One of the hazards of coastal living. Please stay safe.

    Thanks all for the prayers. I am just praying that my house doesn't wash away. Unfortunately it looks like this will be the big one we've been fearing for years. It's all in God's hands.

    I received an adorable little purple quilt from my partner QuiltingMomof3 and have asked her to post pix as we are in the middle of storm preps and I have no idea where my camera is right now. I apologize sincerely for this as I know how much fun it is to share photos.

    On another note, QuiltingKrazy is going to step in as alternate hostess since the posting date is after the storm passes through and I'm assuming I will not have power. So a big old thank you for her assistance.

    Everyone else in the path of this monster, be safe!

    Feel the fear and do it anyway!

I'm going to be preoccupied with preparations to board up the house and possibly evacuate. Can anyone jump in as a back up hostess for this month? If it's as bad as they are thinking it might be, I'll be offline for a while.

    DebbyG asked me to post a pic of the DQ I sent to her earlier in the month (the one I forgot to take a picture of - Duh)
    She sent me a picture - so here it is. I called it "Witching Hour"

    Have heard about the big storm heading US way, please stay safe Krystyna.

    Eagleoneowl2u2 received my quilt a week ago and has probably been busy so hasn't posted a pic yet so I will put one up. She says she loved the quilt - it was a lot of fun to do and see the kangaroo is holding a little 'Tassie' basket ready for trick and treat !

    Lyn, I know she loved it because she PM'd me to say so and now that I see it, I know why! That little roo is too cute!
    Dragonfly Nana, another winner. What a happy little quilt!

    As for me, we are not going to evacuate this time. I took the dogs to the dog park earlier -- it's right next to the boat ramp on the bay side of the sandbar -- and watched a huge line of boaters pulling their craft onto trailers. My hubby and son got most of the windows boarded up, and although my neighbors probably think we're nuts, my son won't be around too much for a couple of days, so at least it's done. I've got batteries galore, oil lamps, games to play, radios, including a hand crank one, comfort food and non-dairy creamer because if I don't have my coffee there's gonna be trouble! I do think I am going to suffer severe internet and QB withdrawal! And I never got a new belt for my treadle so it'll be hand sewing or nothing. WAH! I got them to put the boards upstairs on the inside so we can get out. A good friend who is quite knowledgeable told me there is the possibility that the full moon, high tide and storm surge can bring the water right up to our roof ... and I'm just not in the mood to drown in my bed. Other than that, God is good all the time so I have to have faith and trust ... and maybe I'll call my doctor tomorrow to see if I can get some Xanax

    Krystyna, prayers are with you and yours this sounds like one scary time right now foryou. Remember a home is filled with things. things are replaceable for the most part. People are not. Stay as long as its safe but seriously leave well before its too late. You know we will be thinking about you the whole way through and wishing nothing but good things. too bad so much love couldnt build a shield around your home for you but maybe it canhelp keep your heart warmer.

    the quilts are super fun this month. From pretty little birds to scary spiders and ghosts.. so much variety and I never have seen so many different halloween fabrics in my life. If this was a store I would have had to have a bit of this a bit of that a whole bunch of THAT one.. its eye candy for all of us.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Lynnie25 - Another winner - love that little Roo with it's basket.
    morretll - Great job - such an inviting pumpkin patch.

    Krystyna - If you are safe and need to use your treadle - two shoe stings tied together make an acceptable substitute for the belt - ask me how I know! LOL

    Rain and winds from Sandy have started here. Yard stuff is in the garage, leaves are bagged, generator has gas and extra cans are full, grill has gas and we stocked up on necessaries. Like Krystyna - no coffee makes me very hard to be around so there is plenty in the house.

    Paula, be safe! Lucky you with a generator. We keep saying we need to get one but never get around to it. Got lots of propane but just discovered there is something wrong with the grill. But we do have a gas stove ... good for making coffee and heating up all the beef stew, chicken cacciatore and other goodies I canned last year! We don't eat meat on Fridays so yesterday we had a feast -- which kind of defeats the purpose -- all the jumbo shrimp and wild salmon I got on sale. Figured we might as well eat what's in the freezer before the power goes out. Pulling out all the oil lamps and flashlights and radios and board games ... and we're good to go. Just need an ark. Kicking myself that I gave away our life vests when we sold our boats.
