Today I started on the repeat of the Aboriginal quilt I made a few months ago. I got the sashing and cornerstones put on all the blocks and got them all up on the design wall. I was able to get the bottom two rows sewn this evening.
I got a message from a friend today who used to run a long arm business that she wanted to buy my Ruffled Feathers quilt top. So we made a deal on a price, and it’s a done deal. She bought the backing along with it and will quilt it and keep it for herself.
I didn’t set out with the intention of selling it, but I’m happy that it worked out because I didn’t have any plans for this quilt.
Plus, quilts are starting to stack up in my sewing room!!!
We’ve had some severe wind warnings for today and Tuesday and they’re worried about forest fires. There’s an area around Mt. Hood where PGE was cutting off power so that any lines downed by the wind wouldn’t start a fire.
Most of the day here was pretty nice and then the wind picked up around 4:00 and the air got really smokey really fast. I can even smell it in the house tonight.
I flipped all of my big agility equipment over so it wouldn’t get caught by the winds. They were predicting gusts up to about 60 mph earlier today, but on the news tonight they said the biggest gusts would be around 39 mph.
We did get a few big gusts earlier today. It was enough to bring some small branches down in my back yard and enough to flip a heavy metal patio chair.
It seems pretty quiet outside now that it’s dark. I occasionally hear a pine cone hit the roof, but that’s about it. I’m guessing there will be quite a few boughs down around the neighborhood in the morning.
It was nice to have an extra day off today. Back to work tomorrow with a really busy day.
