Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. All we can do is wait and see now.
Yes.............the snowmen are all done - just have to iron on some fusible to keep all the stitches in tact so that quilting will be easier. Will try and take a group shot of these guys tomorrow in daylight. Happy me.......and now I can think about packing it all up next week for our trip south for the winter.
My brothers house is in Port St Joe and I just saw a video it is just not good. He won’t be able to get there the roads are washed out from an 8’ storm surge and 115 mph winds. It took him 6 hrs to get to his house in Tallahassee from all the trees down.
There are some towns that are so displaced. It looked like the mess that Catrina left behind. What a mess! I feel for these people.
Oh the devastation is unbelievable. Cannot imagine how difficult it will be for all those people. I just hope the folks that stayed behind are all okay.
On a better note: I finished my floor tonight! I’m so relieved. My kitchen is functioning great working space. I’m organizing n purging unwanted/useless items. My boys will get cantilever this weekend then I might have working lights over my work space. My island is 5’ x 12’ and one of my quilting friends stopped in and said that will be a great space for my quilts to layout! I never thought of that it would be! Not sure I will.
You will have to take a picture. My island is small but I use it for cutting since I don’t have a dedicated sewing room.
The pictures just don’t do show how large it really is. It sure is nice and open and a perfect space now. My girlfriend came over and fell in love with it. She has a huge kitchen but just loves mine.
Lisa, add me to the list of those who love your kitchen. I don’t envy you what it cost you in hours, sweat and tears, but it is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing on mqp.
Awe thanks Jean. It is a great space so worth the effort. Now I get the final grout on floor get floor boards on n furniture put where it’s suppose to go! I emptied about 10 boxes some of the dishes are waiting for my floating shelves. to
Yay. I’m so happy for you :)
