Goodness we have had some rain!
Much needed an all soaked in too!
From late last Sunday up till 7AM today, Friday , we have had close to 12 inches!
Had winds that did a bit of damage but nothing terrible at least out here.
Others had a lot more to deal with.
Areas in NC got close to 20 inches or more!
It did make for not being online with Hughes.net as the heavy rain and clouds blocked the satellite.
So did not get to visit many blogs, comment or reply to comments or do a post on this one!!
I will try to catch up best I can.
Oh well not complaining as we desperately needed this rain!!
Just glad no tornadoes popped up in our neck of the woods when the watches and warnings were up!
So on Monday I had a late delivery by my UPS Fella!!!
It came missing the value die, mat and pick but I called and they will be shipped when back in stock! Very nice folks out there in Nebraska!
Thanks again to Tonya for hosting her giveaway in which I won my GO!
My friend Alice and I had already used our coupons to purchase 2 dies from our LQS.
The 2" strip cutter and the Rose of Sharon die.
Yes this GO! will have two Moms!;-)
Alice came Wed and we played all day. Did loads and loads of 2" strips.
Need these for a Bonnie Hunter Workshop on Oct 8th we are taking together.
Plus this die will go great for all kinds of quilt blocks, sashes, borders , etc.
We have decided to get as many of the strip cutters as we can.
They will work for so many blocks .
If you lay the fabric on just right you can get biased strips for binding as well!
Then we played with the Rose of Sharon some.
This one will come in handy for many a Baltimore style block.
Just have to fiddle with the 'scraps' to get the colors you want in the right places.
Also to remember to add the backing adhesive ...;-)
We were so excited we forgot on some we put through! Hahaha!
I do machine applique and use Heat n Bond Lite.
We had a really fun day!!!
Make sure you go check out the new baby GO! that is now available from Accuquilt !
So all in all been a good week here.
Now today temps are very cool and Fall like.
Weekend is to be cool and sunny! YES!!!
Wishing all a wonderful weekend doing whatever makes ya happy!!!
