A little excitement over breakfast

Rains and winds and floods, oh my! The noisy weather, a broken sump pump, and uncertainty about flight cancellations for a trip my husband started this morning kept us from getting very much sleep last night. When I finally sat down to breakfast, I started browsing through the recent issue of Quiltmaker and saw my blog mentioned! I was so tired, I thought I somehow had misunderstood, but no, there it was. It's not this blog that was mentioned, but a blog I keep to showcase my guild's donations to Project Linus. How exciting! If you have the magazine, check out page 22.

If you are interested in making quilts for Project Linus, please take a look at our Hearts for Linus blog. You can get lots of ideas by browsing through the quilts. Also scroll down the sidebar and you'll see links to some easy patterns available for free on the web.

Things are back to normal, at least temporarily. Our internet connection was restored about an hour ago (we had none for about 15 hours), we have a new sump pump, and miraculously my husband's flight was not canceled. But it's clouding up again and they say more bad weather will be arriving soon. I'm not going anywhere, I'll just stay home and quilt!

Oh, I do remember those Illinois storms. I am also glad that I don't have to worry about them anymore!

How great to find your blog listed in a national publication. Congratulations on getting recognition for your Project Linus good work.

That is a great accomplishment! I'll have to sneak peak at the magazine store on my lunch break tomorrow. Well, we have storms and rain tonight so you will probably be getting them in the next several days.

We are having lots of rain, & high winds here. It is winter here, though.
Keep cosy & enjoy your quilting.

I'll check Quiltmaker next time I'm out and about. Congrats on getting mentioned there!

We have been plagued by storms too. They seem to come from KS...into MO...and we really don't want them...so we send them on to IL. We had them night before last with more predicted for today and again on Sat. I say...enough already!

How exciting for you! Congratulations. We're having wild weather here too. 400 lightening strikes in about an hour with this storm. Beautiful to watch, but scary too.

I just got that magazine, and I'll check out the web site right away. Thanks for your comment on my blog. In reply to your question, I have previously posted on my blog the directions for quilting in sections. That's how I can quilt a big quilt with my regular sewing machine. Most of the quilts on my blog have been quilted by using this method.

That's wonderful! And far more impresssive (and worthwhile) than my 5 minutes of fame!
Good luck with the weather - hope it passes soon.
