Back to Quilting and Goodbye Norm

Norm, Peggy's garden gnome, has been a wonderful guest! I think he enjoyed his trip to Louisiana. He's leaving here today to head to Texas to visit Peggy for a while. Here he is perched atop a roll of batting for the final goodbyes. Goodbye Norm, hope you have a wonderful trip. Thanks Peggy for allowing him to visit with us. We had quite a storm here last night. A few roofs blown off (thankfully not ours!) and some gas pumps down at the corner station were blown over. That seems kinda strange, huh? Tornado sirens never sounded so it must have been just heavy winds. Some of the worst hit parts of TN were the areas we drove through on Saturday so we're counting our blessings today that we missed all that and the worst of the storms missed us. Chad is back to school, Vince is back to work and I'm back to quilting. Vince will be traveling for the better part of the next couple of weeks so I am hoping to get LOTS done. This is the fabric for the quilt I started yesterday. Maybe not what I would have chosen had I been at the quilt shop but this all came out of my stash and I'm pleased with the way it's looking. I've loved the orange paisley fabric for a while and didn't have a whole lot of it but there was plenty for this project. Feels great to use 9 yards out of the stash. Judy L.


  • Glad to see you are at home!

    It really stormed here in Iowa last night too. My aunt in KY said it was pretty bad there too.

    Love the fabric combination!

    I'm glad you're back safe and sound and still with a roof overhead!

  • Glad you are home safe and sound. What a welcome back though, a nasty storm : (
    The fabrics work so well together laid out I am sure its even more wonderful worked up in the pattern you have chosen.
    Norm looks well rested from his travels and I am sure he will have lots of fun on his next adventure.

  • I was just reading about the storms across the Midwest this weekend--27 fatalities? Oh, my. It's that time of the year, for sure. My mom is IL said that their sirens sounded and they had to get into the interior of the house closets--no basement and all the rooms have exterior windows.

    Good to know that you and Norm all got home safely.

    Love the fabric choices--the focal fabric paisley is very nice! Will watch for the pic of the top when completed.

  • Welcome back home! Feels good, doesn't it? I really like your fabric combo. The pic of Speck and your description of his laying on the bed cracked me up! I know that trick when they get all like a wet noodle and it's almost impossible to get them up. Silly dogs!!!
