That's right we have had awful weather today. Just terrible. Rain. Hail. The meteorologists calling for tornadoes. No joke.
Don't worry, it didn't stop me from getting my machine. Although, I did get on the road well before it all started to hit. The family and I went into town to get the machine. I had a really brief lesson threading it. Mr. "I am 3 and I am bored here" was getting a bit of ants in the pants, so I will go back for more lessons another time. Then we grabbed some lunch. then Mr. "Wonderful husband who bought me this nice machine" went looking for a new quilt store that I finally got wind of. That was loads of fun. What a nice shop, too. They had everything! Lots of fun things....Cherry Baby, Moda, moda, moda, that cool apron book that Mary Anne was using. Tons of neat things...loads of cool fabric! I didn't buy a thing! Oh believe me, it was hard! It was really hard.
But, I was waiting because my friend, Bev and I have this quilt shop trip planned in about 2 weeks. SO, I am standing in this awesome shop thinking maybe Bev would rather save gas and just come here for the morning. When I hear Bev, say my name! Telepathy??? No, I turn around and there she is....how fun is that??? We both agreed that we would come back to that shop and have fun there instead. Mr. 'I am 3 and it is my nap' was calling.
So, we headed home and that is when all the bad weather hit. I was laying in bed (taking a nap so I could unpack my machine and get some sewing done) and I heard hail and the tornado alarm sounding. I turn on the tv...I kid you not, they have not a thing about it. Two minutes later they say we will have a suspicious funnel cloud passing by in 10 minutes. It never did.....and they cancelled the warning. I suspect they were a bit late in their reporting. Luckily, it didn't matter much.
Miss Jean asked that I post pictures of the new gal in town. Miss Jean is just so sweet and I am happy to oblige!
I did some sewing on Buddy's quilt and I am happy to report that I really like the machine. Did I mention I get unlimited owner's classes for life and 1 year of creative sewing classes for free! I am going next week for some help on the embroidery.
