Post Christmas…

At the present time there is a Nor-Easter raging outside.  It is an ever changing day here, one moment it is raining and the next it is snowing.  I do anticipate that we will lose power at some point in time because the winds are really howling.  It doesn’t seem to take much to make the power go out these days, and our area is always one of the areas that gets hit with power outages.  I am so glad that we had the generator installed.  No worries when the power goes out.  We have heat, hot water, some lights and my freezer and fridge have power so I don’t lose all of the food in my freezer, I can cook because I have a gas cooktop so we will be just fine.

I have family flying out of Albany, NY today – flight is delayed at this point.  Hopefully they will be able to get safely off the ground soon winging their way to sunny Florida.

Island Star for Charlotte

This is a quilt that I made for Charlotte –it is a flannel quilt because Charlotte, like many of the young ladies in our family, is always cold.  It is named Island Star.  The pattern is from a book written by M’Liss Rae Hawley called More Fat Quarter Quilts.

I didn’t use fat quarters but I did use leftovers and some scraps.  I love making flannel quilts but you have to be careful not to use a pattern with too many small pieces.  It is hard to get your points sharp when you are using flannel.

Since it is a stormy day here – I will probably work on the next step of Easy Street so that I can share it on Bonnie Hunter’s page later today.  I will start planning some new quilts that are bouncing around my head and I will think about dinner tonight.  I love to cook hearty meals on snowy days.  At this point the plan is Penne ala Vodka and a pork tenderloin.  If the power goes off that will probably change since I will not be able to roast the tenderloin.

If you are in the Northeast stay safe and dry.

Be Kind….
