Despite all the anxiety of having a potential hurricane barreling down on us, I did manage to turn off the Weather Channel long enough yesterday to finish up some quilty items. I had planned to sew all weekend, but Saturday, when the storm looked like it was heading directly for us, husband went into the panic preparedness mode and we ended up shopping for things like bread, batteries and plywood. Once the storm began to turn to the west, things got a lot more sane at our house, and I realized that turning off the tropical updates every 10 minutes was a healthy thing to do.
First, I made this pinwheel notebook cover for the Super Swaps covered notebook swap. The pinwheels were the bonus HSTs from the mini-Swoon blocks I made for the 3x6 bee a couple of months ago. I love it when things I might otherwise throw in the trash become useful and beautiful in another project. It makes me feel so - thrifty! I used a standard composition book for the journal. They are inexpensive, easy to find, and a pretty nice size to write on.
So, all in all, despite the distraction of the weather threat, I feel like it was a pretty productive weekend.
