PJ's, tornados, aprons and the Pantry!



What started out to just a fun PJ party at my Studio making the Four Corners Apron got sidetracked when one of the gal's husband called and said that we had tornado warnings in our county and it was tracking right near us. I could hear the tornado sirens as I ran over to the house, and asked my hubby to turn on the TV and sure enough, there were tornado warnings and we were told to go straight to a basement or an inside closet. I ran back to the studio, told everyone to hurry over to my house where there was a basement. We sat down there for 1/2 hour watching 2 waves of threatening weather go right by us. We heard there might have been a touch down about 4 miles from here, but we don't know for sure. They told us on TV to go to an inside closet...so hubby thought it would be funny if we all huddled into the pantry and he took a picture. Obviously the threat of a tornado was gone and we could have some fun. But dang..it took us away from sewing for about an hour. And then I couldn't find my camera to take a picture of the finished aprons! They were cute let me tell ya!

Well you may have lost some quilting time, but you girls sure look like you had fun. Glad you're all safe.

Glad your party only got interrupted for a short period. We went through some scares the other night as well and my daughter, hubby and I spent about an hour in our basement. How fun to be making aprons!

Indeed - it is good that you were passed by (so to speak). Of course, huddling in the pantry is always fun. I can remember once huddling in a bathroom in a McDonald's somewhere in Oklahoma. Not my idea of fun! I suspect that Paducah is going to interrupt your posting kitchen pictures, heh? Well soon, dearie. And lots of photos and details from Paducah, please.

Cheers,
Marne

I really like your blog - Pink and Green always make a great color combination I think.

I found a video on quilting online that I thought you and your other blogging friends might like to watch. The link is below.
