Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

The Binding Begins

I cannot believe I’m hand stitching another binding down. I don’t think I’ll be finished by next Tuesday, but I’m going to show the quilt anyway.  I would love to get a snow pic, but with any luck by the time I’m done with the binding the snow will be melted.

Yesterday I was in my sewing room cutting the strips around noon.  I didn’t have any lights on because it was bright enough with the light streaming through the big picture window. At one point I walked into the kitchen to put my lunch in the microwave. I opened my refrigerator and the light was out.  I looked around the kitchen and realized the power was out.  The rolling blackouts had started – only I didn’t know that’s what was going on.

I called the power company, they said it would be another 1-1/2 hours before power was restored.  I sent an email to my bosses at work via my phone to let them know I had now power, fixed lunch and sat down to eat.  In less than 20 minutes the power was back up.   On the news they said the outages in our area were up to an hour.  This morning as I was looking at the clocks which I had not reset, sure enough they were about 45 minutes off.

My power had been off for about 25 minutes by the time I noticed it.  Had I been anywhere else in the house other than my sewing room, I would have noticed immediately.
