Disaster Assistance Team

Standard

Well, yesterday totally required a Disaster Assistance Team…part of the days disaster was loosing my so terrific picture of friends Sandy and Judy standing next to a truck advertising Disaster Assistance Team. Sigh…

Left early morning for a trip up to Montgomery Texas to meet a quilting buddy and her hubby, Sandy and Gerald. Going to visit and bring home a wonderful batting rack that Sandy was kindly donating my way. Almost made it when my baby, my cream white SUV decided it wouldn’t go further. Beautiful weather, sunny with a nice breeze, and there we sat! Onstar was great, that is after nearly an hour of convincing the obviously new employee that I was indeed 12 miles from I45 and did not need to be towed to Austin, 3 hours away. What can I say, she was obviously very new and trying hard. Eventually the tow truck came and off went my baby. It now sits at Buckelew Chevy in Conroe Tx. The good thing about that was that the serviceman, CW, lives on my end of town and gave us a ride back to a stafford, Tx. Looking on the bright side! Had a great time visiting with Sandy and Gerald!

Ok, back to quilting. Here is the result of my pin wheel experiment from a few days ago. I will use it as a table topper when I get it quilted. I do like it though. The method worked really well, although it needed to be heavily starched to avoid mis shapen blocks due to the bias’.
