So Hurricane Matthew turned out to be no worse for Central Florida than several of the tropical storms that have stalled in our area.
With the rec centers all closed, and grocery stores bereft of food, Dan and I found ourselves with a whole day of nothing special to do. Into week three of the Beth Moore "Entrusted" study, I did my daily Bible homework, some laundry, and kept up with hurricane news, including the evacuation of Savannah, George. I can't help but think of next February's Quiltcon East which will be there.
And I'm quilting. This one will be done today.
Lately, I've been shopping at several flooring stores, looking for something to replace the original, builder's low-grade carpeting in the three bedrooms. In particular, my sewing room carpeting is looking very dirty and worn. After entertaining several flooring options that would look nice with the ceramic tile in the rest of the house, we've settled on this laminate by Mohawk.

It's Quick-Step flooring in "aged chestnut." I especially like the looks of it with our white furniture. We'll be topsy-turvy for two days in November, while this is being done - including having carpeting removed from the master bedroom closet and replaced with tile to match the bathroom - but it's gonna look so good when it's done.
Now I'm wondering how my two rolling sewing chairs will be on the laminate. Don't I need a couple sewing room rugs? What would you do? Linda
