When at the Sudbury offices of Interweave it is always good to expect the unexpected. Our latest unexpected event was the fire alarm going off at about 10:00am on Monday morning. Let me tell you, our fire alarm is LOUD. It was actually painful it was so loud, which I guess will prevent anyone from staying inside when there is a possible fire. Which is obviously a good thing. Anyway, we all congregated outside and waited until we had the all clear to go back into the office. Since our iPhones are never far away from many of us, and standing outside for a while got to be rather boring, several people in the office (myself included) decided to snap some photos of the fire trucks as they arrived. Luckily it was a false alarm and we were back to work within a ½ hour, and the whole experience was reminiscent of a school fire drill.

(which, by the way arrived WAY before the other fire trucks. My bet is on #2 to save the day in a real emergency!)
Just hanging around, waiting to go back inside…
My "I am so cold, why didn't I bring a jacket today of all days" face.
Still waiting…. (sorry, just being dramatic. The whole thing took less than a 1/2 hour. )
Want to win some quilt making fabric? Tell me, what is the last unexpected thing that has happened to you in the studio? Leave a comment below and next Wednesday I will randomly pick someone who left a comment to get a jelly roll of Deb Strains’ Meadow Friends fabric from Moda! Please note the amazing frog fabric – I think that it is absolutely adorable! Although I am a bit biased because I do LOVE frogs as many of you may know.
