Quilter's Puzzle


Yep, I forgot I bought a quilt pattern at Joanns the other day. I did though. I just think this looks so cute. I took it to our little crafty women's group that meets at our church building on Tuesday nights and they all want to make it. So.... here's the plan for us. We are going to pick a Saturday in February, undecided which one yet, and meet at the bldg and all make it together. Won't that be so much fun? I can hardly wait. I worked on my Jacob's Ladder blocks last night and I have several more made now. There were only four of us, but we are all about quality, not quantity. On my way home last night, I was thinking, why didn't I take my camera and put those girls/women/ladies...whatever....on my little bloggie thingie....I'll have to remember to do that next week. The girls/women/ladies might not like pics, but they know I'm a pushy woman anyway.
Hey...and to top off my day today....my basement flooded ... again! Just had the well line dug up and replaced on the 15th and all the equipment down there for a week after that sucking the basement dry and now....it flooded again. I'm not even sweating it. I called my insurance adjuster, called the well company....who are down there now. It appears they didn't "seal" the inside of the wall well enough and it leaked. DUHHHHHH....really??? no kidding? Oops....sarcasm....sorry! More wet stuff to wash yet again. I've trying to have the attitude: "Will it even matter in 10 years?" Nope, it won't. I sound good now, but a few hours ago, I was on the phone with my accountant, who is a friend, and I had a complete meltdown. I don't think he's ever heard or seen me cry and I think I freaked him out. I did call him back after I composed myself. He told me it scared him because I am such a tough woman. He didn't think I could cry. Well now...the way I see it...he now knows that I am actually human. I have feelings.....ahahhahahaaaa, but I didn't realize that people see me that way. I am tough. I own a company that is a predominately male field. It's a heating and cooling company in case you wondered. Carrier Dealer.
Ahhh....it gets better.....the well guy just told me he can smell gas outside my house. How nice. Now let's go call the power company. Will it matter in 10 years? Only if my house blows up...ahahhahaaaa.....
I feel the breaking point cracking as I type......

***HUGS*** to you! The house stuff won't matter in 10 years, but it is a hassle that you don't want to deal with. Just take it in stride and sew when you can!!

This is just a hassel you shouldn't have to be dealing with. I have that puzzle pattern too...gosh so much that I want to start!!

You poor thing! I would be ready to blow my top!!! Actually, I would probably just sit down and cry!

I love the new pattern. I also have that patttern. I haven't made it yet, but I plan on doing it for Hunter or Andrew. Are you going to do the pieced version or the paper piecing on it?? One reason that I haven't started it yet, it that I want to do it in bright colors and I really don't have that many right now, I will have to buy some.

Do you have your strips cut for the Bargello on Sunday?? I'm really excited about doing it, well...if I'm not having to butcher the hog!!! That is a BIG mess!!!

That really is an annoying pain to have to deal with. Good luck and hope you get it fixed soon.
