Have you ever been so tired that you just didn't want to think about anything and just totally veg? I worked so hard these last few months, my brain is tired.
I've been looking forward to taking this month off but spent the first week recovering or trying to recover. Spent 1 day preparing for a business meeting and another day having the business meeting, 2 days running errands and another day fighting with my insurance company about the damage on my house.
There were leaks every where. Here is Silas checking out a bucket of water. Yes, the bucket did fill and Silas did knock it over. What a mess!!
Luckily, the insurance company did send someone out with these huge dehumidifiers to dry out the house. Snowflake really liked them. They were very loud and they vibrated. She would lay on them for hours at a time. There were 3 of these huge monsters on the main floor of my house. It was so loud, that I could not sleep with them on. I had to turn them off.
The estimate for the house itself was ok, I think but they did not include the motion activated outdoor light fixture that was ripped out of the wall or the damage done to the deck. Good thing I had pictures! I have to call them again because the wood specified on for the deck is not defined as being pressure treated. Who builds a wood deck and does not use some kind of treated wood? That just does not make any sense.
Can you see my nosey kitties looking out the sliding glass door?
I finally had time to spend in my sewing room this weekend. I found another Mariners Compass block, if anyone wants one, please post.
I have some golf theme fabric that I would like to give away if anyone is interested. Silas likes it. I have 2 yards of the dark and 1 yard of the light. Post if you are interested.
This is a picture of a RR quilt that I did in 1998. I moved cross country with the x for his job. My father had just died and didn't know anyone in San Francisco where we were moving. I found a lady on the internet, who lived in Canada, who wanted to start a Round Robin group. I think there were 6 of us. I remember 1 lady lived in France, 1 in Maine, 2 in Australia. We followed a book called Rounds of Friendship. This quilt was a year in making but it's one of my treasures. I just love it.
I love hearing from you folks. Post if you want to win the Mariners Compass block kit or the golf fabric. I'll have one of the kitties choose a winner Sunday.
ttfn :) Yuki
