I finished quilting this “ugly” winding ways quilt, I don’t have binding ready for it and I really DON’T like this quilt at all, SO….
I’m packing it up and giving it to my guild to finish up and give away
I did finish a yellow monkey wrench block. It’s very pale, but I think that’ll be okay.
I also finished two yellow log cabin blocks for RSC16
Then I started on the Island Batik monthly challenge for the month “pumpkins” so wait and see.
And Sonja loves playing with Swiffer, he squeezed himself into this empty box and then she had fun pulling the box around, he doesn’t look thrilled but he actually purred afterwards.
He’s been a BAD kitty though!
My husband came up this weekend and told me, Swiffer had clawed TWO sets of speakers that my husband has made (he’s a woodworker and has loved making several different speakers over the years) but the components have to be right and they are $$$$, he’s even taken speakers apart and scrapped them and saved the components for a new set… Anyways $2000 worth!!
oh and to top it off, I almost burned down the house!
Saturday afternoon at lunch time I was making Mac N Cheese for bjorn (soft food) and we lost power due to Matthew (I actually thought it was hubby that did it because he was installing a new light fixture and had cut power to that) we didn’t get power back all day, Sunday we even woke up in the dark sort of and went to church, then on the way home I texted neighbors and they said we got power at 10.30 Sunday, so kids walked right in and right back out that the house was smokey!! I had forgotten to turn off the BURNER! it had boiled for probably 2hrs (after of course the water had probably evaporated overnight) and aluminum from the layers of the bottom of the pan had actually melted onto the stove glass top! it smelled horrible, but no flames! hubby ran in, opened all doors and windows and I kept the kids outside and we went for a walk! it took all afternoon to clean up and air out and I am thankful it didn’t cause a fire!! just a wasted pot and the melted aluminum is in a cool ball now! (not really cool) didn’t know that was in it actually! as the bottom had copper in it…SIGH!! Hubby was afraid to send me to the store for groceries before dinner, that something bad could happen.
I think we’ve had enough bad things happen for a while…..
Okay, so catch up on the two blog hops this week!
