Isn't this the sweetest little lap blanket?!
It has been a bit of a week-we burst an old lead pipe under the sink. (This is Bill's pic of the hole he had to chip out of the cement block under the sink so he could repair it.
While it was hard for us to reach, it wasn't hard for the water to leak under the cupboards and into our flooring.
I will save that saga for another day.
This is how I did dishes this week.......in the tub!
At least it wasn't in the creek!
I tried out a new Accuquilt die called LeMoyne Star.
It looked complicated but when you broke down the components, it was very enjoyable!
These blocks will be made using scraps from the stash with the others doing the Rainbow Scrap Challenge with Angela on her blog. This month's color is purple! I'm working on my drawing plan but wanted to jump in and get lost sewing with the week we've had!)
Four little blocks sewn together and I had it!
Bill finished the plumbing job just in time to make dinner!
It was so nice to work in a kitchen with water and a drain!
He even saved the pieces he had to cut out of the back of the cabinet so he could put them back.
I cannot begin to mention the blessing of having a handy husband!
(Oh, and during one of the trips to the hardware store for supplies, the car battery died.
Bill got a 'jump' from a helpful stranger and went and bought a new battery for it.
My Dad came and put it in for Bill so he could stay on course with the drain pipe!
What a day!
