The washer and dryer were delivered and hooked up with relative ease.......but our wiring is not up to snuff for the dryer and Bill has to make some adjustments! I pushed the button to start the dryer and heard a loud pop and flash and arching sparking! I was so grateful the Lord protected me from death by electrocution! Bill found the mistake in the wiring. He has had to make changes to most of the wiring in the existing house, let alone run a mile of wiring in the additions! He is a pro now if he wasn't before! (He and Dad finished Mom's dryer hook up today, too!) Thanks, Bill; he just yelled he fixed the problem!
These are the quilt blocks Mom cut out the other day......it is going to be a very pretty twin sized quilt.
My neighbor gave me a fun little pkg of Fimo clay-I baked a few as buttons and the others will be used for necklaces. It was fun but too quick; I am going to look for some more little packages when I get to a JoAnns store next week!
I started the next dishtowel, this one is for Marsel. I have blended two patterns so this one will have a colored band on each end. ( from Handweaver's Pattern Directory, page 39 bottom of page )
This afternoon, Mom and I went to the ladies group to make some more of the sleeping bags/tied quilts for the homeless shelter. It was good to see friends we haven't seen for a year! Good laughs, catching-up and being part of a long line of ladies charity work; a nice way to spend the afternoon.
We shared a dinner with Mom and Dad tonight and then played 3 rousing games of Wahoo; the ladies are the night's winners!
(Yes, we had a busy day of storms in Florida but here, we just had a variety of rain/thunder storms and no real threats of tornadoes. Matthew did miss one by a few hours while making deliveries today and was a little disappointed (think frustrated storm chaser) but I wasn't! They did get to have some powerful thunder and lightening storms today.)
