Yuck!!! Crud!!! *%2)%##!!! We've had a LOT of issues - tornadoes, strong storms, wind, a LOT of hail, unusual rain, emergency trips to the basement, our NOAA weather radio is freqently sounding the alarm, and one result is this mess! Oh yes, and an old sheet protecting the sofa -- Lovely, huh? We thought it had been fixed. It had previously been a small stain, but our recent, very heavy rains caused it to fall apart! We had to cut out the ceiling in order to divert the drip-drip-drip into the bucket as opposed to down to the floor, carpet, electrical, etc!
We called the adjustor, insurance company, etc., to be told our entire roof needs replacing, and the garage roof, and the facia, and the shutters are all destroyed.
Below is something more pleasant. I've shown it recently, but have decided to give it to the Guild Silent Auction. I LOVE it, hence more photos, but this house is bursting with quilts already - and maybe no one will want it, and I can bring it back home.
This week I finished quilting a friend's Kaleidoscope quilt. It's gorgeous - take my word for it - but it's HER quilt, not mine so I will only show a peek. Just for info, I noted the time spent, and it was 22.5 hours, and is about 78 x 100 inches. Time spent was most enjoyable! I only work 1 hour or less, at a time.
