Lots of water over the dam..............

Well, maybe not over the dam, but lots of water.  On January 9th we had a pipe to burst on our second story and of course we were not at home at the time.  We came home to water gushing out of the ceiling, light fixtures and door facings on our main level and a basement (oh so recently completed and being thoroughly enjoyed by us) standing in 4" of water..........ceilings gone, sewing machines, computer, printer and lots of other stuff..........gone.  Since then we have been living in two bedrooms upstairs.......DH, three dogs and kitchen, a tiny 13" TV and most of our personal belongings packed away somewhere in a warehouse.  It is now July and we are hoping and praying that the reconstruction of our house will be completed by the end of the month.  Dealing with insurance and mortgage companies has been a nightmare.  You don't even want to know.  At any rate, I just haven't had the heart to blog........and, I can't find the cord to download photos from my camera.  At the warehouse, no doubt, along with our furniture and 600 boxes of stuff (what can all of that be?????)

Life goes on :-)

Yesterday a bunch of the old ( age and the fact that it has been a long time since we worked together)friends got together for Mexican at lunchtime.  Thanks, Geneva, for coordinating this for us.  We got a photo, but not until a couple of the gals had to go back to work.  Not a great photo as it came off my cell phone, but you get the idea.

I am really itching to be stitching.  I have a brand new sewing machine waiting on me, but no place to set up and work........and all of my sewing supplies are packed away at the storage facility.   GRRRRRRRR.  I have been doing a bit of rug hooking and will try to upload a few photos of that later.  Basically, I have been too distracted to do much.

I have spent an inordinate amount of time browsing blogs, making some new friends, admiring everyone else's work and ordering stuff that I have no place to put.  What can I say?  It is an addiction.

Back to work now,
