They are to run for 3 days and my company is coming is 7...

While putting in the new heating and A C units they broke a pipe in the attic.  Water damage carpet and pad,  water damage bathroom ceiling, and the insulation in the attic.  Some got wet  that needs to be replaced
The damage is in my guest bedroom and bath... And guess what,  I am having company next week .. What are the chances of that.. hahahahahahah. This is the second time this has happened. And I think it was the same company that is coming again. Really  what are the chances of this?
FUN FUN FUN   I am trying to keep my sense of humor.

Quilt Fairy

I have heard about the quilt fairy for about 5 or 6 years  but never really believed.. Now I believe..

Her name is Faith.  I had faith the quilt would be done. :)

 This past week I have been working on a quilt. I had all the blocks done  but need to finish sewing them together. The backing was already too. The other morning  the finished top was laying on the floor to my surprise. All done!!!!

Now I was able to layer it and quilt it.. I just finished quilting      Thank you Quilt Fairy.. I Believe!!!!

Crochet Angels

I made a few of these little angels for neighbors for Christmas gifts.. This is an old pattern I have had for years. These make great little ornaments or an added bling on a present.

Of course I had to make a few for my Steeler tree. Gotta love the Black N Gold
