Another PIG finish.  Yeah. It's been so blasted hot here that I took a day for myself and sat in an air conditioned shop and finished quilting my Totem quilt.  I love this quilt and really have no idea why it never was finished to begin with, but I am scratching it off my list of things to do once and for all!  :-)

Lisa Moore is the creator of this wonderful pattern. I just love all her things. http://www.quiltswithatwist.com/ is where you can find her delicious patterns, and she's having an internet special right now.  Buy 3 get one free. Can't beat a deal like that now can we. I am making my list!

Still waiting to hear from the insurance adjuster, but my agent has called 3 times today. Hopefully that will lead to something. I do have phones now and the electrician replaced a bad outlet outside and checked over things and seems to think all is well. The furnace guy was here today too, and got my air conditioning back up and running. Hallelujah, my armpits are happy now! Did you know there are mother boards on furnaces too????  Now I sit  watching it rain and hail, thunder and lightening again. Sure after I watered the lawn... I kringe every time the lightening flashes. That monster of a TV antenna needs to come down, so I am not a target again!

My desktop computer is fried, and the surge protector was begging to be put out of its misery. But the good news is, I am pretty sure that is about all the damage. I should have TV back on Friday. Thank goodness for DVR. I am catching up on my old quilt shows, on it.


  1. So glad to hear that things are coming back to normal. And it is wonderful to have your air conditioner up and running again.

    The totems are wonderful. You should be very, very proud of them.

  2. Good to know you did have the day off. Certainly worth it to get that great quilt finished. Maybe these totems should have been up on your roof to ward off the evil lightning spirits!

  3. What a beautiful and unusual quilt. So glad you are getting back to "normal." blessings, marlene

  4. So glad things are starting to look up for you and the house.


Thanks for stopping by today. Your comments really do make me day!
