After an emergency visit on Saturday to fixed a clogged pipe in the basement, the plumbing service showed us that our sewer line was cracked, so work had to be done
to fix it.
Ufff! Takes the wind right out of your sails!
A very big hole in our yard and several large checks later ($$$), all I'm really good for is curling up with a good book and ignoring everything else.
However, there are, of course, plenty of other things that need to be done.
#1 Around the house - when things like this happen you notice all the old things that have been stored away and could be gotten rid of. So a truckload of donations need to go to Goodwill!
#2 There's lots going on in the sewing room that I want to work on this week.
- My hand-pieced pumpkins are moving along.
You can probably see where I'm going with this. I hope to use my newfound embroidery skills in that empty space, top left. We'll see! :)
- At the sewing machine, I'm working on more blocks for Almost Amish (right) and an idea for a scrappy border made of four patches (left) for my Tiny Tuesday quilt.
- Speaking of Tiny Tuesday blocks, I'm all caught up for now, and just need to wait for this week's block to come out, which usually happens on Tuesday evening.
These are the blocks from the last two weeks.
#3 And one last thing on the list - it's time for me to start going to my afternoon volunteer job - an after school Homework Help Club for elementary kids in a large, low income trailer court in our town. I'm late getting started this school year because of our recent trip, so this week is my first time there.
Hope your week is getting off to a good start, with no plumbing problems! Linking up to Roseanne's To-Do Tuesday at Home Sewn by Us.
