It’s been a little while since I posted. Unfortunately, it’s been a crazy few weeks! The storms a couple of weeks ago affected both our daughter and us. Their roof was impaled by a tree limb which went through the roof, broke some joists, and into their bathroom ceiling, with rain pouring in! The next morning, my husband and son-in-law were able to patch it so the rain wouldn’t do more damage. The insurance adjustor took ten days to get out there. Then, he took the “fix” off to look at the damage and decided to put up his own “fix” that wasn’t! We had more rain that night and they had three inches of water in their attic with power flickering in the bathroom and bedroom. Scary!! So, David had to re-fix the adjustor’s “fix!” They are still waiting for repairs. Not happy with that insurance company! The day after the initial damage, he was driving home from work and a guy ran a stop sign and they collided. Thankfully, no one was injured. Our problem was not quite so bad. We lost power for about 30 hours and lost a refrigerator full of groceries we had just bought – but thankfully no damage to our house. OK, enough of the bad stuff – now let’s move on to the quilty fun!
I must admit with all of this going on, and last week’s holiday (right smack-dab in the middle of the week!!) it’s been really hard to get into the quilting mood! But, I have managed to get a commissioned quilt I’m working on half finished. I’m calling this the “Troy Quilt!” The pattern is called Two Step Quilt Pattern by Annie’s. I have made it a bed-size quilt and added embroidery in the center to reflect the school emblem. This is the first half.
Well, that’s what I’m working on! Now, off to start stitching again! I hope you all have a great week!
