Weekend already, thankfully :)

What a week!  What can I say, we lost our water for more than 24 hours, and now have not one, but 2 leaks, and need not one, but 2 new stop cocks.  Fortunately they will get fixed and the water is back on.  I can't tell you how much you appreciate something when you've had to struggle on without it! 

And then we got sick!  Both of us, the Teenage Diva and I had to take time off work and school, but we seem to be getting over it. 

So when I got home from work yesterday, the washing was on, the bathroom was cleaned and all was under control, I made a list .....  and I lost my energy ...

but I can show you my progress from last Sunday...

the sun shone, and the made pretty patterns with the blinds :)  I got my Sassy Christmas stars pieced, just borders to attach, they are cut ready and I think I'll take Sue's lead and piece the corners  (because some fabrics are running short)

and I got the first 6 blocks of the Happy Quilting Stars quilt along done, and the second set of 6 are on their way, 

So this morning, the last of washing has been done, I hung it out in the vein hope I might get some of it dry before the rain showers started, nope, it's in again!  I was hoping the Diva would sleep in to her usual 11 am, nope, she's up already! 

But I have my list:

Finish Susan's Brit Bee blocks
Add borders to Sassy Christmas stars
Bee Blessed blocks (at least 2)
Pea Room block
finish piecing block 2 blocks (6) for HQqal
catchup on Mystery quilt
load up a quilt on the frame
Oh, and maybe one or two other things might slip in along the way!

that should keep me busy for the weekend!  And the Diva is heading out later for a sleep over, so I can really get a move on!

How about you, do you have plans for the weekend, have you made a list?  Will you get a few minutes for some uninterrupted sewing? 

Happy Quilting!

That's quite a list! Thank goodness your water is back on - bet that was somewhat of a nightmare! I'm planning on prepping and stitching some more hexies, if I can tear myself away from the computer!

Oh Trudi, sorry to hear you've all been poorly! It takes a day or two to renew those energy supplies. And I know what it's like to be without water, last Christmas Belfast had none for 2 weeks, though ours came back on after 3 days, and the shops clean ran out of bottled water. We were like refugees queuing up to fill bottles at council depots! Not good. I'm sure getting back to sewing will be the best therapy! Jxo

I'm sorry you've both been ill, I hope you're recovering and taking it easy (Pot calling kettle black here do you think?)
The quilt is looking great, and so are your other stars.

Sue said...

The quilt and the other blocks look fabulous. I'm sorry to hear you have been under the weather, I hope you are feeling better now.
