When it Rains

It pours. Literally.

Last Sunday, this was my street:

While we were very lucky and only had one room in our newly-finished basement flood, it was my sewing room. Not so lucky. However, there are several things that happened that night that made me count my blessings.

#1. I had a lot of stuff on the floor that was just piled and waiting for me to sort after we moved in downstairs. Part of this pile was all of my scrapbooking paper. You wouldn’t think that was lucky, except that right in front of that was also a pile of fabric I hadn’t put away. Fabric for my beach towel bags… and that terrycloth soaked up all the water before it ruined my paper!

Bits & Pieces

I promise I’ve been sewing. And sewing and sewing and sewing. I just haven’t taken a lot of pictures.

I made place mats for my friend, and didn’t take any pics before I gave them to her.

I have caught up on all my bee blocks, and I do have pictures that I will try to remember to actually pull off the camera. Here are a few I snapped with my iPhone.

I sent off my scrappy mug rug to Molly.
