Hey there, not much to post. Worked on Rainbow Mermaid last night, but no pictues! Got the hot water heater fixed, went out to dinner. Umm... slept?

Exciting life, eh?

Don't have any big plans for the weekend. Just going to try to get some housework done. Hopefully my Pako needle organizers will get here today and I can get them set up for use this weekend.

Fruit and Fire

Thursday, August 28, 2008

Well, I stitched on Fruit Cocktail last night, got quite a bit done considering that our hot water heater caught on fire! The "challenged" people that built our house put a small hot water heater in the air conditioning closet UNDER the a/c unit. Everyone knows that a/c units occasionally leak. The leak (small drip, drip, drip) got the element units on the hot water heater wet and shorted them out. First there was the smell of ozone... then "huh, something is burning"... then a mad rush to shut off the breaker to the hot water heater, turn off the fire alarm, and grab the fire extinguisher. My DH did the first, I did the second, and DD did the third. What a mess! The whole house stinks. Luckily this is a secondary hot water heater that serves to make it so the bathrooms on the far side of the house don't have to wait two or three hundred years to get hot water from the main unit (which is in the garage). DH is investigating what needs to be done to fix the element that burned up, and how to keep this from occurring again. I'm so glad he's a great handy-man (tee hee, in more ways than one). We're just so thankful that we were home when this happened. If we hadn't been there..... who knows.

Back to stitching:

Here is my progress on Fruit Cocktail from last night, and on Queen's Croquet Ground from the night before.

If All Else Fails.... Just Start Over

Well, I gave up on my other blog... I couldn't get the damn thing to let me edit the layout or customize anything. So here's my solution: Make a new one!

I'm mad that I'll lose the posts from the other blog, but excited that I can finally put the WIP links up.

I stitched on Queen's Croquet Ground again last night, got in a few hundred stitches. No pic today, maybe tomorrow.
