Another top made.....

This little gem was today's playtime project ! Had sewn the blocks in the truck a long time ago and just finally got around to putting them together. This is the Weed Wacker pattern by Bonnie Hunter, a great fun easy project to help reduce the scrap pile. Sometimes mindless sewing really hits the spot.

We Have Water !!!!!

It was a lot of expense, and a lot of work and a lot of mess but we finally got the city water installed just before dark tonight. I was so happy to finally have water again that I scrubbed the bathroom and did laundry first thing LOL. We got the trench dug yesterday but did not get the pipe layed and hooked up till late this afternoon, checked for leaks, fixed one, then had to bury the line to protect it from these bitter temps..... 9 right now. It rained during the night last night so we had to scoop water out of the trench so we could work. What a mess !

Went to move the trucks around a little after we finished working and my truck brakes were frozen so had to mess with it to get the truck to move. Gawd I hate winter !........

Last Load of the Year Delivered

I got lucky this evening and the customer asked me if I would like to unload today instead of tomorrow so I said YES ! The job site that I went to was wayyyyyyy up on a mountain, at a clay mining spot where they are building a plant to manufacture concrete. It was kinda spooky going up there , these pictures were taken out of the passenger side window of my truck !

It is freezing rain now, so I pulled into this truckstop for the night. Will go on home tomorrow if mother nature allows. Will just decide when I wake up. They are salting the roads but I would rather wait till mid morning to give the roads time to improve......

Hiya again......

Just wanted to give you a peak at what I worked on last weekend when I was in the motel. I was just zipping along on it , having a great time and I ran out of scrappy squares, so this one had to get put aside till I can get home to my scrap bins and cut more squares. I think I am gonna like it !

This weekend I am stuck in Oklahoma City, OK without a load....... this is getting to be a real regular situation... so, I am doing some real serious thinking about what I am going to do in the new year to remedy this situation. More on that subject when it is a done deal.......
