Oh dear. It's been almost two weeks since I posted last. Stuff just happens - ya know? I don't know who originated the quote in my title, but they sure knew what they were talking about!
Last month we had a lot of rain. Really a lot of rain! The ground became fully saturated and the water table rose around here. That means water in the basement for most everyone in town!
However, not everyone in town has the basement full of "precious" everyday stuff like I do! We've been talking about a new floor for my sewing room, but can't consider that if water is going to come in whenever it rains a bunch.
OK, long story short. This is what my sewing room looked like for a few days!
And this is where the sewing machine usually sits.
So . . . not much crafty stuff getting done in that room! Just a lot of sawing, sealing, and hammering. There was also a fair amount of worrying going on. LOL!
Once the room got put back together (sort of), there were the two days the internet was down, trips to the dentist, classes, meetings, and so on. Oh yeah! Misplacing the camera as well! Oh boy - when it rains, it pours! Oops - not the best choice of adages that.
Only one more waterproofing project to be done, though. You may have seen this cabinet before:
It's about sixteen foot long and taller than I am (not that that's very tall!) and it has to come out! At least temporarily - to replace waterlogged boards behind it. I have fingers crossed that it will all go back in. 'Cause it is FULL of my stuff!!!!
As in seven shelves of fabric (and all the accompanying goodies) by sixteen feet! OK, I exaggerate - the in-between shelves don't go all the way and there are lots of books and boxes. It's not that much fabric - no matter what Sarge thinks!
Not to worry, though. I have managed to do a couple of projects that will soon be pretty picture posts for you to enjoy. I will be back to show you some fun things in a couple of days. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
