|See the water stains?|
We rented the fans from the hardware store (gratitude (d): hardware store is open until 8 p.m. on weekdays and had fans in stock that evening) and they've been blowing (noisily) ever since.
We've filed an insurance claim (we have extra coverage for sump pump failure). What I really want to do is replace the carpet with vinyl. The carpet was nearly new when I moved in. Of course the best time to replace any flooring is when the space is empty (as in, pre- or post-moving). I have a LOT of stuff in those carpeted rooms. The flooring guy is coming today.

BUT I did sew this week! Pre-flood: I finished Scrappy Joy. Before and post-flood: I finished Sparkling Diamonds -- quilted, bound, labeled, and presented to the AAUW past president who will present it to the AAUW outgoing president in May. (And the past president insists on compensating me (we settled on what a longarmer would have charged).)
We turned the fans off in order to be able to hear our Sunday TV shows (Call the Midwife, Mr. Selfridge, Wolf Hall). I began setting some 30's 4- and 6-patch units that I made a few weeks ago. I originally thought I'd use white for the setting squares. One of the boxes temporarily relocated from the storage room contains solids. This peach cotton was on top. Perfect for my project! (Peach squares are 5" unfinished.)
It's Monday, the day to link up at Beth's Monday Making and Judy's Patchwork Times
P.S. Lots of erosion at the beach. I took these photos Sunday afternoon. Aren't these carrotty roots remarkable?
