hangeth-ing in

Yes, Karoda - I am following your advice (and Beverly's second of it).  I stayedeth in yesterday, despite the gorgeous weather I wrote about.  Many roads not passable and I did not HAVE to go anywhere.  Today I have a lunch date, but I can walk (and probably should since I have not been to the gym since last week).

There is still a boiled water advisory and the water company is giving away 2 gal of bottled water per car for the people in town who have no water or low water pressure.  Thankfully, I am not one of them - and I also have pre-storm water in the fridge.

Sunday night, when the power came back on, I sliced up this ugly block and reinvented it.

Then, last night, I started to stitch a small quilt I had previously made from another reinvented vintage block.  Got too tired to finish it and went to bed, but here is what it looks like - before and after.

Since I am unable to do anything but mindless work these days, these things are keeping me amused.
Now, time to make coffee (from boiled water, of course) and get on with the day.

Love how you've recycled that ugly quilt. The new version is fresh and lively!

Dans l'attente de votre livre je me surprend à chercher des vieux blocs ou à en faire pour bientôt les tester. J'aime bien votre recyclage de bloc

I'm sure it must be hard to get anything done. Hang in there...

Cool! I love seeing you in action after all these posts just reading your thoughts.

I know I have a load of blocks that were made by our quilt guild members during the years we had 'make-a-block-take-a-chance' going.

Following your 'devil-may-care' attitude approach will turn these stacks of blocks into FOs.

Thanks for the video.

hugs

I like what you've done with your hanging-in-there time! Wish I could have stayed in and played with you, but no such luck- hot dry weather, and work calling.

I am so glad you are staying amused. This is very important. Having been through 5 direct hurricane hits in NC, I know whereof I speak!!
