This and That

It has been a bit noisy on the block for the past few days as we had lost power after a storm. So had the generator running to supply enough power to run the fridge,tele, a light and luckily my computer.
As we supply our own water by means of electric pumps it can be quiet challenging. Especially the flushing of the loo. LOL. After 37hours we were pleased to have the power back on. But alas it was not to last. While doing the tea dishes tonight the lights went out again so back down to the shed (as DH had put everything away grrrrrrrrrr) To set up the generator again.


Okay on a better note I can now post Abby's PIF gift as she has received it. A finish for my Stringy Challenge as well as for the OPAM.
Have finally quilted my car quilt.Enjoyed doing lots of squiggley little cars, flowers and hearts.
Can also post the PJ
 bags I have made for my two youngest GC for Easter.
and a  little stitchery just made for whatever.Yah!! Five finishes to add to the OPAM for March.
