June is turning out to be one of those months. If you've come for the quilty stuff, skip down to the picture. I'm pretty sure the next little bit is going to have the tone of a rant.
I've been AWOL from my home computer, so I'm way behind on returning emails and reading blogs. Unfortunately that's not going to change for probably another week. So my apologies on that, I miss seeing all the fun stuff everyone is doing, though at this point it would feel a bit like salt in the wound since I can't play right now. Getting the old job wrapped up and working at the new has been a challenge. I've been working some long hours since last weekend. Work is pretty much the agenda for this weekend as well. But I'm hopeful that by pushing hard this week, I'll at least not be bringing work home each evening the following week.
To top off this less than pleasant week was the pronouncement by the washer repair guy that it wasn't the door sensor, it's the control boards and the pump. So after two weeks of trying to get the repair guy to order the part and then back over here, we're going to have to get a new washer. Found that out yesterday, so this afternoon I'll take a break from all the report writing to go get a washer. But the way things work here, the washer won't get delivered till next week, if we are lucky. So that means a trip to the laundromat again this morning.
Sorry, I needed to vent. Thank you for letting me. Now on to just a little bit of fun stuff.
I did finish two sets of half fans this week. That's about all the sewing time I've had. I need 12 halves, so 8 more to make, then I need 6 full sized yellow blocks. I believe someone last week was lamenting that finding dark and light yellow was a challenge. It certainly is. My yellow scrap stash is pretty big and I barely eeked out enough for all planned blocks. I forgot to take a picture of my two piles of fabric. It's just been that kind of week.
You can find more sunny yellows over at Soscrappy and at Oh Scrap on Sunday.
