Happy Saturday! This week really seemed to drag, I'm glad to have finally made it to the weekend. I'm definitely ready for some sewing room therapy. So it's good that I found a few workarounds to cope with the power problem. Tuesday morning we had a very severe thunderstorm roll through our area. It took out a lot of trees and damaged some roofs. According to co-workers the lightening took out a few TVs and computer routers. It also took out one of our cable boxes and the power to all the electrical outlets in my sewing room. The storm tripped the breaker and apparently caused enough damage that it can't be reset. I've been waiting on My Guy to get home from a business trip to take a look, but I'm guessing we are going to need an electrician. Thankfully the lights are on a separate breaker that was unaffected. There is a power plug just inside the door in the adjacent bathroom, so for now a long extension cord is providing power to the sewing machine and I've set up the old ironing board closer to another outlet in the hall to have power for the iron. Not an optimum set up, but it's at least workable.
I've been trying to get caught up on my Rainbow Scrap stitching. It's been slow going this week, but I did finally finish off all my yellow sawtooth star blocks from April.
These blocks will become a pieced border for my Inverted Star project. I've gotten a start on the pink Squared Away sampler blocks from last month, but don't really have anything to show there yet. No progress on this month's teal blocks at all yet.
The SIT is home and had friends sleep over last night. Since that rules out getting any housework done, I think I'll go sew. But first, I'll link up with Soscrappy for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge report. On Sunday, there is Oh Scrap to out check too.
