I have all the fabric cut now for my next quilt.  I think it will be a fun one.  I taught my bridge class and then worked on my fairy tale puzzle.  I love the fact that there is a gay couple in it–poor Rapunzel lets down her hair, but the prince below is too distracted by another prince to care.  I am glad that our weather is staying a bit cooler.  Yesterday was lovely and today is still staying out of the 80’s.

  1. My partner and I just returned from visiting with his mother, who insists I call her “Mom”. Her home is out in the country and is filled with craft and quilting supplies. Your post made me think of her and that made me smile. So I thought I’d share that smile with you. 🙂

  2. Me thinks repairs are in the airs! I had to have a new thermostat put in my heat pump yesterday. With an all electric home some repairs have to be done immediately. Not too good on the wallet, but it has to be done.

    A great place to find puzzles (though there is always a chance of a missing piece) is the charity shops. Sometimes garage sales too. I had a 3D one once. Not sure if I ever finished it. That might be tricky with your fur family 🙂

    Cheers, Jules

    • You’re right about the repairs and I just had to put in a new thermostat for my heat pump as well. I’m hoping my old one was still under warranty as it wasn’t that old. And you’re right about a 3D being more than the cats could resist. I’ve given some of my puzzles that I don’t want to work again to our island thrift shop, but I’ve never gotten any there. Thanks as always for stopping by and good luck with your repairs! 🙂

      • Our heat pump was still under warranty, with the exception of the thermostat… of course.
        Since our place is 100% electric it wasn’t something we could do without. Might have had some kind of a power surge as something got fried. Pocket book is much lighter now 🙂

        Another good place for puzzles to give is retirement communities. And if they have a thrift shop a good place to look for them too.

        • Just got my bill and it wasn’t under warranty. I used to have an all electric house but finally had to bring in natural gas for a generator. Living on an island with 6 fur friends doesn’t leave me with lots of options when the power goes out. It was worth it for the peace of mind. 🙂

          • With ours ‘children’ out and no pets, and being involved with our volunteer fire-fighters – if the power went out for and extended period – we would camp out at the fire house that has a generator. We’ve thought about gas for cooking… but the risk of having an outside tank isn’t one we’ve chosen to take …yet. Of course there is also the placement of said tank. We have seen other neighbors with tanks. But it isn’t high on our list of must haves.

            • I agree with you about the tank. They scare me as well, and they are ugly. Thankfully there was a natural gas line on my street, so I was able to bring it to my house. I have friends who have fireplaces where I would be welcome, but not my six fur friends. Otherwise I was very happy with my all electric house.
