Plumbing

Well, I finally had to bite the bullet and call in a plumber.... the hot water tap in my upstairs bath changed from a drip to a full stream! Oh No! So, after a week of running up and down 2 flights of stairs to turn the water on/off, and, after 3 1/2 hours with a very chatty plumber I have a new tap (woohoo!) no drip, cut off values upstairs, and the taps in the rest of the house have all been repaired. This should keep us going for a while. I chose a "high" faucet so Iris (the cat) can sit in the sink and drink to her hearts content without having to be a contortionist.
So, what's new in the quilting side of my life? Well, I'm currently working on a three leaf clover door hanging for St. Patrick's day. It starts with 3 basic 9 patches, and I am proud to say all came from my stash! When it came to the backing I have to admit I was at a loss, so made a quick trip to the local fabric store where they had a lovely clover patterned fabric - ta da!!
Hoping to have this one done for early March - wish me luck!

I found you on the Slow Poke Quilters list of bloggers. I liked your sense of humor, I liked the really fun quilts you make, and I love your cats. So I had to follow you :). I am curently keeping my eyes out for a young cat that looks like yours. What breed are they? Beautiful.
