A Little Rain Must Fall

This little art quilt is titled Under the Sea it measures about 12 by 15 inches. It is for sale today in honor of the rain for 75.00.

Spring in February and we have the rains to show it. I love having 70 degree temperatures mid winter. I was able to get 18 shirts discharge dyed and 3 scarves dyed on Monday afternoon.

I used the microwave to steam the scarves and this is definitely a process that needs refining as my microwave runs too hot. The scarf colors came out beautifully in spite of my wonky microwave but I really had to alter the cooking time.

Our basement is wanting to leak again so we are holding the water back with a wild looking contraption my husband built. What fun! Brad was up all night on water watch ...I get the day shift at least.

Our contractor who LAST WEEK and now THIS WEEK is supposed to be fixing this flooding problem has hurt his knee we wait.... and wait...and wait some more.

I am hoping the rains slow down so I can finish up my latest piece instead of pushing water around with a broom. I go to the photographer tomorrow afternoon and I really need this piece to be finished.

I have a goal to post new pictures by Friday night so you can see the new work.

Be well and remember these are the Sweet Years.... even when it rains and your basement leaks.

water in the basement, huh? how appropriate, then, that your quilt portrays life under water!
