Rain on the roof

In reply to Judy: the metal roof strips snap together, & over lap much like the closure on a Zip Lock baggie. They lay one sheet down, screw the edges, then cover up the screws with the next sheet. The top sheet is tapped down with a rubber mallet, snapped together like a Zip-Lock bag closure. No screws show when they are done. It's pretty neat.

We've had a pile of wood dumped in our driveway right before the snow started flying. I finally moved it to the side of the garage.. it may not look like much, but it was 3 days of hard labor for me!

It rained quite a bit this past week, making it hard for Richard & Warren to get the roof done, but our flowers liked it. There were 2 areas that leaked until they got the ice & water shield up.

The metal got delivered & they got more than 1/2 up now.

Saturday the sun came out just in time for my friend Judy's birthday party on our deck.

Some people actually complained that it was too hot!

After the party guests left, Warren took me to see "Brave". It was a cute movie. 
Today I worked on a very small area of the orange quilt. I started quilting & realized the tension was off. I ended up spending the next couple hours ripping out what took 2 minutes to quilt!
After that I sat down & did a little bead embellishment on a pin. 

Here's hoping the roof will get done, & the quilt will make progress this week!

Hello Deb. It looks like Your friend Judy really enjoyed her birthday party. I could of never moved all that wood. I am sure it was very hard labor. LOL Your flowers are lovely and OH how I wish we could get some of that lovely rain too. Hopefully your roof will get on soon. Hugs Judy

What kind of flower is the blue one? Your flower pictures are beautiful.
There is nothing worse than ripping out machine quilting.

I was thrilled the sun came out for mom's party. Thanks again for letting me have it up at your place.

Love the flower pics, very pretty and that sucks about having to rip the stitches out.

I love the flowers Deb- hope that the weather cooperates and that they can soon finish the roof.

Amazing how much longer (exponentially) it takes to un-sew than it does to sew.

The flowers are aMAZing!!
