and then the idiots!

SO good news WE HAVE OUR HOUSE...bad news they wont turn our gas on which powers our hear and water heat...so no hot water! SO after a $1500.00 estimate from the AC guy :S I have got my dad and brother to try and help redo the gas piping from the heating unit and the water heater to the outside of the house. I am like RAWR, one because it is a serious safety issue and does not meet codes as is still not sure how an inspector coud miss this but I have been informed that it is not "Really" there job to look for codes..WTF ??? anyhoo! SO now $300 bucks later, listening to my dad and brother argue like 5 year olds in Lowes, and then listening to them throw metal and curse eachother for a couple of hours... we are still not finished lol (sigh) I am hoping that later this afternon they will be but we shall see. I am just hoping this works so I do not have to in the end get the AC guy to do it as well, lol. I am thankful my dad and brother are helpful but phew yeh you have no idea....but enough on that. Other than that we are planning on moving most things today and tomorrow. I hope the gas gets turned on tomorrow so we can move in officially tomorrow night since I have to be back to work Thursday night. I did get our bedroom painted, all by myself I must say and I am sore as heck but it is awesome and looks alright as far as painting goes, a few boo boos but I think I can live with them. I got the office trimmed out with paint but have yet to do he main painting with the roller, I was in the middle of al that when I had to deal with the gas issue and then to Lowes etc etc...I tried cleaning a bit too but was coughing and sneezing too much so I just gave up, lol. SO I have to clean some more later when I go. I was hoping to get started early but Jes wanted to nap after work and before we got started so I am just sitting here kinda doing whatever, like this. I think I will go and load up my car with some stuff here in a bit just so that will be all done before he does wake up. I am going to try anyway!

Wish me luck with the gas people whenever they come back!!!!!!!!!

In limbo

Since we are still at the mercy of underwriting, we are still in limbo and I have pretty much done little. I have been infected per sinuses pretty bad and have not felt like much either the past two weeks! :) However I did manage to mail off my finished DQ for DQS7 and I also finished a block and mail it off to it's home in Australia. I also got my DQ from a lovely lady in Australia not New Zealand :P ! :) It is very me since it is a fairy! :D SO at the moment most things are still half packed not packed, no idea if I will have to pack more or unpack what I have packed, frustrating! So I have not started on any new sewing since space is still very limited and everything is all over the place. I hope that my next post brings very merry news of a move :S

This was my first attempt at a wonky log cabin. You would think it would be
super easy to just make it all wonky, but I had more trouble than I thought.
I think it looks more wonky on the pink side and not wonky enough on the other.

Well now that I have had a day to calm down about. I am sad that I have nothing sewing like to post. I am half packed and half not packed. I have no sewing area at the moment and a doll quilt to finish! I just have to sew on my binding and sew on my label and then I can have her ready for mailing. I am hoping to finish the binding tonight, I have to move a few things about and find the ironing board, :P. I also have to unpack the camera so I can get a picture.

SO on the note of the house, we are just back to square one. Our mortgage guy is awesome so he is trying another program for us since we do not have down payment money at the moment. So we have an extension for the house and hopefully will now something in 3 weeks.

And since I am mostly packed I have no idea what to do with my time when the doll quilt is done. I had started on a new quilt but I do not have the space I did have before so I am not sure I want to drag it back out. I may just leave it for now and continue with it later. SO that leaves me again with, I am not sure. I do not want to try and start anything new so I might devote my time to reading a few books and just relaxing. I have some hand quilting I do as well.
