It was a very busy and tiring week! My garage door opener has been broken for years but I have always been able to open it by hand. Well, not any more. I lost over 20 lbs. and I am weak so when I went to open the garage door to take the garbage out to the street....I couldn't do it. So, I finally had to bite the bullet and call a garage door company to come out and replace the opener. When I explained the situation to the gal on the phone she said she would send someone out that day even though they were booked up. The guy showed up at 5:00 and worked until 7:00! I was so appreciative and he had to drive 1 1/2 hours to get home and then through a thunderstorm! They were so nice and it is a real treat to not have to lift that garage door anymore! With all the medical bills pouring in and then the garage door.....my car's sensor light went on to have it serviced. I took it in and they said it is the gas venting system. It's not dangerous but they will have to put it up on the lift and spend more time on it. So I have to take it in again on Wednesday morning. Whew!!!
Needless to say, I haven't gotten too much done craft-wise. I only worked on things that I could do with the my feet elevated! LOL!
I did a couple Thanksgiving smalls.........I did not iron them yet. This was a free pattern from Plum Street Samplers
and this was a pattern I purchased last year from Country Rustic Primitives on Etsy and it was a WIP......she gives excellent instructions and even tells you how to antique it and sew it into a pillow. She has lots of cute small XS projects and I highly recommend her. Her prices are very fair also. Again, I apologize for the wrinkles.............
I worked on some granny squares....I just do 1 each evening while watching the news.......
I received my wooden blocker in the mail but realized it is only for circular projects. So, I will have to order another one for the granny squares.
I just realized I didn't set any goals for last week....just as well! Hopefully, this week I will continue on the granny squares, and the sampler. I also, would like to block the ghost doily, and sew a project bag plus get back to my Multnomah!
Have a great week and enjoy the long Labor Day weekend if you live in the U.S.!
