    I had planned a quilt along to start by now. I have the quilt designed and in keeping with the spirit of this past summer's 9P project it was to be a stash buster. BUT, 3am Tuesday morning I awoke to find my DD had thrown in a load of laundry and gone out. The machine had a breakdown and never stopped filling! In fact, it filled my livingroom, kitchen, dinningroom, hallway and daughter's room. :cry:

    So...atm I have no flooring, furniture damage, 3 rooms dismantled, no sewing area and a lot of work ahead! Luckily my machines survived and most of my fabric and other quilting things but a lot of the other furniture is toast. :cry:

    Needless to say my little quilt along will have to wait. I am posting from my nookcolor that Santa brought me. At least I can still keep up with all you!

    I'm sure his intentions were golden. Sorry for all the hassle you'll have the next few days.

    Well here's an update. Flooring and furniture is going to be covered BUT it looks like it will be at least 3 weeks before we can get the flooring in. That means no quilting until after that since i don't want to set it all up to take it all back down. I guess that also means the garage and my room will remain jammed with everything from 3 rooms.
    I am going to have serious withdrawl!

    Life is full of grand adventures, isn't it? I do soooo get the withdrawal issue!

    You have my complete sympathy. My husband just fixed a leaking pipe in our rental home. It's taken several years and several false leads (and unneccessary fixes) to find the source of the leak - hope he really found it this time.

    I really do hate that this happened to you! But? Everything will sure be clean afterwards. Have to try to see a bright side however we can, whenever we can. I feel for you! Been there.

    Oh my, I feel your pain. Something hung in the valve which kept the water from shutting off. That happened to us a few years ago. Luckily, I noticed it before the water had spread everywhere. It was an exhausting process vaccuming up water into the wee hours of the morning. Thank goodness I had a steam cleaner, and a wet/dry vac too.

    I am so sorry that this happened to you.

    So sorry this happened to you. Just breath and take it one step at a time, and you will make it to the finish line.

    We are here for you, just vent and we will sympathize, offer ideas, whatever. Friends are the antidote to stress, as is quilting, etc.

    My friend had a similar incident but with a water heater. It's been almost 2 months that she's been out of her home and only the dryout has been done. Hope you fare better!
