1. Do not leave your design board unattended when your son is home visiting and decides to turn a rotating fan on. (Unless you have every single piece pinned down!) GRRrrrrr. I will be hours putting my quilt back together!

2. It costs a lot of money to have a plumber come to the house to remove the marrow bone the puppy dropped into the flush! $250 worth of a learning experience! Just think of the fabric I could have bought :(

After the "#*!* " hit the fan

Before *#!* The Fan

Waiting for me to turn my back again!

My brother, who is forever doing crazy things that cost him an arm and a leg, says, "Education ain't free!"

I hate to admit it, but he's right! LOL! That's why I have scrap boxes full of "dumb mistakes" fabric pieces!

What if you closed your eyes? ;)

I'd be so not happy!

That is terrible, hope you get your quilt back up on your design wall soon.

Sorry to hear about the dog, be sure to close the lid on toilet.

I have to put the lid down when I go shopping and leave the kitties inside to enjoy the air conditioning. They knocked over a small standing shelf unit (with extra TP on it) one roll landed in the toidy. I found out it is VERY absorbent. :roll:
