    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 :(

    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!

    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:

    What a beautiful WIP! At least you have the 'before the storm' picture to guide you through the rerun!

    Just be really glad you took a picture before the **** hit the fan! I have found taking pictures at different stages to be a life saver!

    well.....I've certainly learned not to say "it can't get worse" :)
    and Sidmona......she does look innocent doesn't she?? Boy, does she have us all fooled. Can't take my eyes off her when she gets in a mood.

    With before picture in hand, I think I'd be making a certain person who turned on the fan put all the pieces back in place. As for puppy, all you can do is what was suggested, keep the lid down. I have to--just to keep the dog from drinking the blue water!

    I can relate. I learned that I need to find the spot outside for the sewer. Last time the man had had to go from the roof which made it much more expensive. I still haven't found it.

    Oh... No... But on the bright side son will have more appreciation of what goes in it after he gets to help put back together the puzzle, If I recall this is for your DD, yeikes!!! He & dog both in the dog house. X2
    Hard not to be upset, don't know if feel sorrier for you or son !!! :)

    Great idea.....except he turned the fan on as he was leaving to return to RI. He thought it was a little warm upstairs when he was packing up. He really did feel bad :) and I didn't want him leaving with me mad. Won't see him again for another 4mths! And as Ccalquilt girl said....it's for my DD....."yikes" is right....I need to fix this before she returns home this weekend for her visit and she sees it. Wow.....good thing her brother won't be in the house. LOL Been a long time since I've had to referee one of their battles!
