Burst My Bubble



Well the bathroom is still NOT functional. The plumber came yesterday to install all the faucets and found a part missing to complete the tub hook up...#1 Problem. The wrong toilet was ordered, so he showed up WITHOUT a toilet...#2 Problem. It was very disappointing to not have a functioning bathroom. I've been waiting for a very long time and it's so close, I know I shouldn't complain. On the brighter side the sink is working....I have running water in the sink. I can brush my teeth. He is coming back this morning to finish things, I hope he arrives with the correct part and a toilet. I was so excited yesterday but I just want it done NOW.

I needed a distraction from my disappointment so I sewed...sewed...and sewed all day until this top was done. The LQS owner asked if I had time to make this quilt, I said "no" but I needed something to take my mind off my disappointment and this quilt was waiting and ready to go. It will be displayed as a top this weekend at the Sewing and Craft Show and quilted later. The fabrics are from the Sanctuary line.

Waiting for spring...

Sorry to read about your bathroom. I like the quilt. The colours are so springy and cheeful. I do like that line of fabric. Thanks for sharing! Happy quilting!

Very dissapointing - I hope you have a spare bathroom! Good for you to turn the frustration into something positive.

It's a beautiful distraction. Hope the bathroom is done today. Even with the disappointment, it will be wonderful and exciting when it's done.

Such a pretty quilt! And I love the sashing and cornerstones!

This is a pretty quilt. I hope you have a spare bathroom. I don't think I could hold it that long even if I could quilt the whole time I am waiting! Our bathtub was disfunctional last week, and it was just wretched.

Seems to be the way with bathrooms.
Very pretty quilt, gorgeous fabrics. I think we must have the same taste in fabrics.
