Back on Track

I've had an attitude adjustment and am back to smiling and quilting. Bought a fan and a dehumidifier. Good plumber fixed the leak and gave me instructions to turn the water heater back on after an hour. I left and when I got back home and went to turn the water heater on . . it's leaking! Bad plumber had removed it and put it back in so good plumber will come back tomorrow and repair that leak. But . . no tears this time. It's all part of being a home owner, right? Here's some good news: My blog, as well as nine others, including Tonya from the Mavericks Ring are featured in this Month's Quilters Home magazine. I had talked to Mark Lipinski, the editor, about it a while back but wasn't sure til I saw it in the magazine today. Of the other nine blogs mentioned, only a couple am I familiar with so I think I'll be getting acquainted with some new bloggers. I haven't had a chance to sit down and read the August issue yet but I loved the June issue. I'm going to try to save it for bed time reading tonight. Look at this weather! We've been here nine summers now and this is the hottest, longest summer I remember. I think I say that every year though! :) Going to sit under the fan and sew! Judy L.

  • I deleted my first post due to a spelling error. I thought I could edit it, but no. Anyway, I look forward to seeing the article where your blog is mentioned in QHM. How fun! I wanted to mention, also, that the colorful scrap quilt you just posted with the spare parts is also in the first Nickel Quilts book. The spare parts are used in a second pinwheel quilt that is really cute.

  • Congrats on getting into a magazine! Hope your plumbing problems get solved. Our son in law decided to go into plumbing. THe entire family is cheering him on.

  • Oh Judy! What a day! I think I would sat down and cried too. You know, crying is a good way to release stress... at least that is what I tell myself.

    I had to stop reading your posts and go to msnbc to see what was happening. I had no idea any of this was going on! You know, my husband almost had me talked into flying somewhere with him next year. I will be saying no now!

    I have not ever seen Quilters Home Magazine. I will have to look for it!!!

  • Pretty cool good news! I'll have to grab a copy of that magazine on Sept. 1st (when I let myself buy again.) It's funny, I had an offer to submit my blog for consideration but didn't respond because at that time I was barely posting every couple weeks. I'm glad you were included as you have a great blog. Can't wait to see who else is featured.

  • i am so sick of summer Judy. I just want to see temps under 100 once again.
    Congratulations on your blog being in the magazine. You are so famous !

  • So glad you are feeling better! That's so neat about the magazine. I'll have to find a copy this weekend.

  • Congrats on being in a magazine. Hope it says nice things about you and your blog. Yeah, any home repair problems get me really down too. I don't know why it is so hard just to call someone - but I think it is like what happened to you. It's hard to find someone reliable, and then you have to pay money you weren't expecting to pay.

  • Congrats on being put in Quilters Home! That's awesome! I can't wait to go and pick up a copy so that I can read all about y'all and the other bloggers! :)

  • Congratulations on being in the magazine, Judy. I'll have to keep my eyes open for it. Maybe I'll have DH buy it for me so that I'm not violating the August no buy challenge.
    Glad to see that your day turned around.
    Hope today is cooler for you.

  • Hope today is a much better day though you had much to be upset about. So it is official then--you and Tonya made the magazine. I'll look for it when next at Wally World.

  • congratulations on being in the magazine. Unfortunately i don't think we get here in Australia.

  • Congratulations. I can't wait to see the magazine. I bought the first one on a whim not realising it was new. I have one more store to try tonight to find it then I may be ordering it online.

    Its great to hear that blogs are finally getting the attention they deserve in the quilting press.

  • Sounds like a fun magazine -- I'll have to check it out.
    Plumbing problems are just no fun at all. Hope all the issues are cleared up and you can get back to a regular routine.

  • I looked at the magazine tonight just to see the thing about the bloggers. :)

  • Can't believe it's that hot and sticky and nasty there. Yick. Truly worse than it is here in Cairo, tho most people wouldn't believe that. Glad to hear you are smiling again.

  • I feel for you and your plummer situation. Good help can be so hard to find, and the last thing you want is the value of your house to go down with leaks and such :|
