Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye
November 10th, 2012 by Annette


This weekend was a Holiday Craft and Sewing Fair and I made plans with my buddy Terri and my mom to wander the aisles and find more projects for the never ending to-do list.

Unfortunately, Mom had to cancel but Terri and I were determined.

We managed to arrive early in the show day and started down the first of the aisles.

It wasn’t long before my phone rang and I learned that my senior citizen hot water heater had gone to the appliance depot in the sky. It was 13 years old so it had a good long life.

Luckily, my dear husband had offered to do the grocery shop while I was off gallivanting and chose to come in the house thru the garage. The kids noticed water and the leak was found before it could do too much damage. It still flooded my pantry and wicked into the living room, but thanks to our new tile floor, the damage was limited.

We will enjoy the hum of industrial fans for a few days and have a few missing sections of drywall, but it could have been so much worse.

While the husband dealt with plumbers and such, I did manage to get a few fun things….


Makings of a button bracelet, a peyote stitch needle case kit, beading mat, covered bead tray (the splurge of the day), a red/white Christmas wall hanging kit, a snowman table runner pattern and some great snowy fabric and a too-cute-to-resist chicken pin cushion 🙂

There were several other things I picked up and ultimately put down, but I’m happy with my spoils 🙂

Many of the vendors will return in January so I will have another chance. LOL
