Making Progress...

 Lots of sewing!  It may not look like it but I have a ton of these done.  I haven't counted them but I have a bunch of them ready to sew into rows. 
 A few hundred sets of 2, ready to be sewn into larger strips. 
 I also finished 3 Orange Peel blocks.  They still need to be trimmed to size. 
 3 more Windmills...
 I know this is a short post but it's actually going on 2am.  I'm tired and have to get up early.  We will be replacing our hot water heater in the morning as soon as the hardware store opens.  Our hot water heater started leaking and I'll be honest, I just got sick from the thoughts of having to shell out money for a new one.  So sick that when Richard stopped by the hardware store I sat in the Jeep.  I didn't even want to get out.  So I snapped this photo as I sat in the Jeep....  This is our local hardware store that has been in business for over 100 years. 
 Anyway, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.  Thank you Lord!  Come to find out it was still under warranty!!!  How great is that!!!  The downside is that they had to order one so I've had to put up with a leaky water heater for a few days.  So in the morning Richard is going to pick it up and install it in the morning right after he returns the old one.  :)  See....something good came out of a bad thing.

Yay for warranties! How often do we worry about something only to find out that it turns out to not be as bad as we were worrying?

Refresh my memory please: are you hand appliqueing those orange peels?

you have a lot of projects going - good for you and making progress too. sorry you needed a new hot water heater but they are one of the cheaper "appliances" that normally need replacing now and then, for me it is the dish washer - it is making the weirdest noises for the last several weeks and it is old - but it is one of those things that you really do not have to replace immediately so I'm sure we will get a new one one of these days.

Tumblers are really coming along.
I love that hardware store. Our "hometown" hardware stores have pretty much been squeezed out by the big box stores. I miss them.
So glad the water heater was still warrantied. I have to tell you that for decades, whenever we have car trouble, dear hubby dreads taking it in--sure it is going to be an expensive transmission job. We have yet to have a transmission be the problem, after 37 years. : )
