Since it has been brutally cold in these parts of my world, one of the water pipes in my humble abode decided to burst and in a few minutes, torrential downpours similar to Niagara Falls proceeded to fall in my livingroom.
Holy Moley!!!! Water, water everywhere pouring down from the ceiling. Lucky we were home when it happened or else I can not imagine what I would have found or not have found.
Now we are in the drying stages......This weekend I will clean up and throw out many things.... Happy New Year!!!! But, I am thinking very positively, we were home when it happened, pipe burst prior to entering the wall so there is no breaking of the walls to find the leak, no water damage to electronics or cross stitch stash.
Thought I would blog a bit in order to keep the momentum going.
Even though drama happened, that did not stop me from stash ordering. Holly, one of my favorite Mirabilia cross stitch patterns was on sale at 123stitch and I had to order it. Two days into the new year I have purchased Mirabilia's Christmas Flourishes, Easter Fairy and Holly. Luck had it that I found a few stitchers who were looking to sell their items. Most of the time I love trading/buying from trading albums because it is a win/win situation. A few years ago all I did was trade items. Stopped trading for a long while because it was getting out of control. It became a job just to log in what I sent and what I was expecting. Little by little I am starting to check stitcher trading lists when I see them.
If you are looking for sales this month check the following shoppes:
If anyone has a trade/sale list and wishes me to look at it and/or list it on my blog, leave a comment on this post with your trading list url and I will place a link to it.
