Wow, has it really been 3 months since my last blog post? It honestly feels like forever... We had an unfortunate little incident just after the new year. A huge hail storm passed through our little town. Normally I am not one that scares easily, but that night I was pacing through the house nervously and scared! The sound of thunder and hail hitting against the window got me completely rattled. It really sounded like all the windows was breaking, so I frantically walked from one room to the next checking for damage.
View around our home the next morning
After the storm had passed which was at about 1 am, and it was just raining I decided that I could finally go to bed. Unfortunately during the hail storm some of the tiles on our roof shifted and some damaged and large amounts of water leaked through (as my luck would have it) in my sewing room. Murphy's Law I guess, the only thing that got damaged was my laptop, it was completely drenched in water. I was so upset, I only had it for about 5 or 6 months and was still brand new. It was quite a struggle explaining it to our insurance, and it took some convincing and even some arguments to have it replaced. After many phone calls and a lot patience, I now have a new laptop. It was such a relief since we do not have the means to just open our purses to buy a new one on demand.
After I got my emails set up again I received quite a few messages from many you following my blog, some concerned messages and even some just saying 'hi, you are missed'. Thank you for that, it means a lot. I am going to make some time today to reply to each of those emails.
Regarding our 'Anything Goes Mondays' linky party, my subscription to inlinkz has expired during this time and I am now unsure weather or not to carry on this year. I have enjoyed hosting the linkup but I have been rethinking it for some time, it just felt like my blog has lost its 'personal touch' and I was sharing less and less of my own quilting... So for the time being or for this year at least I am going to put 'Anything Goes Mondays' to rest.
I have been busy in my sewing room during this time of absence, and I will share it with all of you soon! For now I am just happy to be back!!!
