Tula Tuesday: blocks 81-83

Thank goodness I finished these…


…before I did THIS:


Ooops. Sunday morning I slipped in our kitchen and (mildly) sprained my ankle. For real. I know. It’s ridiculous. I’m ridiculous. It’s not too bad, and should heal fairly quickly.

As opposed to our poor house. All of your good thoughts, prayers, and happy vibes worked. The insurance inspector came out on Friday as planned, and DID declare our roof a total loss. So rather than dealing with spot repairs at our own expense, we will be getting an entire new roof for barely more $$, one that will be under a nice fresh warranty. We also need at least 6 windows completely replaced, a few more screens, all the gutters, a lot of the house repainted, and all new patio furniture. Oh, and my 2 garden gnomes also have hail holes! The inspector even put them on the claim. We’re now waiting to hear back from the insurance company about how much they’ll authorize for all that work. The hardest part is going to be finding a roofer to do the work- they are ALL backed up. We know at least our 4 closest neighbors need new roofs as well. Maybe we can get a group rate…

Meanwhile, the blocks.

Block 81: raccoons in tiny pieces.

I love it.

Block 82: deep blue with some fox field horses.

I love how I accidentally made that one horse look like it has the longest body ever…

Block 83: parisville and polkadots.

Looks like I was on a serious purple kick this week. (Shocker.)

  1. Yay for a new roof! Hopefully it will be a start of things going right for you from now on!!

  2. I love your tula blocks…..I really need to get back to mine. I have done 12 I think and you tempt me to go back and give some more a go. πŸ™‚

  3. Hooray, you’re getting a new roof! Here’s hoping that the next few weeks are calm and full of nice weather so you and your house can get fixed up without any more calamities.

    • AND so that I can do my around the world blog hop post! I have the next 2 days off from work (Jewish holiday) so I plan to sew and blog… -Sam

  4. I love your block #81. I’m a sucker for that adorable racoon fabric. And purple. Excellent block!

  5. Can we blame the rain on your kitchen floor for you slipping? So glad you are getting a new roof, and the blocks are fabulous as always. Watching your quilt progress makes me think I need to hunt up the book next time I’m near a bookstore.

    • I tried valiantly to find a way to blame the fall on the chaos, but I think I’m just a klutz. My foot just slipped out from under me- hardwood floors- and I went down hard and fast 😦

      It’s a great book- I totally recommend it!

  9. I particularly love the raccoon block. It’s one of my all time favorite Tula prints.

    Yay! Yay! Yay! So many yays about the insurance and your house finally being fixed! I’m so relieved for you.

    But oh dear Sam! You are having a bummer of a year, aren’t you? I hope the ankle heals up quickly.

  10. oh no, sorry to hear about your accident! I hope it all heals up soon. the Tula blocks are looking good, I stalled at 2 blocks!
