TTMT Video

TTMT: 2/26/20 – No video this week.

The video recorder on my new computer is not working and my old computer’s battery is completely dead, so no video.  I hope to figure something out for next week.

The last couple of weeks have been challenging.  We found out that the mobile home park we live has been sold and a lot of rumors started about what their plans were for us.  They finally brought around a new lease that tells us more.  They are going to make some changes – rent increase (which we expected) but it wasn’t too bad.  The plan to pave the streets (badly needed), have individual garbage pickup instead of two dumpsters on the premises, and will try to get city permission to add more trailers to the field behind us.  All of those things we can live with.  Tbey also expect some things from the tenants (keeping junk out of the yards, pressure washing your home at least once a year, no cars without license plates, only 2 cars allowed at each home, and a couple of other things.  We have very little to do to be up to their standards so it wasn’t as bad as we feared, and actually sounds like it will be a nicer place when all is said and done.

Then we got the news that Tim’s brother died and of course that was hard on my hubby.  We went to the funeral on Saturday.

As for crafting, I have managed to get a few things done.  I finished 2 quilt tops that were started 5 or 6 years ago (pinwheels).  Then, in an effort to clear out some of my jelly roll strips, I made 3 new baby quit tops (2 jelly roll race and one rail fence).  Jewels and Jennifer O, would either of you want those 3 tops for Linus?  I would be thrilled to send them.

I talked with Jennifer R. and will be sending her Garrick’s Sesame Street quilt and a few other quilt tops to be quilted.  Woo hoo.

So here are some pics of what I’ve done the past couple of weeks.

  1. Oh my goodness, lady, what a lot you have going on! I am glad you don’t have to move and that it sounds like that will be a good thing, too.

    I am sorry for you and your sweet husband’s loss. Please know I’m sending love and hugs from far away.

    I am always happy to take any quilt top you’d like to share and I’m happy to share with Jewells (of course!). Big hugs!

  2. All those tops are lovely! I was going to suggest you send them to Jennifer, and it looks like that is what you are doing, so that worked out perfectly! The way she is cranking through donated tops for linus she will get to them way faster than I will, lol.

    I am glad to hear that the changes for your neighborhood are going to be mainly for the good. The park where my sister lives right now has the individual trash receptacles for each lot and it works out well.

    I’m sorry to hear about Tim’s brother. You are right, that was a lot to be having to deal with in just a couple of weeks. I’m glad you were able to counter some of it with crafting!

  3. So sorry to hear about your loss. Sending prayers to your family. Love all the tops you’ve been finishing. I’m sure it’s helping you to sew.

    Take care of yourself.
