Home Repairs

Pearls & Lace
Good afternoon, dear readers!
You know its not going to be a good day when you wake-up to take the dog out & your feet squish on the carpet.  It turns out that the water line to the icemaker on my refridgerator had a pin hole in it.  Well, Jim fixed that then we discovered that the water valve on it was cracked.  A new valve is almost $200.  We shut off the water to the fridge and decided to save up for a new one rather than fork over the money to repair a 15 year-old appliance.
I am still steam cleaning the carpet as the leak had spread to the doorway of our bedroom and totally soaked the carpet.  Needless to say, I got ZERO tatting done today.  Bummer.
Here's hoping that tomorrow will be a much better day with no wet, squishy carpet or appliances to fix!  Hope your day has gone better than mine.  Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!


  1. oh goodness, repairs are no fun at all. Best of luck tomorrow.

  2. Hi, Rachel. While I didn't get any tatting done today, I did get some done over the weekend using your Poinsettia Earrings. Thank you for sharing your pattern. I hope tomorrow is a better day with some time for tatting.

  3. Ack! Those squishy clean-ups are the worst!

  4. Not nice to walk on a wet carpet when you get out of bed, hope you get it all cleaned up and will soon get a new replacement.
