The familiar Sawtooth Star is the second block in Barbara Brackman's Civil War block-of-the-week. (A link to her blog is in my right column.). I'm very protective of my limited "conversational" CW repro fabrics, but I took a deep breath and cut a strip of my horses for this block. Why am I saving them? For a special project, I suppose, and this one qualifies.
Cleaning around our old chest freezer (see previous post) led to a fact-finding trip to our local Sears store Saturday morning. And a purchase.
Next week a new, smaller, Energy Star-rated, chest freezer will be delivered to our home.
The Sears guys will move the old freezer to the garage and bring in the new one. Then we'll contact our local energy company who will send someone to haul away the old freezer. We'll get one rebate because we bought an Energy Star appliance, and we'll get another rebate because we're recycling our old, still-working appliance that's not energy efficient.
Isn't it funny how one thing can lead to another, and you're suddenly doing something you hadn't even thought about 48 hours ago?
