Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Red

Great choice by Angela for the colour this month, I do have lots of reds in my stash but not many plains they're all patterned but that hasn't stopped me sewing up four red cats for my post today

another six will be "in production" ready for this coming Saturday.

This is a brief post as we had a slight mishap on Saturday evening with the plumbing set up in our laundry. A small piece of replacement board at the bottom of the wall by the laundry tub had to be replaced and John would then paint  it,  he decided to nail this in place then said there was hot water over the floor and possibly I had a leak from my new machine - not the case  -  he had nailed straight through the hot water pipe! Major mop up with water in the laundry and running down into the garage, emergency call to a plumber who suggested just isolating and turning off the hot water system and switching off the heater in the garage. As the charge for an emergency call during weekend hours was considerable
 compared to weekday call out we opted to wait until this morning. Plumber arrived and because of the position of the piping behind the walls he had to remove a piece of the
 plaster board which had just been replaced and newly painted!!! I have had better days!

Okay, after my moan I am now linking up with Angela and Rainbow Scrap Happy girls and I'm going visiting now to take a peek at all the red link ups

Oh no! Of all the bad luck. Hopefully the damage is repaired and you can get back to life as normal again. It will be a funny story to tell someday though.

Murphy's Law at work ... Sorry you had all that fuss!

Great red cats!

I love your red cats, and patterned red is so much more exciting than plain red for cat fur.

Just love those red, blushing cats; I think that dark background really sets them off so well...hugs, Julierose

I, too, have found plumbing messes have cut into my fabric purchases and quilting time. Your red cats glow...no problem with photography there!

Oh NO! What terrible luck.
Love, love, LOVE your red kittens : )

Oh no! Never good when you have leaks that cause water to go everywhere. I hope the headache is all fixed now and you can relax with some kittens and mice in the sewing room.

I feel your pain. We had to call generic Roto Rooter company to clean out septic tanks because it was starting to back up into all the drains in our old farm house.

Oh, I LOVE your kitties. I keep telling myself I have to make some every time I look at yours.
