Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day nineteen of that project.
Oh I love this block. How clever this funny little building is. The spigot out the side is hysterical.
It’s called WOOD’S PLUMBING because there was a plumber that lived right down the street from us until just a few years ago who’s name was Woods. He was a very good plumber and a really nice guy. Always had a smile and laughed easily.
My late husband thought a lot of him and when we built our home he and Scott (my husband) did the plumbing. His wife wore stylish hats and he always had a poodle.
This block made me think of my husband too because he treated our town’s water for 32 years. I thought this would make a perfect water treatment building.
Think how this building would fit into a Dr. Suess story. A hose could attach to the spigot and water could come out and put out fires.
Can you tell four of my young grandchildren live with me?
