Toilet fixed, Afghan finished 1.3.2012

I hope that everyone made it safely into the new year and has gotten used to writing 2012 instead of 2011.  I admit that I'm still having issues with that even though I must write it twenty times a day.

No partying on my end.  I had to work all weekend through.  New Year's Eve I made it until 11 PM before I put my ear plugs in to get to sleep.

The toilet is finally fixed.  Whoohoo!  Was that a pain in my ass!  Yesterday afternoon there was a leak on the outside of the commode, but that has gone away.  Last night the tank wouldn't fill up, but that seems to have gone away too.  I might have some adjusting to do, but everything is fine now.


I had to borrow a large adjustable wrench to get that plastic nut off.  If it wasn't for that, I would have the toilet up and running Saturday night.


Tada....all new guts installed. :)


Today I finished putting the last of the 120 squares together.  All that's left to do now is to put a border around the whole afghan, then that's it.  I'm really liking it.  The other side looks completely different.  I'll have to take a photo of it.   The afghan is huge and very heavy. 

 


It's almost time for a new project....or maybe I'll make another one different color, a different type of yarn?
