The annual meeting of our small mutual water company was held today. There was not a quorum so no business was transacted. The mutual water company serves 40 households and all members are requested to attend the July meeting. Two of the directors were out of town, thus the lack of a quorum. Three directors showed up but no members.

Robert, the volunteer president, has often joked, “If we want people to show up at our meetings we should turn off the water on the day the meeting is held.” Things have been running smoothly for the past several months so we figure that everyone stayed home and took a shower to cool down on this hot day.

My block for the day is a shower. I don’t know if you can see the “water” streaming out from the head. I stitched lines with white thread. I removed the paper foundation from the block before I added the machine stitching. There is a foundation for the block available for printing out. Click on the small graphic below to find a full-size 4-inch foundation to use. There is a quarter inch seam allowance all around.

It reminds me of that Seventies motto, "Shower with your steady"!
