New Hipster block

Hi there everyone!

We've been sitting here with no electricity for 3 days.... eventually it was put back on last night late. Some wonderful person at the municipality decided we haven't paid our account and ordered it to be cut off. 
WE HAVE A PRE-PAID METER!!! It took phoning the MP of our district to get this problem sorted out.
I wonder who's going to buy me new fruit, veg and meat that I had to throw out when the freezer defrosted??
I'm not joking, IF I had the funds, I would move to a new country!! where common sense exists!!


Anyway, I wanted to show you the pattern I was working on a while back. I finished it off this morning and it's in the shop with the other Hipster Patterns.

Meet the Hipster Pineapple
The pattern measures 14x18" (36x47cm)

Here are some of the older Hipster patterns
They can be found in the Animals >>>> Hipster Animals category of the shop.

this pineapple is adorable. oh my goodness. absolutely someone should pay for the food you had to throw out if it was totally their fault. I am sorry you had to go through this. Hope that your weekend is a good one.

We had a freezer die on us and as it was out in the garage, we didn’t realize it until the smell hit us!
We lost a whole side of beef. Fortunately, I kept the receipts from the farmer and the meat cutting/packing and got reimbursed for the loss through our homeowner’s property insurance company. We are in the US, so I don’t know if that would work the same way for you.

Darling patterns!

So glad your power is back on! I've had the same thought about relocation. Great hipster patterns!

Oh I love the Pineapple!!!

I used to work for an electric utility in Florida, so here are a couple of ideas:
* it's customary for the utility to pay you for lost food if it's their fault. Obviously it is their fault, but they will need to agree with you on this before they'll reimburse you for your losses.
* if there's no luck with the utility, you can try going through your homeowner's/renter's insurance.

Of course I'm in the States, so I don't know if any of this will apply to you. It's definitely worth a try, tho and I also recommend that you start trying for reimbursement ASAP, too...the quicker, the better!
Good luck and I'm sorry you had to go thru such a nightmare.
