1. About 10 days ago, my basement flooded. Only about 4 inches before we got it under control but still there was damage. I did learn that my cat carrier floats. That was a bright spot. I spent about 4 hours in the water trying to get needlework stuff to higher ground. Thank heavens for the ironing board and a couple of craft tables. However some still couldn't be saved. My stitching bags went thru the washer and dryer and are actually still usable. Yea, another bright spot. I am still going thru everything (and will be for awhile) to see what can be recovered. IF it isn't dry now, it's too late.
Word of warning, don't keep charts in paper boxes, don't trust those individual plastic envelopes (water goes right inside), keep things up and off the floor. Plastic bags don't keep the water out either.
I missed groundhog day so here it is:
Happy Birthday to my groundhog (my son).
( I did call him yesterday even if I forgot the blog)
And now the SAL
Here's what I have been trying to finish and did, the day before the deadline.
This is for a contest within DAR.
First grouping of names are my direct ancestors
2nd grouping are relatives
lastly are my parents, my son and myself as the
current generations of veterans.
This is a WIP that I dug out and decided I wanted done.
Progress as of 2-2-2019
Gobble has not gotten a lot of attention
Not too much further.
He was a minor distraction to the big piece above
Stitching the Standard
She has not been touched for awhile due to the other big piece having a due date.
I will be going back to her soon . It's mostly piecemeal areas now.
and another SAL
I never seem to remember if it the full moon, new moon or what so I decided this year,
I would do it at the end of the month and post within a couple of days.
Please check out the other stitchers in the main SAL
(the every 3 weeks SAL as I call it)
Have a warm day !
