Drying out…

After 26.81 inches of rainfall in 36 hours earlier this week, we’re drying out and enjoying a sunny weekend in Pensacola. Although there is a lot of damage around the county from the flooding, I am fortunate to not have suffered any damage to my house or neighborhood. I did have a shallow lake in my backyard which is now gone. There is a lot of damage to many roads (45 closed) and I’ve not been able to go anywhere the last few days without having to take detours. That’ll probably be true for many months to come.

Not being able to leave the house for a few days gave me some extra stitching time this week (luckily my power was only out in the middle of the night during the worst of the rainfall). I finished up this fun project I’m calling Soduko Delight. It’ll be offered as a class through Shining Needle. Next up is picking out alternate colorways – one of my favorite things to do! Membership in the Shining Needle Society is free and you can join anytime. Let me know if you need info.
Colorwaves has made a big splash – the response has been tremendous and huge orders have been placed. If you’re still considering it or haven’t seen it, scroll down to the next posting for more info.
Off to play with thread! Enjoy the weekend…
