I have been spending all my time the last few days glued to the Weather Channel as Hurricane Harvey attacks and is re-attacking the Texas Gulf Coast. Out of 7 siblings 5 still live in Texas. In Dallas, and between Houston and Corpus Christi. My heart is so heavy seeing their struggles, and worrying over their safety. Many of them are safe.
All the states sending help and people leaving the safety of their homes to come to the middle of all this disaster to help. Many of whom we will never know their names or be able to thank them enough for all their support.
What do you do when you are in a worried about serious things that you face? I sat with the TV on weather channel, my Diet Coke, and sewed. I did finish a lap quilt that I started years ago. Then started on Christmas. Tea towels, aprons to match. Then cleaned. And cooked. Zucchini Bread……..and Pizza
Yes, we had to have a little taste. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMmm
Please keep everyone on the Gulf Coast in your thoughts and prayers as Hurricane Harvey heads their way. Where it is estimated to reach land fall is expecting water surges of 12-15 feet. Then the expected approx. 30 inches of rain when it stalls. Praying for minimum damage and no loss of live for the entire coast line.
It seems like I can post my phone, but not my computer. It’s been going on for a while and I didn’t realize it. Been keeping busy with different things so here’s a quick overview. Umbrella re-made.
I took an old umbrella apart and used as a pattern. Was easier than I thought. Next made a pillow for my Migrating Geese Gone Green.
Got zucchini bread made and in the freezer.
And lastly I purchased an embroidery design and started stitching it out. This is design #1. The Wolf.
This is condensed for everyone and I couldn’t remember all I wrote for the last 3 weeks.
Having issues publishing anything.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I am. Today we are starting the day off with new roof, yard work completed, and oven cleaned.. Now I am free to enjoy some sewing. First of all I have something to show off. My daughter in law wanted to make something special for some of their friends who are coming into the state for a karate seminar. She decided on pillows for them. This is her design and she did the work. Represents their Karate Gi and black belt with their names embroidered on the belt. She did a great job and now my son needs one for himself. I enjoy seeing someone create something special for someone..
I have 3 blocks completed on my quilt from our trip last year to the South West. Coming Together quite nicely. These are each 21×21 or 21×17. Not sure if I want to make them individual mini quilts and hang them as a series or to put them together as a whole quilt. I have 1 more set of 4 to finish. I will have to figure it out.
Any thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
