Well, we survived Hurricane Ike! At my house in Richmond, which is SW of Houston, we had 70 mph winds, but really not much damage. My house is just over 1 year old, and was built to post-Katrina codes, so we faired well. That combined with the fact that because it’s a new neighborhood, there are no big trees to fall and do damage! So, no tree damage, no lost shingles. Our only “casualty” was a hibiscus bush that looked like it exploded, but other than that, no problems.
I stitched a bit over the last week or so. I’ve been off work due to the storm, and I was able to start and finish a complete project! I stitched this Shepherd’s Bush needle roll during the Ike days the last few days. I’m very pleased how it turned out. This is my 4th needle roll to date, and I can tell a vast improvement in my hemstitching skills!
On a completely different note, my husband (just in the last 5 minutes) alerted me that he has FINALLY installed the garage door opener at our house! Woo Hoo!!! His deadline was the birth of our new baby, so he’s exactly 1 month ahead of schedule!
Happy Stitching to all!!!
