It's been a busy coouple of weeks and unfortunately I didn't get a lot of stitching done. Last Sunday, we (meaning my husband) took out our carpeting in the living room. What a job! We have wood flooring underneath but it's not in great shape so now we need to decide weather to refinish these floors or put in new wood flooring. Not sure what we'll do but I know that I won't put carpeting back in.
This past Tuesday we had very strong storms come through our area and our village lost over 1000 trees on the parkways, not to mention what residents lost on their own property. We lost a 30 foot tree on our parkway and fortunately it did not hit our home, however several of our neighbors were not so lucky and had damage to their homes and cars. There were no injuries that we know of (thank goodness). It looked like a war zone on Wednesday morning and there is still a LOT of stuff to be picked up by the tree services but we are slowly getting back to normal. We were without power for over 48 hours so no stitching (need my magnifier and light) and even though we have a generator it needed to run the sump pump and refrigerator. We are so very very grateful that we are all OK and that our home wasn't damaged and are ready for things to get back to normal.
On to stitching stuff. I did manage to finish this little LHN -- Bringing home the Tree. I think the little dog in this one looks like a Scottie.
This afternoon I'm going to Inspired Needle for an afternoon of stitching and shopping (can't wait) I'm hoping to get the new LHN sampler that just came out. It looks wonderful.
I will leave you with a picture of my Wheaten Scottie (Fiona) just relaxing in my stitching chair in the family room. What a life my dogs have:))))
As always, thank you so much for your nice comments and for stopping by. I so appreciate each and every one.
Have a great week.
