I have several of Jeannie's cross stitch projects in my house. I can tell you that up close they look just as lovely, if not more so, as the one she got a blue ribbon on today! Great Job Jeannie!!!! Great job on the crotchet too!

Has been here also Sheri. It's okay with me for we haven't been getting what they have been forecasting for us but I'm not liking the 90 and humid we will be getting after it stops.

I just worry about the river. I'm a little edgy after the flooding a couple years ago. Last week already the drainage creek that runs past every road out of my house was up to the road and over it in a few places. It came back down considerably in the past few days but the ground, I'm sure, is totally soaked and not able to take in any of this today.

We had 1.3 inches this morning in a short time, but I'm sure most of it soaked in; the ground is so parched.

Jeannie, nice work. Hope the premium $$ is decent. Never had anything entered in open class at State Fair, just took some beef steers when I was in 4-H.

Congratulations Jeannie, beautiful work! My DSM did a lot of cross stitch and crewel work and I have numerous pieces. Her cross stitch looked as good on the back as it did in front, it was perfect. Glad you got a first and a blue ribbon!

Windy , and more rain coming, but it's hot hot hot.

Nope. Flash flood warnings, lightening, thunder, rain, doorbells ringing and no body there, I do so HATE this weather. Ed gets mad at me cause I get so worked up but I have SEEN what tornadoes and bad storms can do FIRST HAND and it ain't pretty.

We also had a rough night, weather-wise! The tornado siren went off! Fortunately it looks like nothing got hit, at least around here. Lots of rain, thunder and lightning though.

Thanks for all the congrats *Blush*

I have already started on a smocked jumper with a blouse for next year. The jumper is red courderoy. I am using a smocking pattern of autumn leaves for the front of the jumper.

Yes...has been bad here too. Rain is heavy and almost constant with plenty of LOUD thunderboomies and lightning. I unplugged for a while, it's calm for the next 1/2 or so then tornado warnings again until 2 AM....I'm right in line with Meezers and Doris on this though (so they had it the same I expect).....looks like so far Jeannine probably had it the worst...sure hope they were tucked in at home before 43 was closed. 6-7 inches of rain in 2 hrs. on the NE side (NS traffic couldn't pass because the drainage couldn't contain the excess fast enough, lots of thoroughfare flooding; huge sinkhole in NE downtown (with an Escalade in it). Has anyone heard from Jeannine or Meezers? Anna, you must have had some of it it too?

Dawg thinks I'm nuts: everytime it lets up a little, I take him out and say, "go potty...go potty....go potty",....he looks at me and says, "you're crazy, it's still raining", turns around and heads back to for the door.

Yeah, got a little rain, and it is still thundering and lightning, but I think the worst is more towards Madison. I'm gonna go crash. Big Grin

Congratulations on the red and blue ribbons at the fair, Jeannie, your needlework is beautiful! Your weather sounds WILD!!!

We just have some strong straight line winds tonight. This morning while it was calm, we picked up broken hay bales from our neighbor's field, and when I saw a mouse running out from under my pile of hay, I went after it with the pitchfork. Now the pitchfork had a bend in it between the metal part with the tines, and the wooden handle, a sort of sleeve of lighter weight metal. It had been bent for some time but since I don't usually lift heavy forkfulls of hay, it was holding together, until I stabbed at the mouse. OOPS, the thing is not supposed to bend that way! Mouse escaped too.

So, we decided to drive the Dodge pickup to town to buy a new pitchfork, because it needs to run every so often to keep the battery charged, the AC seals from drying out, and the engine lubricated. Fritz, the Jack Russell Terrier we babysit for our daughter had been telling me for days that there was something in the front of the truck. Yeah, sure. Well, the Nose knows and he was right. Hubby raised the hood and there was a packrat nest, built from the insulation that had once been on the firewall and the underside of the hood. We cleaned that out, looked for damaged wires, found none and went to town in it. Hubby watched the gauges, nothing abnormal. We ordered new insulation from the dealership after buying the new pitchfork and having lunch. I also picked up a Martha Washington geranium for $1.75 that had been $10.79. End of season sale, and it doesn't look that bad.

Oh golly, it's almost dark I need to get the sheets off the line and onto the bed. They'll be dry, our humidity runs around 10-20%.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
