First, I would like to ask any of you if you stitch any of the charts I give away and would like to share a picture of them with me...please send them to my email address as I would love to post them on my blog.
WOW!!! This has been one week around here to remember! Some of you are probably feeling the same way. We didn't have any power for over 4 days. Some people in our area are just now getting it back on. Trees are down everywhere. It is truly a disaster in some places. I praise the Lord we didn't have more problems than just the power. It really makes you stop and think about what we are really blessed to have and also if there were a nationwide emergency in this country, what could we and would we do. I know our cell phones didn't work for a while here either. The Lord says we are not to be fearful and to put our trust in Him. In times like this our faith is truly tested. We prayed a lot. I had never even heard of a "derecho" storm before last week. The description of a "derecho" storm is: widespread, long-lived, straight-line windstorm that is associated with a fast-moving band of severe thunderstorms. There wasn't even any rain associated with the storm...just terrible wind which came in a second. Over 80 MPH here in our area. OK...enough about that! We are in air conditioning now...our daughters tree is being cut up in her backyard, taking 3 days to cut that one up!! It is huge. It blew it over out of the ground! I said enough right...lol
I hope you are enjoying your summer. Going on vacations, spending time with families and just enjoying this wonderful time of year. I just love the summer. Green grass, flowers, long days, cooler nights, cookouts, swimming and on and on! I hope you are doing some stitching in between all your running around. It is time to get ready for fall believe that or not. It is just around the corner. Boy, it is just like my Mama used to say, time flies when you get older, faster and faster! That is the TRUTH! It seems you get up in the morning and then you are getting ready for bed again.
I have another free chart for you. Enjoy your stitching and just please don't sell my designs or kit them.
Have a wonderful week and until next time.
