Back to normal (mostly)
Well, we all survived our little wet adventure. I don't know if my brand new cordless electric lawn mower made it, though. I'm afraid to look. The high water line is definitely above the floor of my shed, but not by much so I'm hoping the wheels were high enough to keep the batteries out of the water. The trailer skirting was blown off almost all the way around, but I think we only lost a piece or two. I'm not looking forward to putting it back. Here's a picture of a few of our neighbors, out enjoying the day. We got a bit of a kick out of them swimming through our yard.

And here's what it looked like the next day. What a difference, huh? Ah, the joys of living on the water! I wish now I hadn't left at low tide, since it turned out the worst was past by then and the whole thing set me back a bit, since we decided to stay at a motel rather than wade through the water again that evening to get back to the house. I keep telling myself better safe than sorry -- and I'm not going put my children in potential danger to save a few bucks. Still, it's annoying because I always over-react. But the one time I don't will be the time something really bad happens!

Enough about my weather woes. I've got some cross stitch pictures to share. I've finished up with the second round of my rotation and am currently working on Victory again. But since I'm so behind in getting pictures up, I'll show you Ballet Pigs.

I'm going to be tweaking my rotation once again. There are a few designs that have been screaming at me and I'm going to give in and start them. They are all HAEDs and are: Red Dragon, Crown of Creation, Calling the Crows, and Beauty and the Beast. I was planning to take Ballet Pigs out, but after seeing it anew, I'm not so sure. I'm also considering taking Sea of Roses out, since I have two other active Selena Fenech's. I had hoped to keep my active projects limited to 21, but I just don't think I'm going to be able to stick to that. I'm also planning to start The Red Thread, which I plan to give to a friend who has provided some heavy duty assistance to me and my family on more than one occassion.

And finally a finish! Woo hoo! Probably my only one for 2008. This is the Stars and Moon Baby Sampler my daughter and I did for her babysitter's daughter. I substituted Victoria Clayton silk floss for the DMC. The picture does not do the colors justice, they are incredibly vibrant! I'm looking forward to getting it back from the framer so we can give it to her.
