Happy Mother's Day and updated blog

A great big wish for all the Mother's out there. I spent the day with my daughter, Deanna, and grandkids, Christopher and Anna. It was a real nice day. She grilled pork chops, and added potatoes and beans. Great Day.
Friday night we had bad rains storms come our way, with hail, tornadoes and flooding. My apartment complex and the surrounding neighborhood was flooded after 7-9 inches of rain. Thank goodness, the sun came out on Saturday and dried up everything. I got water in the back floorboard of my car, as well as many other neighbors. What a night.
I did stitch and got a few stitches in several of my WIPs. Here are pictures of my progress for the week.     The ABC Samplings Book - With My Needle
                                               ABCs of Aging Artfully Lizzie*Kate
 Only have a few pumkins left to backstitch and I am finished with this kitchen towel
 Snowman and friends Christmas Stocking. Gold Collection kit.
 Summer Season of Growth Pillow Littlehouse Needleworks.

All are coming along nicely! The kids are growinng up fast. We had hail, also. We opened the door to see the storm and hail came rolling off the porch and into the house. No flooding. Hope your vehicle dries out for you.

Good progress on your work, and glad all the damage you got was some flooding instead of the tornados and hail.

Love the new picture up top! I always lose the will to live with back stitch so well done on the pumpkins. Love how the alphabet book is coming.

Must have been a scary night, glad the sun came the next day.

We were in that storm system too but didn't get hit nearly as badly as you.

I hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day.

Your stitching is beautiful as always.
