June Blog Update

At last the Brazos River here in Fort Bend County, Texas is going down. The highest was 54.81 and it is now down to 52.19ft. Flood stage is 45ft, so you can see way we have had so many flooded roads and neighborhoods. My neighborhood levy has held and we have not had any street or area flooding, thank goodness. Here is our main bridge over the Brazos River now and what it usually looks like.
Thanks for all the nice words, prayers, and concerns.
Since, I stayed in a lot, I have been stitching away. I have stitched on several of my 15 rotation this last couple of weeks, yea. Here is the progress on my WIPs;
Snowman and Friends Christmas Stocking – Gold Collection Kit
               A kit is not my favorite to stitch, but I put a few stitches each time it comes up in my rotation and I will finish it someday.

        “June” Calendar Girl Series-Littlehouse Needleworks
This is a favorite series of mine. I have made pillows with several of the months.
 Texas, ropin’ and ridin’”–The 12 Days of Texas Christmas Series -Redbird Designs
Another favorite, as this will made the sixth one of the 12 to stitch
 “My House” #1 Hometown Holiday Series-Little House Needworks
Again, another favorite series. This is my third of 11 that has been designed so far. Dianne from Littlehouse Needworks says that she will keep designing for this series as long as she has ideas. yea.
       “Meg March” from Little Women-Brookes Books
What pretty colors these designs have. I am stitching the four women for my niece who loves them.

 The Button Up Birdies #2, February Whiskey Jack, by Cathy Jean-The Victoria Sampler
This will be the fifth bird I am stitching in this series.
       Christmas Animals – Heaven And Earth
This has a lot of confetti stitches, slow but sure I will finish stitching it.
  “L” Lace - Stitcher’s  Alphabet – Brookes Book
This is being stitched on an afghan. I am down to a little white background and then the beading.
Ruler with School Bus by Jeanette Crews Designs, Inc.
I forgot to take a progress picture, but I am now stitching on the third bus.
