August blog update

What a week this has been. Hurricane Harvey came ashore. Houston and surrounding areas were hit with rain and rain. I live in Richmond, Fort Bend County, TX. We were hit with rain and flooding all week. The Brazos River comes within a few miles from my subdivision. We have a levee which held, thank goodness. The Brazos River-Richmond Fort Bend County crested at 55.19'(flood stage is 45') causing flooding all around us. We had to leave our home on Monday and only made it back home on Friday. Thanks to the levee holding, we did not get any water or flooding in our subdivision. Our entrance to our subdivision had only a small part of the road to get in or out. Today the sun is out and we are trying to put our lives and homes back together. There is still a lot of flooding around which will take many days to go down. Please continue your prayers for all here in Texas.
I have been stitching this week while waiting for the rain and flooding to go away. Here is the progress on the WIPs I stitched on. Also, did finish one that I made into a greeting card.

Boy, you really have been stitching up a storm!
Love your Sue Hillis ornaments. I saw them today at the LNS and almost bought it!
Your other work is lovely, as usual!

I have been wondering if you were ok and have been watching for your posts. I will continue to keep Texas in my prayers. Love your stitching!

Well done on your stitching. Beautiful! So relieved you were not flooded out.

Very happy to hear that you were spared damage from Harvey! My thoughts continue to be with those less fortunate. Do you have a recommendation for the charity that will do the most good for the community? As always, your projects are amazing!

What a relief that your home wasn't damaged by the flooding and that you are all safe. I hope that your stitching helped to take your mind off the dreadful weather and the damage it was causing.

I'm so glad to hear you are ok, Joyce. I turn to cross stitching when things get overwhelming too, you've done some lovely work! I have been keeping the folks in Texas in my prayers (that includes you!)

Joyce: I am sad that this is happening in Texas, I would not wish this kind of weather on anyone.
I will continue to keep Texas in my daily prayers.
Love all your stitching, that Cardinal is amazing as al, the stitching is.

So glad you're okay. Your stitching looks wonderful!

Mary said...

So glad to hear your home was spared, it must have been so nerve wracking to be away from your home most of the week and wondering what was happening.

Your stitching is wonderful but I have to say I'm drawn most to the Christmas animals.

What a blessing your community was okay, but still upsetting to see all the destruction it left behind.
Your card is sweet and you've been very busy, great progress on everything!

I'm so glad y'all made it through without damage! Your projects are looking great--I could never keep up with that many at once!
