Flood Update

As you can imagine, I've been completely swamped (*rolls eyes*) by dealing with the flood in our basement the past week.  Plus, the flood happened just as I was in the trickiest part of setting up a new website for my quilt guild Rouge Valley.  I've been stretched to the limit for several days now.  The flood remediation process has been quite difficult, and punctuated by a trip to the emergency room for my dad's heart.  So it's been pretty stressful all around.

The only vaguely stitchy thing I've been doing is knitting.  The front and back are done on the Paisley Sweater, and I'm halfway up the first sleeve.  I can't say when I'll be able to organize a photo, though.

Two weeks ago I was thinking that my "sewing machine holiday" has not been the greatest success.  I have not enjoyed it.  I really enjoy handwork as a break from working on the machine, but just handwork all the time became tedious pretty quickly.  So that's good to know.

Of course, I haven't had time to be bored since the flood.  Nature always fills a void!  From now on I'll be more careful about leaving one.  ;)


  1. hope things calm down for you soon. hope your dad is okay now too.

  2. Thanks Katherine. My dad has a follow up appointment tomorrow, so we'll know more then.

  3. I hope you can get dried out soon. I would love to see rain here, but we probably won't get any until October at the earliest. Soon the weather will be cooler and you can get back to the machine.

    How's your dad? I hope he's OK.


I'm told Blogger has been bouncing some comments, so if it happens to you I'm sorry! But the settings look right so I can't explain it. In any case, thanks for reading!
