Where did August go?

August is almost over and before it is, I thought I should get one more blog in! This has been a very busy month. I was lucky enough to hear from my sailor twice (I'm so spoiled now!) and a trip to the beach (which was absoslutely wonderful) and then work has just been plain ole busy. And currently, we, here in Louisiana, are currently trying to prepare for a storm. Phones are ringing in the office and it is starting to get hectic. Although the storm is a good 5 days away, no one is taking it lightly after Katrina. I went to get batteries tonight and they were sold out. Thankfully, my mom will be out and about tomorrow and will have her eye out for batteries.


Now on to other things! I was given another award by Noreen! Yeah! She is so sweet! Here it is:


And for a stitching update. While August has been very busy, I did get some stitching in. Here are two pictures updating on Storykeep Iris and Dragon Knot both from HAED.



I love seeing the progress on these two! I'm hoping to finish Iris very soon. And well, if I get a few days off work from the Hurricane (which I really do hope does not come this way) and I still have power, I will get some more work done both!

Your stitching is really coming along nicely! The colors are so pretty on Iris and the Dragon looks like he's coming alive! Hope the hurricane doesn't cause any problems.

Your stitching looks great. I like both pieces, but I LOVE the Dragon Knot.

Both pieces are coming along nicely.

Very nice! I'll keep fingers and toes crossed that the hurricane stays away from you all. These things are unpredictable even at the last minute so just get ready and be happy when it doesn't hit you. That's what I do and it does help to know you've prepared everything but the sitting and waiting will drive you up the wall. Unless, you can distract yourself with lots of stitching.

Love seeing your updates on these pieces! I think the whole US is hoping this is nothing like Katrina. If it is I think New Orleans may be doomed.....
