Enjoyed a brief break from the horse and scrolls rug to work on something small. Plans are to use this on the front door for Valentines day. It will be in pocket form with a wool back and filled with something to be revealed later. As you can see I utilize every left over piece of foundation I have ~ a make-do mentality.
Am sure my sweet DIL will want one so before Christmas next year will need to make another. Maybe for hers I'll hook a star???? This is a pattern from a Kindred Spirits booklet as seen below.
The water will just not dry up. In my research learned there was 11.4" of rain during December for this area. Don't know how much rainfall for November but I did post photos of flooding in my yard in November. The photo you're looking at is my neighbor's yard. See that black circle? There is water flowing from a yard sump pump which is overflowing and backing down MY driveway.
Here it is flowing backward down my driveway and up close you can see the ripples of water.
Then there was yet ANOTHER all night rainfall and this is the water in my neighbor's backyard. Which soon will be pumped to the end of the road and back in my yard. Could be the drain hole has filled in so it has no place else to go but my driveway. But since the guy isn't one to encounter I've notified the development management to let them talk to him.
I now have a couple mallards swimming in the back woods, they are pretty but would prefer to not have a pond back there. Oh the joys of home ownership. Thank goodness I've my hooking ~ but I should be spending time to organize my wool room which is in full blown chaos.
