Wave Dancer

Well this weekend didn't give me as much stitching time as I would have liked. But here is my progress on Wave Dancer. I'm working on Band 10 with the dolphin so it's taking longer.

I'm linking up to Super Mom Stitchery Link Party. Stop on over to see what lovely handmade pieces have been worked on this week.

Hubby's weekend was very eventful. We started getting rain Friday. It was just a miserable rain that wasn't going to let up. But he was able to get setup and was dry since we put up a canopy over our tent. We went to bed here at home and Izzy (our dog) woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me it was storming. I looked out the window and could hear the wind and pouring down rain. Mom woke me up Saturday morning and it sounded like we were getting a hurricane outside. The wind was blowing so hard when we opened the front door it took a lot of strength to get it shut. I heard reports of 55 to 62 mph wind gusts with 35 mph steady wind. Plus we had a river running through our yard which we have never seen so high. I think they said we got 4 inches of rain in a just a few hours. So Fred finally called and my worries were confirmed our tent had been destroyed. Luckily he was okay and other than our tent everything else was okay. So it could have been worse definitely. He was wet and cold so he packed up and came home. Not exactly how the weekend was supposed to go for him.

We are having friends over this weekend for a July 4th Camping event. Hopefully our yard will dry up a little bit or we might have to camp in boats. Plus I guess we will have to figure what we will be sleeping in. So wish me luck. I have a lot to do and a little time to do it in. Hope everyone has a great week!

    1. I wish I could Linda. We broke our June record. We ended up with over 14 inches this month. Crazy. Our yard squishes when you walk.
