I love Merry's designs and was thrilled when SNS offered this one--and I was very lucky to be able to take the class.

This is what I've been stabbing at this week:

It's Frances Burwell again.

You may have heard. There's a hurricane wreaking havoc in the Carolinas. We're waiting for it to decide to meander this way--or not--it's changed trajectory daily. Anyway, it seems we're doomed to have high winds and heavy rain, starting in our area sometime in the next 24 hours.  Flooding is possible. Loss of electricity is almost a sure bet. So Dearly Beloved and I have been making preparations--as in stocking the pantry with stuff that doesn't need refrigeration or actually cooking.

Quite frankly, there are things that I have never had any interest in eating before and will likely never eat again.

I mean, really . . . canned chicken salad?


  1. Hope you are spared the safe!!! Do you have a battery operated lamp for stitching???

  2. Thank you for the chuckle about canned chicken salad. I do hope you fared okay with minimal damage and havoc. You are in my thoughts.
