What happened in September

I am so glad that September is almost over. I had my birthday early in the month and then Hurricane Ike came and visited us. We live 40 miles from Galveston, Texas. We live in the evacuation zone of Hurricane Ike. We did not evacuate because my husband said it was only a catagory 2. We would be fine.The wind started picking up around 3 pm on September 12, Friday. The wind was very bad, the storm surge was horrible, and the rainfall was very limited. My 5 years old son was so mad at the noises outside the house, "be quiet, I am trying to sleep here." It was a scary experience. We suffered minimum damages as far as roof, trees, and fence. We lost electricity for 7 days and I lost all my food in the 2 refrigerators but we were lucky to have water and hot water. The regular phone service did not work for 5 days and the cell phone was useless. I was told during a diaster period, text message is the best way to keep contact. Thank you for the ones that have emailed me and kept me and my family in your prayers.

Here is a link to show some of the damages around the areas:

I am behind at least 2 weeks. My list of things to do are just getting longer and longer.

I have not stitched much but I did work on new designs. A 15 sides biscornu(font and bottom and I don't have the side pictures taken yet) and a needleminder (there is a magnet in the middle to hold needles). I am still working on the needleroll design and they will be available in October.

here are some pictures:

here is my attempt to do a beaded edge, I definitely am not good at it, I don't know what went wrong:

Have a wonderful week and thank you for visiting my blog.
