I have gotten started on the second to last block. Mr. Scarecrow. He is a delightful fellow and I am progressing well towards his completion. I struggled this past weekend with one particular item on the block. It would have been fussy piecing and I finally realized I was dragging my feet because I did not want it on my block. My dilemma consisted of two tiny houses set in the background for depth perception. I decided that those people don’t live there anymore and the houses would just have to be relocated for rural revitalization. Make room for more pumpkin patches!
I am proud to say I survived the past two days rainfall without incident. I was able to cross my two low water bridges without any problems. Yay!! I made the right decision to purchase a 4 wheel drive. I stood on my deck last night and listened to the roiling waters from those creeks. If I can hear the water from where I live then that means no crossing the low water bridges. Apparently, I got through just in time and I am very thankful for that, for not only to be able to sleep in my own bed, but I needed to make my dishes for our church dinner tonight.
