Emma is going on a holiday....
I thought I would post a picture before I pack up Emma. We leave tomorrow for the lake. We are going for 2 months. I can't believe I get to put my feet up and stitch every day ... if I like. So I hope to have Emma finished and a new sampler started very soon. We are surrounded by evergreens , plenty of wildlife and its sooo... peaceful. I will try to post pictures of the lake and river ( not sure how good the internet service is).
We have had unusual major flooding at the lake . We are near the dam which is wide open and flowing 6x faster than usual. Are summer homes are on high ground and safe, but the river where we launch are boat is up 9ft. They have taken all boats out of the water including the houseboats. The marina is sandbagged but the water is up to the deck. The next community past us has been evacuated because the road in and out is flooded. George and I have are fingers crossed that everything returns to near normal in a couple weeks.
I will also be fishing for cancer again this year - in honor and memory of my mother This is an all female event and so much fun. 2 females to a boat and a captain (driver). There are 120 teams (boats) - will post pictures.
I hope everyone has a great summer!
