I have hit my Stitch Maynia 'start' limit. I'm beginning to feel a little anxious about having so many WIPs, and can't bring myself to start anything else. But the other kitted projects will remain on deck; I may grab one for a start as I finish projects, so that I don't just abandon them. Pics of my final starts to come.
In other stitching news, Miss Pansy Mouse is missing. :(( The two possible culprits are myself (did I move her somewhere else thinking she would be safer and I've just...forgotten? This is my brain on stress) or my middle cat who likes to hunt and kill and play with my things (i.e., socks, jewelry, DMC skeins - anything I leave where he can get at it, except that he's always surprising me by getting at things I think are out of his reach). I really hope I find her soon.
I'm still not finished with her house. Stitch Maynia got in the way. But I've picked it back up again. I've ordered Summer Mouse in a House, as well as the charted fabric, and I should be getting it all this week. I won't start that one until June, though.
Last week, I worked from home due to flooding in the area. I live in Missouri, USA, and my town is on the Missouri River. Most of my town is uphill, so there was very little water/damage in town. However, flooding closed the highway across the river. It also close the interstate between my location and my work, so I was kind of stuck. The only other option was to spend 3 - 5 hours detouring with everyone else. I'm very grateful that my manager is flexible about letting me work from home in situations such as that.
Here is a photo of our downtown riverfront area, taken from the river bridge. There are 3 parking lots under water in this photo.
This is the second major flood in less than two years. People who had just gotten homes repaired or rebuilt have lost everything again.
