Good morning. It's quite lovely here, but down South, Hurricane Irma (Cat 4) has made landfall in the Florida Keys. The winds are horrific, and are being felt throughout the southern part of the state. I'm watching storm videos on TV. It is showing how bad the winds (gusting over 100 miles an hour) are in Miami along with some flooding, and Miami is one hundred miles away from the center of the storm.
The eye of the storm is heading to make landfall in or near Naples, in the southwest part of Florida. I have a stepson and two grandchildren living in Naples, and my son Gary Jr. also lives on the West side of Florida too, only he's further North. I also have other grandchildren and some very dear friends living in Florida. I pray that they will all come through this wicked storm safely.
There's not much happening here. I've been crocheting, trying to finish up these hat and scarf sets. The blue (Lapis Lazuli) set is finished, and is really quite pretty.
I started working on the pink set (Tourmaline) and after just a few rows, I ran into some really bad yarn. It just wasn't workable and there was quite a lot of it so I called the company where I bought the yarn. They were really nice and are sending me two new skeins of the yarn.
I've been looking over the yarn color pages in the Herschners catalogue, and I'm trying to decide which colors to order for another afghan. Some of the colors are so yummy looking, they could be served up on a platter. hahaha.
Daughter Deanne and Janice stopped by a couple days ago, and brought me a new little solar thingy for my porch. This one is a scarecrow and pumpkins for Autumn, and is ever so cute.
Today I have a new quick page for you. This one is just a bit of "watermelon whimsy." Have fun with it.
Here is your download link:
Now I think I'll make a fresh cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
