A Finish!

I finished the card for my parents! Look at the little bride's necklace! I made it out of a string of seed beads! The pattern originally called for French knots, but I totally suck at those, so I thought why not just use a string of beads. I think it came out cute!

Yay! We made it through Typhoon Muifa without a scratch! It lasted 52 hours long! During which we were house bound! But! We were some of the lucky ones...some people we know were without electricity (and still are) for HOURS! And we only lost power for about ten minutes this morning at around 7:30. Some people have flooding, we had none. We were very lucky! Thank you again to everyone who sent us good thoughts and prayers!

Thank God you are all alright and without much damage! I just heard that it's heading toward China now. Whew!!!

About "Coming Home for the Holidays", have you started on it yet? I am more than 50% complete on it, but I would enjoy doing a SAL on it with ya! Maybe we can encourage one another to "git 'er done" (to quote Larry the Cable Guy, lol)!

I wondered how you fared with the typhoon. My DS is in Afghanistan and the DIL is in the States so they missed it. I'm glad you made it through with nary a scratch.
Love our card, it's adorable! Thanks for visiting my blog.
