We had rains coming right towards us. Then all we got was a little shower. We could really use about a 1/2 inch of rain on the garden. I say this, then feel guilty for wishing for rain. Our county is preparing for the worse floods we have ever seen. Yesterday the Corps started releasing 150,000 cubic feet of water per second from the Gavin's Point Dam, S.D. They said it will take 3 - 3.5 days to reach our area, but we are already seeing flooding. I-29 is closed north of us due to water on the road. They are releasing this amount of water until sometime in August. Goodness, that is a long time to have water standing. We are fortunate to be on high ground, but most of our county are not. So once again, I ask that you pray that our levees will hold.
On a little lighter note, I finished the machine applique on Callie's Portrait. I have had fun with this, so not sure why it has taken me so long to get it done. I fused it down over a year ago now. LOL Anyway, here are a few pictures of it. I still need to embroider some whiskers on it, then I can sandwich and quilt.
