This picture is of the pond across the road from our house. You can see how muddy it is and the river has backed it up. The river continues to rise tonight, but our house is on a hill and it has never gotten in it. This morning our church at Pikeville got flooded. The basement filled up and also our Pastor's house basement flooded also. The waters came in so fast, within hour and half, that even got in the garage, flooded both cars and truck.

I quilted the small wallhanging I have been working on. I am well pleased with it. I quilted it on my small Janome Jem Platinum and I love the way that little machine stipples. It is so quiet.

You do such lovely work.

Like you, we live on a hill so we don't have to worry about flooding but we usually get the high winds and big snows!

Love the stippling on your wallhanging!

Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Despite the high waters, that picture is beautiful. Your wallhanging turned out beautiful. Good job!
Happy Mother's day!

I hope the flood waters recede soon and that friends, family and your town are safe.

The wall hanging is gorgeous and the quilting is great!
