October Frankenstorm Wipocalypse

The wind sounds like it's going to take the roof off! Everything was closed here in Virginia. We're right across the river from Washington DC. That's the same river that will probably flood Old Town Alexandria later tonight. I actually had to go into work this morning. After I had been there for about an hour, the powers that be decided to send everyone home - all four of us who actually made it in. No word on if we need to go in tomorrow. DH is going to be off because the Fed gov't already decided to stay closed tomorrow.

Oh, well, on to the fun stuff. I got some stitching done this month. I have a new start (I know, I have startitis). It is LHN's Around the World in 80 Days.

Next up is The Astronomer. I've added about 2000 stitches since last month. Every stitch is closer to getting another page done.

Well, I have to go check my work email and see what they say bout tomorrow.

Stay safe everyone.

Power still on here and I'm dry. Hope things are ok where you are.

I love that LHN design. No wonder you want to start it.

The HAED is really looking gorgeous now. Takes so long for those to shape up, but when they do..wow!

Beautiful progress. Hope you rode out the storm with minimal damage and headaches. I'm far enough south (just north of King's Dominion) that I missed the worst of it. Decided I wasn't going to go into work on Monday before they called it off as I figured I'd be stuck there once I got in.
