Several counties along Red River in Northeast Texas, including our county, are under a tornado watch. We’ve had some thunderstorms, off and on, since this morning and there is a whopper of a storm west of us that is moving SW to NE into Oklahoma and it might drag over us if it doesn’t break up.
I’m praying that the worst of it will miss us. We need the rain to put a stop to all the grass fires in our area and west of us. I’m looking at an updated radar map on the local news and the worst of it might go north of us. In any case, I’m not going to stay online much longer and I’ve got knitting to keep me busy and dinner to think about. We might eat a little early in case we have a power outage. I need to check in with a couple of online friends who are in the path of this monster of a storm.
Stay safe and have a blessed Monday evening, ya’ll.
I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
