We are in the midst of almost hurricane Beryl - AACCKKK - this storm came from no where. I am working today since Memorial Day is not a holiday in our company. I wish I could capture the tremendous howling wind and waves crashing over the sea wall in front of the historic home where I work. It is quite a site to behold. These photos were taken about 2 hours ago and it is much worse now. I have been here since around 9am and the wind has definitely picked up again. You can tell that during the last high tide the water came over the sea wall and flooded into our parking lot.
These shots are taken on the veranda outside my office.
Here you can see some of the debris that floated off the river in the high tide and wind - I intend to leave before the next high tide comes rolling in.
Just so my post is not all gloom and doom - here are some fun photos from our rug guilds annual hook-in last Saturday. We had 25 members and guests attend and that was a pretty good turnout. Unfortunately we did not have that many finished items displayed but here is a few.
Isn't this 3 D pumpkin cool - DK Becky was working on it at the St Simons Island retreat and it was nice to see her finished pumpkin. It has a real pumpkin stem - I would love to do a set of these for a fall centerpiece.
I think this is an osprey which was hooked by a guild member - too bad I cut off her hawk next too it.
I'm not sure whose turkey this is but this is a neat seasonal rug and I love the pumpkins in this one.
Isn't this octagonal rug gorgeous - I'm pretty sure it was hooked in a 3/4 cut
This stunning WIP is a scene from a Vermont village. The maker is a member of our local guild and she is toying with donating this magnificent rug to the local historical society which is actually one of those buildings. I'm sorry it came out upside down and I did not correct it before I posted the photo.
I wish I could add an updated photo of the angry river now 3 hours after those photos I took this morning - it is really churning out there.
BE GONE BERYL - take yourself back out to sea.
