In the spotlight

You may have heard of our sleepy little town recently. We've been getting media attention due to flooding of the Scioto River. The flooding recently is the worst I can remember. It's hard to get around due to the numerous flooded roads, and school buildings. The kids around here didn't have school all last week, and looks like this weeks could be a repeat. Let's hope the rain stops soon, or we may need to start building an ark.

I started some new dragonflies yesterday. They are unfinished but I thought I would show you how they begin. This batch will be made out of old kitchen chair legs, chair rungs, vintage bobbins, and spindles. Here are a few pics to give you an idea of what I start with. I had planned to make wings today, but today has been too busy for me to do things for myself. So, I'll post more pics as they evolve into dragonflies.
