Quite the storm!

The other night I could hear some thunder in the distance so I looked out side to see this spectacular view.

About a 1/2 hour later we had a huge storm but we didn't get any damage. I know that A lot of folks have been hit hard with the weather and my prayers go out to all of you who have suffered through the many storms north and south!







On the stitching front I have been plugging away at these *@$^# ing pumpkins ..But it is coming together. It's a little boring for me so they don't get a lot of attention.







I have 2 of the Lizzy Kate Christmas spirit flip it's done and just love doing these. Aren't they just the cutest?





Tomorrow I will be spending the day at a Lilly Farm in Orno Ontario. Like I need more flowers..maybe I won't buy any...lol...
It should be interesting. I hope the weather holds for us.



Take care and stitch with happy fingers.
I hope to have some nice pictures of the Lillie's for you.

I love the Hallowe'en stitching you're doing - this one caught my eye in my stash recently and you're doing a great job of it, despite the monotonous pumpkins :) Love your Christmas double flips, it's going to be gorgeous when it's all finished.

Love your Christmas spirit flip it!!! I think your witch is coming along and don't blame you for being bored with such a large pumpkin patch. :) Hope you had fun at the farm and good to hear you survived a bad storm. We had them here in Holland over the weekend as it has turned tropical here all of a sudden. Not something we are so used to. I am busy putting the finishing stitches in a tutorial for my blog later today but enjoyed taking a few moments off to visit you.

Hugs ~

Congratulations on the awards, and both your wips are looking great. The Witch and pumpkins is a cute one, but I can see how the pumpkins would get a bit tiring to do for to long. Luckily you have the adorable LK Christmas Flips to work on. :)
