On a Wednesday

We're in the middle of quite an ugly storm right now. I went out on the deck to take a picture right before the sky opened up and it started pouring. You couldn't even see the other side of the lake!

I had to take this picture under the glare of the kitchen pendants which is unfortunate because I wanted to mention how I ripped out the old blue water and restitched it with the called for overdyed thread. You'll just have to take my word for it when I say it looks tons better. I went ahead and ordered a couple of the other threads I was missing so I will put this one on hold until they arrive in the post.

It's time for lunch so I think I'll curl up with my book in front of the fireplace and have a bite to eat while I wait for the laundry to finish up.
This is a great book, by the way. I've had to renew it twice because I read almost as slow as I stitch! It's all about the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago with a real life murder mystery on the side. (Did you know the alabaster city referred to in America the Beautiful is the Chicago World's Fair? I love learning little tidbits like that!)

Dryer just buzzed so off I go to swap loads!

Yikes, Paisley, that storm looks were brave to head out on the deck...but even in a storm your lake is just so beautiful, what a view!
Flock Together is gorgeous, and I love the floss colors, and can't wait to see it all finished.
Looks like a good book that you're reading, so I jotted down the title for future reads...don't ask what I'm reading...I'm on a kick of junky mysteries.
Have a great day

Nice shot of the incoming storm! What a beautiful area you live in! Flock Together is looking good. Enjoy the rest of your day and of course, your book.

I love to watch a storm rolling in over the water. It can be quite breathtaking. I love your "Flock Together" piece. It's absolutely adorable! --Andrea
