Thunder and Lightning... very, very frightening!

 Craaazzzy day!

I woke up this morning to MORE rain....
all of which I usually love.

I was sippin' my coffee and checking my computer
when I heard the loudest Crraaaccckkk I've ever heard....
I nearly jumped out of my PJ bottoms!

Lightning struck an old favorite giant sycamore tree just outside of my little studio.
Seriously, that lightning was roughly 14 feet away!

The tree seems like it will be okay (thank goodness) 
it knocked out a few circuit breakers...
killed our cable, phone, and internet
(time warner has been here all day, 
and obviously we are just about back up and running)

The TV's were playing in strange colors for a bit, 
but have seemed to have healed themselves.

The only fatality was my lovely MP3 player
 a constant companion & friend for years.
May she rest in peace... I loved her well.

Could have been worse though. Jeesh!

Stay dry & safe!

Beautiful Gift!

 Remember "Pay It Forward"?

I have send patterns to those on my list,  & was astounded when I received my gift... 

I just had to share a picture (not the greatest - sorry - my camera is acting up)
of my beautiful "PIF" gift from Betty of "Primitivebettys". 
I was so delighted! 

This wonderfully generous and talented lady sent me these....

Her new pattern, "Spring Tuck Pillow", which is just wonderful 
& a tiny pin keep that she stitched for me by hand that says "Easter"
and has the most adorable bunnies on it! 
I will treasure this always...

Am I a lucky girl, or what!

Have a great week-end!
