FNSI and Bothy stitch update

Well, that didn't go as planned!  The weather here was crazy last evening with threats of tornados.  The thunder and lightening for about an hour was non-stop with the power going on and off, high winds, hail and very heavy rain. Needless to say I did not get much sewing done.  A big branch broke over our shed, thankfully its our old one that we have to replace anyway.  I did start to work on my Christmas quilt BOM from the FQS.

Also a couple of pics of the dogs keeping cool in the pond, our visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens and me competing with two of my guys.  Reed got his Working Certificate and Reese got her Working Certificate Excellent title earlier in the month.

My belated BothyThreads update (sorry Deb).  The pony is taking shape.
Have a great weekend!


  1. I was worried we would lose power with the thunderstorm we had...better that than a tornado any day! Sure glad you are all okay!

  2. It the thought that counts and things don't always go as planned, even on a FNSI.

  3. Glad to hear you are all safe. See you at the next FNSI!

  4. Gosh you have had a night of it..

  5. Your horse in the stable is coming to life! I added your progress pic to the SAL page,

  6. Hi Pat, thanks for visiting my blog...
