Sort of.... After the Fires on Saturday, we thought we were in for a relaxing Sunday, when about 3 pm the tornado weather warnings started going off.... Of course we are rural enough - the news channel says - Tornado damages.... details at 5... ummm really?  We are people too!!

Some of the fire damage . No one was injured - all's good

So I go to Twitter. Matt Makens From the Channel 7 news - he is my total favoristst ( that's a word - I promise) Weather man - he has maps, radars, specific locations.. we decided from his info we better grab the dogs and go to the basement.

I asked if we could bring the pigs... I was vetoed. The tornados went to the north of us... and the temps dropped about 20 degrees.... NOW !! It was time to stitch!!
When they told us to take shelter I wanted to know why.... this was building

Oh ya - and all this time we are waiting in the basement.... I have a peach cobbler baking. Probably the first I have made in a gazillion years - and I am totally yelling at this tornado warning to NOT BURN my COBBLER.... it didn't.... it was good....

Okay - so Stitching... ready???

Blueberry Crumble is now a top!!!

This is so you can see it both ways - I don't know which it the top , bottom or sides, but I don't care - it spoke to me to stop right here - and that is what I did!!

And to impress you all some more!  I picked out the backing, prepped it, and pinned the whole shebang - so when my kids go back to school..... I will cry my eyes out while quilting this puppy!!

Okay - maybe not cry my eyes out, but I will miss them..... and their ability to do chores, and make me lunch, and talk with me, and make me laugh, and .... oh boy.... see why I cry???

That was a lot of excitement between fire and tornado threats. Glad the peach cobbler did not burn...and the glass of wine the night before was very appropriate! Oh, the house is way too quiet when the kids go off to school! Just keep busy and quilt on, smile. Love your Blueberry Crumble quilt!

Glad the cobbler and your family are all safe.

Glad you are safe -- weather can be the PITS sometimes, especially when it interferes with PEACH cobbler! Sorry for the bad pun. Sally

Blueberry crumble AND peach cobbler all in one day! You've been cooking up a storm. haha

The Joyful Quilter said...

Good grief!! A tornado, too?!?!? I know that you "quilt up a storm", but REALLYY!!!! LOL

Terri said...

Glad your storm moved off, and the fire was put out. You've got a lot of excitement going on there.
I got some excitement today, too. The quilt you quilted for me got here today. I love it! I'm so happy with the feathers and all the other designs on it. Thank you so much. I'm just never going to attempt quilting another big quilt.

I laughed at why you will miss having your children in school. My son cooked dinner tonight - oh was it ever good. That extra flavor of I-didn't-cook-it seasoning. LOL I love the Blueberry Crumble. For some reason, I see it as a birdhouse neighborhood and I want to applique little red birds all over it!

Fire yesterday, wind today, I'm hoping you didn't get lots of water the day after!

I know what you mean about the kids being back in school. Though I normally work I'm off today and it was so weird to see DT head out the door on her own. It's really quiet around here today. And there's no one to go get me coffee (which she'll do at a moments notice, cause she gets her own version of caffeine for free because Mom will pay for both.
