Purrfect Partners

Yesterday was an interesting day for me. First of all, 7 years ago we survived a terrible tornado when we lived in Mississippi. We were lucky that nobody was injured but we lost everything. Since that happened I tend to be very nervous during storms. Well, as predicted, yesterday we had lots of rain. And I mean lots of rain! In our backyard we have a dried up creek bed that runs the property. In the whole time we have lived here (almost 2 years!) I have never seen water actually run through it. That is until about 10:30 PM last night when I took Gracie outside and I heard the sound of rushing water. I wandered over to the creek bed and to my astonishment it was full of water and it was rushing fast!

Thankfully this morning the rain has let up and the creek is no longer full of water. However, that was just freaky seeing that last night! Since it was so rainy yesterday I was able to get a good start on Purrfect Partners. :)

This one came kitted up in the February issue of The CrossStitcher. I am using the threads but I didn't use the aida that came supplied with it.
Today I get to work on Harvest Witch. :) I will work on her later this afternoon after I have the laundry done. I am planning on ordering the Kreiniks this week so hopefully I can start filling the empty gaps soon.
Enjoy your day!

We're getting the odd rain here today. With all the snow we had melting down and the rain on top of it, it's quite a mess at the moment. Your two earlier finishes, Valentines Box and Jack-O-Lantern fob looked wonderful. The MS cats you're working on now are so cute, great start.

This is such a cute kit! I adore Margaret Sherry and I've watched a few bloggers stitch these guys. Now I just have to wait til the middle of next month when Australia gets that Cross Stitcher issue.

Perfect Partners is such a cute design.

I know about severe weather, living here in OK we get some scary weather sometimes. Lot's of rain here too, but the ditch beside my place hasn't over flowed this time!

I hope the rain stays away and you stay safe.
