It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Greetings, all! I spent a lot of time with Elizabeth Easdon this week (and also with Sarah Elizabeth Brooke--pictures of her progress next week). This isn't all of what I accomplished; I worked on the alphabet at the top as well. I'll do a full picture soon when I get more of that done.


Here's a close-up of the peacock on the house (a hovering peacock, since I've not stitched his legs). I've also started the critters on the lawn. These two are over-two; there are quite a few over-one critters to come.


You may have heard about our epic rains and flooding last week. During the first hour of my four-hour commute home from work on Thursday night I amused myself with my camera. The traffic moved at under 10 mph all the way around the Beltway--note that I've allowed myself a little extra room so as not to rear-end anyone while I was shooting.


Heavy traffic in bunnyland.


Happy week ahead!

Love your Elizabeth! That peacock is so pretty! The rain -- ugh. I'm hoping never to experience rain like we've had with Irene and Lee ever ever again.

Cari said...

Your stitching is awesome as ever, however, my personal favorite....those adorable bunny butts !! :D

Love the sampler. The bunnies are adorable as always.
Susan left a comment on my blog. They've decided that after the earthquake, hurricane, and floods, that the locusts are next! LOL!

Liz looks great! Love the bunny pic, too. The traffic and the rain--ugh! We are getting the remnants of Hurricane Katia today--I couldn't sleep because the rain and wind was so heavy and I was worried that the trees would blow over into the house. Yikes.

Michelle said...

Liz is looking fantastic! Can't wait to see how Sarah is coming along!

Katrina said...

Cute, cute, cute bunny pictures ;-)!!!! Love Elizabeth she's so pretty and I can't wait to see Sarah.

Crazy rain picture, sounds like a horrible commute. Glad you made it home safe and sound.

Melissa said...

Ugh - I hate it when the traffic gets like that.

Your Elizabeth is looking lovley though. I bet you are glad to have the house done. (I always am glad when I get the houses stitched!)

I see Pink is still in jail while the others play. Bratty boy!

Hmmmm, your doorways appear a bit nibbled...I bet the cats did that, eh?

Tama said...

I usually just lurk, and love to watch your samplers grow, but this time I have to say - that is the cutest fuzzy bum! He's such a fluffball!
