Good Saturday Morning To You All!
Last night our Kansas sky produced a monster storm west of us in the middle of the state which spawned many tornados and extensive damage to the rural towns and farms across that area. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers for healing and recovery from the devistating storms and damage. Eight years ago this past week I lived in a tiny house in Wichita on a day when there were tornados in Oklahoma and Kansas. One tornado that went through Wichita that day flattened houses one block away from me and had me hiding in a closet scared to death. Just listening to the non-stop storm coverage on the television last night brought a lot of that panic back to me. I'm thinking of those families.
Did you notice our other little family in the picture above??
These precious little babies were snoozing away as I held the camera up to the basket taking pictures. Thank goodness their mama trusts us!! Throughout the day we'll hear these babies in a rousing chorus of chirping. When I look out the window there is the mama feeding them and their little heads are bobbing up and down with mouths wide open.
I think last Saturday I said they were Purple Martins. They're really Purple Finches! Sorry about that. Isn't it amazing how much they've grown in just one week? Awww. :)
One clarification on the CONTEST: One comment per person per POST is eligible for the random drawing. I did say per DAY, and I do mean that, but it's actually per POST because I'm posting every day until the contest ends on Friday. Does that help?
Hopefully I'll have time to pick up some lining fabric and zipper for the Larger Than Life Tote while I'm in Wichita later today. Yay! I can't wait to get this put together. I wound the body yarn into a ball last night and will hopefully get the sides sewn and body made today. I thought maybe I would wash and block the sides before attaching the body but I need to read through the instructions again before I make a final decision about that. The yarn color for the body is a dark brownish red. If I had to give it a name I would say it looks like a Brown Sheep Co. color called Oxblood.
Have a great weekend!
