We Interrupt this quilting for . . .

And then the wind blew . . .

I rushed out of the shower after I heard a second banging sound. The first one was a tree falling next door. The second, bigger one was on our property. Yikes. I dressed REALLY fast.

This looked pretty weird -- our bedroom has cathedral ceiling and this was visible from the top window. Not really what I normally look at.

And here's what it looked like from inside of my bedroom.

And what it looked like from the backyard.
And, of course, the wind continued to blow most of the day and the night. Do you know how hard it is to sleep next to all those windows on the right during a high wind? YUCH. We were lucky no windows were hit. Tree man, builder and insurance is all in the works.

I wasn't going to go to Wed. quilting and then decided to anyway. Except for the wind, I was ready to get out and about. I got a good part of The Witch Is In quilted with 2 strands of embroidery floss.

On the way to one of three appointments today: dog, dentist, and eyeballs. Take care all.

Happy Quilting.


  1. Yikes, you definitely were lucky the branch did not come into the house.

    Last weekend's heavy snow broke a lot of branches around my area. It was sad to see the destruction and the demise of so many beautiful trees.

  2. you have a very beautiful home! So glad that there wasn't more damage form the tree falling!

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
