A Tornado and A Smile!

I received this lovely award from Sharon. How thoughtful! Definitely brought a smile to my face. :-) You're supposed to pass this on to ten other people. I don't know that I know that many people in the blogging world, but, here goes:

Cheryl of Clydeside Stitching

Carolyn of Taking One Stitch at a Time

Lauren of No Really! I Did!

Greg of Shy Guy Ramblings

Anita of Anita's Stitching Addiction

Red of Red's Thread

Melanie of Million Stitches

Dawn of Dawn's Tea Time

Cindy of Cindy's Stitching Korner

Lisa of Desert Stitching

Wow! I actually came up with ten! Can't believe it! If I have missed anyone that has ever left comments, please, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your comments are like a little lift you get everytime you pull up your stuff on the web. :-)

As many of you know a tornado hit Pensacola last week. Fortunately our house was not hit and we are all fine. Here is a picture that was taken from the parking lot of my husband's work. Yes, all of them were in the parking lot, like idiots, watching the tornado!!! The tornado is approximately 2 blocks north of where they are and approximately 2 blocks west of my son's school. By coincidence, his school was closed on Thursday and Friday. Thankfully it was not hit. All of our friends are fine as well.
Haven't stitched lately at all. Too much work and family life! Hope to pick up some this weekend. Hopefully!
Don't forget the Stash for Sale! Just scroll down a little bit and it is on the post beneath this one!

Holy Cow! 2 blocks away? It amazes me how people are fascinated with storms.

Thank you for the award. I'm glad to know I make you smile. I feel the same about you. That is an amazing tornado. How scary to be so close. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get some stitchy time this weekend.

Thanks so much for the award :) You listed some blogs I've never seen before, too, so I'm definitely going to go check them out.

As for that picture, all I can say is that if a tornado was that close, I would've been screaming and hightailing it the other way, lol! I'm glad you didn't get hit, though!
