Yesterday we were under a tornado watch. Thunderstorms were headed our way from the west; it was the same weather system that caused deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma the day before. Our tornado sirens went off a couple of times. I took this picture of the sky outside my back door. See the little bit of rainbow? And the clouds? We had a bit of everything in a 30-minute time period. It got really dark, there was some lightning and thunder, then high winds swept through, followed by a short hail storm. Finally, the sun came out. That's when I took this photo. The clouds were receding and the sun was coming out. There was a weird kind of light on everything.
This is the kind of weather when I decide to stay indoors. I was in my basement, where my sewing room is. I worked on some of my cutter quilt squares while I was there. This one will become a pillow, once I decide on a fabric to make a ruffle for it:
Here is another one in progress:
The little electric fireplace was warming the room. I had flashlights, candles, and battery-powered lanterns with me in case the power went out. I had my three cats lounging about to keep me company. I could hear the wind howling outside, but it was quiet and cozy inside. It was a day to stay inside and work on quilts.
