Well, what an experience it was. Yuma very rarely gets any rain and this past week, we got RAIN. You should have seen the rain. It was a torrential downpour. Our average rainfall for the year is 4 inches and we received 2 inches in a short time. The streets were flooded and the roads were full of puddles. Several friends of ours had leaky roofs. We escaped any damage but we have a metal roof and the noise was wild. It was kinda fun. They are predicting rain for the entire weekend - we shall see. One good thing about the rain, the desert will be in full bloom in the spring.I have had a good stitching week. I have made great progress on Crystal Tree. All the confetti stitching on the tree is done and 1/3 of the presents at the bottom are stitched. All of the presents have some Kreinik threads so they are a little time consuming. Thank goodness for my Thread Heaven cause it keeps those threads under control better.
I worked on Paradigm all day yesterday and really enjoyed this section. There were several small motifs and so you felt like you accomplished something at the end. Hey, I get my enjoyment where I can.
Yesterday, I spent jumping from my deck to the ground. My DH and his friends are replacing our carpeted deck with ceramic tile. When they took the carpet up, the stairs were rotten, so an entire day was spent replacing the stairs. If you are as nimble as I you can imagine jumping off that deck every time I wanted to leave the place. Of course, when there are no stairs you find 100 reasons to go in and out. I will post a photo when they finish my nice new deck.
