Thunder, Lightning, Rain, & Hail

The weather has been weird the last three days. 

On Thursday we had lots thunder, I never saw any lightning just heard a constant roll of thunder for over an hour and then the skies just opened up with pouring rain and hail from pea size to 1/2 - 3/4 inch balls. We've never had hail quite that large at the house.

Then Friday it was back again with lightning, thunder, heavy rains, and hail.

 Just look at it coming down. 
There was so much rain the water barrel couldn't keep up.
  Here is one of the many 1/2" hail balls and a few smaller ones that managed to end up on the front porch.

  Saturday we only got rain and were able to get most of the bags in the house before it started coming down.
So far today there hasn't been any rain just scattered clouds and a nice breeze. 
Oh wait,I just heard a couple claps of thunder off in the distance so I better keep an eye out in case I have to run out and close trailer windows and gather laundry.

I got to take a trip to Hobby Lobby on Saturday and came home with.......

The 35 newest colors from DMC.

I have been looking at them online and didn't want to pay $30+ even without the tin, so I checked Joann's and Michael's with no luck. DMC themselves said they were at Michael's. 
So I called Hobby Lobby and Eureka! they had them all. 
The lady I spoke with was surprised that they were the only store in town that had them. 
It's a pain in the tush that you have to run all over town just to get the threads you want, you would think that if you have a Needlework section and sell DMC that you would carry all the DMC.
Oh well, there mine now and when they have a sale I'll get get more just to have a backup skein of each.

That's all for today, so until next time......

Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy


  1. Lucky you - no new colors here.
    We've had weird weather here too - FL. No hail though which we're thankful for!

  2. Glad you were able to get the new DMC colors! Your weather sounds a lot like ours, well minus the hail. Have a good week!

  3. I've not seen them at HL either. Enjoy your new goodies!

  4. Just loved seeing the photos of the rain. Where we are in the mid north coast of New South Wales, Australia, there has been very little rain. The farmers to the west are in severe drought. I do love to look out when it is raining and enjoy hail when it does not do any damage.TFS.

  5. Weird weather, for sure, it's been strange here also.
    Very sunny, then rain, then very sunny.
    But I've yet to see a rainbow in all of this!
    Seems like some HL's have the new DMC, some don't.


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave your thoughts behind. They are truly appreciated and help keep me motivated to continue doing the things I love.
