Yesterday and today were beautiful here in s.e. FL. Early Tuesday morning was nasty. Living in this tiny wooden cottage, with metal awnings on windows, makes it all seem worse.
Photo below from AccuWeather of a tornado in the Miami-Dade area probably Tues. morning, as that's when we had another tornado warning here. We 'never' used to have these, just thunderstorms. There were two, with winds from 86-110 mph.
I grabbed my Bible and headed into the bathroom when the winds and rains got really bad, heart pounding and opened to Psalms. I skipped around in Psalms, then came to chapter 32 and started reading. When I got to verse7 I saw my note in the sidebar, and I had read this verse a month ago to the day with the last tornado warning that freaked me out. Not a coincidence
Thou art my hiding place;
thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.
Right now it is 74 and tonight it is to get down to 63. Nice weather.
Yesterday I went to GoodWill and Salvation Army thrift stores as it was sr. citizen's day. I got 3 pr. of pants and 2 shirts at GW for just under $15. Yay! Then at SA I bought two panels of lovely fabric to use in my crafting, and a small lamp shade for the bedroom, right around $7.
Below is the fabric. It's been washed and hung out to dry, ready for me to do something with.
Today I took three black and creamy white cameos and glued them to background material to bead on. Found three mini frames in my stash, that DH had made for me. I look forward to getting started beading on these.
The pink cameo lady beaded heart is finished and before I put it my Etsy shop, I thought I would show it here to see if anyone is interested and would like to buy it, it will be less expensive without the fees. If I don't hear from anyone by Sunday the 21st, it will then go into my Etsy shop on Monday the 22nd. My email addy is in my profile. If someone buys it through here, I will come back in to edit post and mark it sold. For U.S. mainland residents only.
I enjoyed making this even though it took many sittings and hours.
The size is 4 1/2 inches x 4 1/2 inches x about 1 1/4 inches thick. There are seed and bugle beads, antique rhinestones, potato shaped and round shaped fresh water pearls, some mahogany obsidian stars, a mother-of-pearl button and two silvered charms, oh yes and the pink Lucite lady cameo.
The price includes shipping and handling, priority mail USPS, $115.
OK, my stomach is telling me it is time for supper, so I'll head on into the kitchen.
Have a nice weekend wherever you are. If you are under the weather, be well. Stay warm and be safe those with winter weather.
Let's all be thankful for our many blessings.
