A Little Stitchin'.... and a little Shakin'

Gentle Friends, since I finished up my "Animal Sampler" I dove back into the old WIP basket and I thought I would pull out "Sojourner."  BUt. I am really ion the mood to stitch Fall. the warm Autumnal colours are just calling my name, russet, gold, amber, deep ruby red orange....... then I cam across a piece I've not worked on in ages, probably years.......

...  "Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow"....  why this got pushed to the bottom of the pile I'm really not sure.  Sorry about the wrinkles, but you get the idea. It's a great looking sampler and now I'm totally motivated to stitch on this Fall monster.

When I sat down to work on the posting this morning we had one of our little quakes, and the whole building I'm in just sort of bumped then swayed quite a bit, and it's a pretty big building!!  It was a 4.1 quake out in the East Bay near a town called Piedmont.  This quake was much stronger than the one I felt last week when I was home and the townhouse just sort of bumped and jerked a bit.  Never a dull moment here by the Bay.  BTW there have been two more quakes near Piedmont just since I started writing that I did not feel one bit, a 1.7 and a 1.8.

The earthquake woke me up, but in true Bay Area laissez-faire fashion, I went back to sleep. Looking forward to your progress on Autumn.

Yuck to those earthquakes. Praying they are done today. LOVE your Autumn HRH. I have all of them & can't stay committed to one. How do you stay focused till it's finished? Send me some cyber help. 😉

Mary said...

Edgar, Do the hounds notice the quakes?

Julie said...

Hope that's the last of quakes for sometime.
Great project you 'found' in the basket, such vibrant colours to be stitching ready for the coming season.

I was awake when the quake hit and the funny thing is that my cat knew it was coming a couple of seconds before it hit. He was sitting on the bed next to me and suddenly freaked out. He tore from the bed like he was being chased and hid. As soon as I thought to my self "what the heck is wrong with him?!?", the whole house started shaking. I'm guessing he must have heard something or felt a vibration.

Your AatHRH is looking great. I'm in the mood to stitch fall designs too. Take care Edgar and have a wonderful day. Hopefully no more earthquakes, my grandpa lives right where it hit.

Pamela said...

Beautiful fall piece. I can see why you've chosen it to work on next!

Shelly said...

Ugh, earthquakes! Hope that will be it for a while. Great choice, Edgar. This is on my bucket list.

Vicki said...

Autumn at HRH is gonna be awesome, I'll enjoy watching your progress on this one. I saw the news about the earthquake and thought of you. I know I could never get used to that!

Margaret said...

Your HRH is looking great! Ugh on the earthquakes. It's the one reason why I don't move to SF right away. lol! Love SF and California, but hate the earthquakes.

Barb said...

I think you are going to love that design. I stitched it some time ago as a 9 square. The place I wanted to use it required it be a square. Anyway, it is a great design. After each 3, I took a break so in all it took pretty much of a year. Stay safe, they tell us the big one is coming up here.

Hazel said...

It's looking beautiful Edgar.

ahhh Autumn my favorite time, Great progress on AAHRH. I can't wait for cooler weather here in the South. 4.1 is a pretty good one. When we lived in the Bay I became use to them and most times would either not feel them or sleep right through them but the thought of them was always on my mind.

Have a wonderful Tuesday

Myra said...

I can't imagine what an earthquake is like. The thought seems frightening to me. Stay safe Edgar. The new/old project is a dandy... love the colors. Ahhh fall!

Rita said...

Every time we visit our DD in SF, I wonder if we'll feel an earthquake. I've never experienced one.

Your AHRH is coming along nicely. I have it in my stash and have collected most of the silks for it. I need to get it started soon.

Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher said...

AHRH is awesome Mr. Edgar :)
But am sorry to hear about a earthquake...yikes...I'd be a nervous wreck!

Jackie said...

AaHRH is a gorgeous piece! It's one of those things, you put in away but just a bit and it ends up in DEEP hibernation. Happens to all of us!

I'm curious as to whether or not the hounds can sense a quake coming before you can and can feel the small ones too. I'm convinced that animals sense all those shifts that us humans don't.

Stay safe!
