Tornados, Power Outage and Hooking

Last evening there was a lot of turbulent weather, high winds, heavy rains, thunder, lightening and tornado watch.  With the TV on I was keeping track of the tornado path and on the map you can see where Seaford is on it's pathway.  
I had taken a photo of the Rainbow Cabin progress, was walking to the computer to do a blog post and the power went out.  Then it was a slow, feeling my way in the dark for a flashlight, then candles, and my trusty storm lamp.  Hey that $10 Premier Storm Lamp gave forth enough light that I was able to sit, hook and have a glass of cab for a while.  Had my cell phone, wine, hook, wool and Ben at my feet.  Thankfully we came out unscathed but it was a scary go for a while.  Sadly not everyone along the tornado's path was so lucky.
Here is the progress on Rainbow Cabin, there were 3 different dark textures used in the logs of the cabin.  So far the only wool I've cut was the red for the door and a couple more strips of the plaid Texture I spoke of in the previous post for the logs ~ Which was from Dorr, #2011 Sage Green Gold.  But it looks brown to me.  Wanted more of that to put along the edge of the log cabin to have that white line against the dark background. 
Next I'll hook some on both the stars and the rainbow.  Stay tuned to see how it turns out.  Thankfully this is a smallish mat measuring 16 x 23 so that I can start on the Out of Hand challenge rug when it is announced by Kelley.

Have a great day everyone and hope weather is not turbulent where you live.



  1. I'm glad you're OK, it's raining here and the farm yard is icy. We had thunder and lightning this morning and I unplugged my laptop.
    Your quite hardy to hook without power but you had everything you needed.
    Nice cabin.

  2. I don't think I could live in your part of the country because of storms like that - I would be a nervous wreck! So glad you are okay and were able to carry on...... your rug is looking awesome!

  3. Glad you are ok. And your rug is looking good.

  4. Well at least you had all your storm supplies at hand, especially in that glass :). I can't wait to see what Kelley has in store for us

  5. You are one determined hooker. So happy you were safe and still could hook.
    Hugs :)

  6. Looks as though you were in good company while waiting out the storm. So glad you were safe. And hope you got power back before the chill set in. Nice progress on the cabin.
