This has been the strangest winter, I think we've had more storms than in the past few years put together. This last one was a doozy, and a cross between a rain storm and a dust storm. The light was so weird that people were just standing in the street staring at the sky and the yellow brown clouds. I tried to take some photos just before the rain came pelting down and it was so dark the flash on my camera was going off. No time to fiddle with settings, I barely made it back inside, and then we had several leaks to deal with in the workroom.
We've had lots of rain too, so the garden should appreciate that; now if the winds would go away I'd be quite happy.

Oh, that dust/rain storm must have been phenomenal. You took such intriguing pictures. I'm still loving the Skinny Cross. Be sure to post when it's quilted.

isn't it amazing when the sky does different things like that! hope your leaks weren't too bad.

We had only dust, & are promised more tomorrow. We held off washing our car, as we had a feeling it might blow up again. Water is too precious. I really hate the fine layer of red dust in the house, even though we had the windows & doors shut.

The dust storm made our news here in the USA. Said the car washes were booming with business afterwards.

Hello Mereth
I can't believe that I have only now discovered your blog. Kathie sent me with a link on her blog. I am in love with all your gorgeous scrap quilts. I especially love the one you posted on Aug 20. I know after reading your entire blog during the last 2 days that you draft patterns and never use printed instructions. Could you please share the measurements of that block? I, too, usually just draw things out with graph paper and pencil but that one looks a bit hard to calculate. I am mathematically challenged. I am so inspired by all the scrappy quilts you have made and shared here. Thanks so much.
