Pre- Sandy Wipocalypse for October

I realize that Wipocalypse posts aren't due until Monday, but if you've been watching the weather forecast lately there is a hurricane heading our way and by then we may not have power.  Since the last Wipocalypse I worked on Halloween ornaments that I shared in my last post so I don't  have to show them again, what I can show you is part 7 of the 24 part SAL "Around the World in 80 Stitches" by Papillon Creations.  This month we worked on stitches representing Turkey (three sided triangle Turkish stitch), Malta (Maltese Cross) and Cyprus (techniques used in Lefkhara Lace). After the little battle I had with the frogs early on everything went rather smoothly.

Over-all
Close-up
Tomorrow I will be finishing up my hurricane preparation, stowing away lawn chairs and planters from the baloney wouldn't want the expected winds to send them through a window.  And one last and very important  task will be buying extra food for Bud.  He's been a little anxious lately.






If only he could cross stitch he would be more relaxed. I think I will find something to stitch right now.  Welcome to all my new followers and thank you all for stopping by.

Lovely pictures of Bud. I hope he will calm down soon. Your Trip around the World is beautiful! So many intricating stitches! Take care; hurricanes look frightening to me.

Great progress on Papillon. Hope everything goes well during the hurricane & it doesn't cause to much troubles. Maybe your dog is anxious because he can sense the weather is changing. I read that animals can "feel" the weather change. I'm sure plenty of yummy Halloween treats & hugs will make him feel better. Mii, x

Yes, I wondered the same thing about poor Bud. Our dog Mac was a complete wreck with any rain at all.
Your stitching looks so beautiful.
Please take care.

Sylvia Joy gets a bit antsy when the weather is due to change. About drives me silly sometimes. Give Bud some extra cuddles for me. Your stitching is lovely! I like the colors a lot. Praying you guys do okay with that hurricane! Huggles.

Hope all goes well with you and your area during the hurricane. Make sure you have those extra batteries or whatever for enough light to stitch in case you lose power.
