Work in Progress Wednesday - Tablecloth Progress

I’ve made a bit of progress on the tablecloth this week.  Linking up with WIPW at Pintangle.

Fabric Bomb Giveaway
I will be drawing a name from the comments to this post tomorrow afternoon, announcing the winner on Friday.  You still have time to enter!

Earthquake and Typhoon
Last night, Ted’s phone started talking (in Japanese, of course), saying Jishin desu, jishin desu, over and over. It was warning us of an earthquake.  There was an earthquake in Hokkaido, but we weren’t affected.

Super Typhoon Neoguri has hit Okinawa and is working its way north. It is described as a once in decades storm, with wind up to 250 km per hour. Two to four typhoons a year hit land in Japan, but it is unusual for it to happen in July. Neoguri is expected to hit Kyushu Thursday morning, before traveling across Honshu.  Hokkaido is expected to get hit by a much reduced storm on Saturday. We will be paying close attention to the weather this week.

  5. Is this your first experience with a typhoon?

  6. I heard the news of the typhoon on the radio this morning and thought of you. I couldn't remember which island you lived on, but I was pretty sure it wasn't Okinawa. I hope it dies down considerably before it hits you, stay safe.

  7. It is looking lovely–very delicate work!

  8. Beautiful work and any work is better than no work however small it may be
