Stormy City and a Cross Stitch Update

Thank you all so much for the very nice comments on my April Word Play.  I have finished May but I don't have a picture.  I plan on taking a photo after it is pressed.  It is still a wrinkled mess. I am not sure if I will stitch the June Word Play.  I have the PS June finished so I might skip the June one at least for the time being. I am back to working on "This is the Day."
The SBA had a big birthday on Sat. so we went over to the city for dinner. We went to West Seattle.  The restaurant had an amazing view of the city. It was a very stormy day up here so it was a day to get some interesting pictures of Seattle.  I hope you enjoy them.

 Huge dark storm clouds over the Space Needle.

 The sun was very low and shown on the lower parts of the buildings .

 This is just before we started home. Things had quieted down.

The border is finished.  I am working on the alphabet. I am using antique ivory linen that dark area is just a shadow.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
