Weekly Update

I spent the last 8 days visiting my family in Cleveland, Ohio. I had a good time with my mom and my sister who travelled up from Florida and we did plenty of talking, eating, and shopping together. We spent Father's Day with my two brothers at a great BBQ at the home of my brother Jorge and had a nice get together at my brother Santos' home on Friday.

I did take a day to make the drive to Columbus to shop at Cross My Heart and met at the shop with Renee and Kim. If you've never been to CMH I highly recommend the shop. They have a great selection of charts and the gals are just so friendly. After a bit of stitching and shopping Renee and I met up with Nancy and Lauren and we had a fabulous lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. I also got a chance to have dinner with my two best friends from high school Maria and Esther. The time went by way too quickly and the only downside was the heat and humidity. Of course I returned to find temps in California in the high 90s. I'm sure I'm not responsible for carrying it here considering what airlines charge for overweight luggage...LOL!!

I added these to my stash:
Land of Liberty by Erica Michaels
Old Glory Pearls by SamSarah
The Branch Snappers by Bent Creek
Americana Panorama by Blue Ribbon Designs
Uber Flag by Bent Creek

Sounds like a great vacation. We've been complaining that it's too hot, then when it cools down we complain, just can't win :)
