Hard to believe it's been almost two weeks since I last posted but so much has happened in between. My daughter was in town last weekend and when she returned to Arizona on the 15th I went with her. I was in Phoenix for a week taking care of a personal matter and came home yesterday. While in AZ, I finished my model for Little House Needleworks and it's already in the mail to Diane. I kitted "He is Risen" from this month's Just Cross Stitch issue and hope to work on it this week.

Weekly Update

Happy Valentine's Day! My husband and I celebrated a day early by taking a drive to San Francisco and spending our afternoon strolling and taking pictures in Golden Gate Park. The weather was totally cooperating with a clear, sunny day with temps in the high 60s. For dinner we stopped at our favorite pizzeria. We've been going to this place since our first date back in 1990 and it's one of our favorite restaurants in the city.

We had a quiet day at home on Sunday which was perfect after the emotional and busy week we've had. I have an uncle who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma (asbestos cancer) and the prognosis is not good. In addition a very special lady to our family has kidney cancer which is metastasizing so she's in for some aggressive medical treatments. Please say a prayer for Miguel and Rita.

I continue working on my model stitching so I have nothing else to share at the moment.

I've posted some of the pictures we took yesterday to our photo blog...enjoy.

Weekly Update

Not much to share this week stitching wise since I am currently working on a model which I must kept secret till it's release.

In the meantime here are a few nice pictures my husband took while on his bike ride today. Have a terrific week.
