Overdue Update

Not sure where the last two weeks have gone other than I spent too much of it at work. It was our busiest time with "the" conference scheduled for early June but thankfully that is all behind me now and it's time to think VA-CA-TION! Hubby and I already have plans to get away for a few days to South Lake Tahoe, CA and we're really looking forward to it and celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary.

On the stitching front I have a few projects in rotation and finally started Sailing, Sailing by Little House Needleworks for our SAL. I did the finishing and mailed the package to my partner in the Prairie Schooler group exchange and will post a picture when Sara M. has it. In the meantime I can share a picture of the goodies I received from Sara. I love the little box, floss tag and measuring tape she made for me and I'm just overwhelmed by her talent and generosity. Thanks again Sara!

I've continued playing with my paints and made a little box in honor of my grandson Izaiah which I plan to mail to my son and daughter in law this week. I was looking forward to their visit later this month but unfortunately it has been postponed for a little bit. My daughter in law is interviewing this week for a job as an RN in ICU so keep a good thought that it will work out.
The painful part of the last week was the loss of my uncle Luis Huertas, Sr. "Big Louie" as we affectionally referred to him was married to my mother's baby sister for close to forty years and his passing was unexpected and a shock to our family. My heart, prayers and thoughts go out to my aunt Blanca, my cousin Ray and his precious granddaughter Kaylin.
R.I.P. Uncle Louie
