Arizona ... Day 2

I forgot to include a picture in yesterdays post .. a very important picture of our dear sweet Sharon with needle in hand. See, Sharon is the mom of a delightful 18 month old little boy, Josh. Like so many of us when our kids were young, a needle and thread and floss in hand was a rare occassion. This picture is proof that Sharon does stitch .. in fact she was the first of us to finish the piece Karen designed for us ... Cheers Sharon!

Day 2 was our road trip to Karen's LNS, The Attic. Here we are ready to head out ...

it was a beautiful day ...

Looking back at my pictures, looks like I didn't take any once we actually were at The Attic, but both Karen and Ruth have pictures of our visit. I don't have a LNS close to me and I have to admit I went a bit overboard with my stash purchases ... but I had a blast doing it! I get a giddy when I can actually touch fabrics and flosses, ooh and goo over models hanging all over. I know I bought a couple of charts that I never would have if I hadn't seen it stitched up. Pictures of stash will be coming soon. I'm not entirely unpacked yet .. I started getting a head cold on the way home from AZ, well now it's a full blown cold, another one .. grrrrr!
This is one of my favorite pictures of the 5 of us .. the V is for VACATION! and we spent a lot of time throwing up the V and yelling WOO HOO WE'RE ON VACATION!! lol

I won't give away secrets about how much we all spent at The Attic .. but I know the ladies there were happy to see us :) and I was the winner that day .. followed closely by Chris, Sharon, Ruth and Karen.
More tomorrow .. I'm off to take my drugs and head to bed.


I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for hot tea ...

I was quicking going through posts this a.m. LOL! LOL! LOL! and I had just read Ruth's blog post and her pictures of alcohol, and I get to your post and I'm reading, skimming, reading and I see the "V" and then I read "we spent a lot of time, throwing up the "V" going WHOO HOO we're on vacation!" Now I hadn't realized that the "V" mean the letter "V" sign, I thought you were saying that you "spent a lot of time throwing up VODKA because HEY you were on vacation!" LOL! LOL! LOL! I'm sitting here laughing my A$$ off and my cat is looking at me like I'm NUTS! LOL! Now I have to pee and hold my stomach because it hurts from laughing!!!!
