Alicia's sweater

Well where has the time gone. We have enjoyed a wonderful summer this year, the monsoons are here right now and its hot, hot and very humid but they will be gone in a couple week's and the rest of the summer should be wonderful here. One thing, my flowers sure love the humid hot weather, they are growing leaps and leaps!

Just finished a wonderful visit with my daughter and her sweet Alicia. I thought you all would enjoy seeing the sweater I made for her. She adored it and just loves everything Grandma makes for her, she is just too precious for words, age 5 this year!

I continue to do good with my recovery and still have not returned to Curves, I hope to do it this week, you know how hard it is to go back once you have left for sometime. But, must be done.

Hope you all are having a good summer too.

Kim's Comfort Quilt and THANK YOU to my Friends

And I was sooooooooo surprised at this beautiful quilt my quilter friend Kim gave me as a present in the Nursing home for my recovery. I put it on my bed right then and just loved it, filled with love and prayers for a good recovery. Isn't she too sweet, thanks so much Kim Haugen, Prescott, Arizona. Now I use it all the time at home on chilly nights in my recliner.

And a BIG THANK you to all my other friends who sent cards and gave me gifts, calls, flowers etc and to all my wonderful neighbors who have brought me food and to Tom who brought me home from the Nursing HOme and is always there to help me out whenever I need him or Karen. Without all of you I couldn't have gotten thru this surgery as well as I did.

Thank you, thank you, thank you sincerely.

Cool Summer nights

Here is a bead embroidery piece I just finished. I call it "Cool Summer Nights', hope you love all the color's, bright and cheerful to me. I had the smaller cab for years and never knew what to do with it. Now all of the sudden it just 'speaks' to me. A fun piece. Hope you enjoy it too.

Miss Mermaid

And here is her back.

Spring in Prescott - Miss Mermaid

Well I think Spring is finally here this week. Its been a cold, cold winter/spring here, very unusual for this part of the good old U.S.A.

Update on surgery, it went very very well and I'm very lucky, "Clarissa" will now be good for another 20 years, I sure hope they are right. It was a hard time coming alone and going thru all this alone without my sweetie, how I still miss him every, every day. sighhhhhhhh. I had Home Health Care in to help me, nurses, physical therapist, and CNA's, they all were truly wonderful, unlike the Nursing home I had to go to for rehab upon immediate release from the hospital. I'm sooooooooo glad that part of my life is over with, thank the Lord.

I continue to recover nicely at home and doing my physical therapy everyday at home, 4 times a day, I"m coming along just fine, very anxious to get out of here, but it will come in time.
And I continue on knitting and beading away waiting to heal and waiting for warmer weather to come to Prescott. Here is a Mermaid that I started down in Carefree in the winter, finally got her finished late winter here and early spring, she was a joy to work on and I'm glad she is done. I haven't found the 'right' place for her yet in our home, still looking. I hope you like her too.

Winter in Prescott 20l0

Well I'm HOME safe and sound and had a great time in Carefree, it was truly the most beautiful place to have a long vacation.

Prescott is still covered in snow and I'm getting settled back into the routine of 'real life' in Prescott and getting ready for my upcoming surgery stay.

Here's another Bead Embroidery piece I did in Carefree. The center is a beautiful button I bought at the Yarn shop in Flagstaff, I just loved it and knew I would use it in a Bead Embroidery piece. The colors and pink's and blacks. Hope you like it too.

Happy New Years

Well where has all the time gone! The Holidays have come and gone and all the kids were home for Holidays and now gone home to their own lifes.

I started the New Year by being a Snow BIRD in Phoenix, so here we are for two months enjoying the warmer weather. Our beautiful Prescott, is covered with snow and I"m glad to be here.

I"m working out 3 times a week at a local pool in Scottsdale in preparation for hip replacement in late March, yup, "Clarissa" needs a new part, how could she fail me! ugh

Here is a new Bead Embroidery piece for the new year. It was an old Sailboat pin I have always loved and didn't wear too many times, why, I don't know, I do love it, so I made it into a Beaded Embroidery necklace. It took over a month to complete and I adore the Bead Embroidery part the best! Hope you like it too.
