I'm back !!

Well, it has been a long time since I have posted to my blog. May was a very busy month and June is looking the same.
I did make it back from North Carolina and then left a week later for Washington DC.

My husband and I spent a few days there with our son, Nick, before he started an internship for the summer at Accion International. We went to the National Mall on Sunday and walked around the different war memorials. It was an awesome experience to see these memorials.

Men and women have given their lives for our freedom and we should give thanks everyday for their bravery.

We had dinner at a restaurant called "Tonic" near George Washington University.

We left for home the next day and got back late Tuesday evening.

It seems like we have been on the go ever since.

I have had some knee issues over the past three years and finally went to the doctor again. I have a torn meniscus in my left knee and had arthroscopic surgery Friday, June 12. I am recovering nicely, though. I will start physical therapy for the next four weeks and then hopefully can start back with my walking and gardening and being outside.

I have finished rughooking the 4 season rugs I have been working on.

I also finished my Uncle Sam wallhanging in time for July 4th. It is from an old Debbie Mumm book, "Americana Country".

And finally, I finished a stitchery I started while I was in North Carolina. It is called "Pantry Cuttings" by Ginger Cookie Company.

So that's all that I have been up. I didn't get to go Eureka Springs for the rughooking get-together, because of my knee surgery.

My friend, Ginger said it was wonderful and there were lots of beautiful rugs. Check out her blog: Also check out: She did a great job telling about the weekend. I am going to the Texas Rugfest in Grapevine, June 22. Can't wait :)

Have a great evening and give your loved ones a hug.



  1. You've accomplished alot being on the go as much as you have been lately. Hope your knee is getting better with each new day. See you Sunday evening!

  2. Good luck with your rehab on your knee. Isn't the Mall inspiring? We live so close to DC but rarely visit. We really need to as we haven't been there in awhile.

    Your needlework is close as I have come to ever doing any needlework was cross stitching.
