About Me

New York, United States
I’m in my mid-ish 30’s (excuse me while I sob uncontrollably). I love coffee, cross stitching, reading, gardening and travel. I hope to pass along some patterns and pick a few up along the way.

Vacation in Pennsylvania

I'm back! I hope everyone has been well and have a bunch of posts for me to papoose.

Last weekend my mother had a school reunion and we took the opportunity to have a mini family reunion. Here is a picture of my mother, sisters (sans Vikki), my niece and my Mom-Mom. I ask you, is she not the most beautiful grandmother ever! I'm in the top row, second in from the right.

Now Johnstown, PA is known for two things. 1- The flood of 1889 which claimed 2,209 lives and 2-the Inclined Plane, the world's steepest vehicular inclined plane thank you very much. It offers a beautiful view of the valley. Sadly it was rainy so the wonderful pictures were few and far between

Here I have a two examples of Mom-Mom's cross stitch work.
She also made tons of afghans and quilts and Aunt Cathie was kind enough to dig some up for us. Here are the afghan and quilt I was given. The quilt is a beautiful butter yellow, the pic just doesn't do it justice.

And with that I am going to go check in on all of your blogs.
