I seem to be running late on all things - stitching and blogging; but I guess we all have those days (or weeks)!
This week weather wise, we have broken our 100 degree streak and monsoon season has started! These are the rainiest months here in Arizona and they can also be very dangerous. The sky will just open up and rain will pour fiercely and then all of a sudden it just stops. Doesn't trickle or drizzle to a start or stop, it is almost like someone turns on or off a faucet. Yesterday tragedy struck a family that was having a birthday party at a swimming hole and nine members of the family were swept away to their death. I guess where they were they could not hear the warnings. Here in my city roads are constantly being closed due to flooding and the water gets as high as six feet! Luckily for us our neighborhood has not flooded like that since we have been here!
On the stitchy front I have a FINISH, finally!

This was a nice one. Jacob picked out this one to work on from the massive pile because it was Independence Day and it has all those flags in it. I always wanted to stitch a Charles Wysocki piece so I guess this is the next best thing!
Thank you to all what took time to suggest different editors. I have been "experimenting" with them and so far I think I am finding Pixlr the easiest to work with. If anyone else is looking for a quick and simple editor I suggest that you check it out! Don't even have to download anything which is nice; it is all done right online. Thanks Lili for this suggestion!!
Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
