Visiting

Our next day in the Phoenix area was one for seeing friends and family. I dropped Rich off to see a friend that he worked with many years ago. The guys had lots to talk about.
Then I headed back to Mesa to spend some time at The Attic!


What a fabulous store. It was so wonderful to visit it.


Look at all the amazing models.


Heaven! I had lunch with Jean Lea. I have always seen her back east at needlework shows or symposiums. It was so nice to finally see her wonderful store.



I added a little to my stash.
After stitching a little I drove back up to Glendale to pick up Rich. Then it was back to Mesa to have dinner with my cousin and her beautiful family. It has been maybe 29 years since I have seen Dale.



It was great to see her and to catch up. It will not be such a long time before we see each other again.
Thanks for stopping by and traveling with me!

Oh, you lucky girl!! What fun to see all those goodies in person. I can't tell you the last time I was in a real-honest-to-goodness cross stitch shop! How nice that you got to visit with your cousin after all these years, too :)

What a small world...my son has family that live in Mesa. I was surprised that store was so big. Most needlework shoppes I have shopped at were more on the small side. Will have to check it out next year.
blessings, jill
