 I did more back stitching on In the Garden.  Not too much more to go.  This will probably be my only finish for 2013.
 I spent 10 days in Arizona with my Sister.  We went to the Painted Deseret/Petrified Forest National Park
 And then spent 5 days hiking/camping in the Grand Canyon.
 The canyon at sunrise.  We were on the trail by 4:30 am in the dark and got to watch the sun come up and the different colors appear.
 More sunrise in the canyon.

 This is in a branch of the Grand Canyon that was on Indian Reservation Land - not part of the National Park.  We went with an outfitter and guide who packed in the tents/food and spent 3 days hiking and camping.
 This part of the canyon had waterfalls and looked almost tropical.  We were able to go swimming at this one.

 Sedona.  Our last stop before flying back home.
Castle Rock in Sedona.  It was a great trip.  We hiked 50 miles all told.  It was 104 down in the canyon.  Met alot of nice people from all over the world.  It was hard to come back to work.

July Wipocalypse

 I worked on Cat Cushion this month and made good progress.
I also worked on Little Fairies at Play and I am looking forward to finishing page 3.

I was at the Grand Canyon for 2 weeks and did not get any more stitching done.  I am going to pick up my In the Garden piece and continue the backstitching until Sunday when I will switch to Little Fairies at Play.

I worked on my Cat Cushion this past week and I am happy with the progress I have made. 

Final preparations are underway for Grand Canyon 2013.  Only 5 days until I leave.  Of course work has picked up and I will be working extra hours to get everything ready to leave.  

I probably won't post again until I return in about 2 weeks.
