I Can’t Believe it’s June Already!

and neither can Mooch! can you believe that this year is almost 1/2 over already?

and in a few days I will be headed up to Northern California to celebrate the retirement of my niece, my Navy niece after 20 years…

This was from…was it 4 years ago Miranda? when she came back from a 7 month deployment on the USS Nimitz. I was there to meet her and an experience I will soon not forget!

Her sister was lucky enough to participate on a Tiger Cruise. Where a friend or a family member meets the ship 2-3 days before it docks into it’s final port and continues with them until they get to their destination. It was very popular!

Getting off the ship…where we were waiting for what seemed like hours!

Her mother (my sister) surprised her as she didn’t know that her Mom was going to be there too!

So she hangs up her blues and ventures into civilian life. We will be there to celebrate with her.

So the cats and I will say… see you later! and it should be at least a week before we’re back. I still have more new stuff from market, new threads and books and more that I have gotten after market. So lots to talk about when I get back!

and until next time…keep on stitching

About Vicky

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. I don’t know you or your niece personally, but please tell her I am proud and grateful that she served. My late husband always made it a point to say hello to servicemen and servicewomen in uniform and thank them. If we happened to be in a coffee place, he’d offer to buy them their coffee.

  2. Vicky, wishing you a lovely time with your niece! Great shot of Alley Cat and Sylvester – looks like they were keeping you warm or keeping you home! Take care.
