Busy Week

This has been a very busy week. Hubby had minor surgery on Monday, came home Tuesday. He's fine, going crazy healing (which is a good sign).  All's well. 

Yesterday we had a great girls' day out. Today was Japanese embroidery. In between all of this, the only photos I have are from our day yesterday.

We had these yummy cupcakes in Wasco, Il (I can't remember the name of the coffee shop--they were really nice and the cupcakes were great!)  Below is Nancy modeling her new lacy beaded sweater. It is really sweet.

We had a great lunch at Rx Cafe in St. Charles, IL--tapas! Then we visited Wool and Company (almost next door to the Cafe, Designer's Desk in nearby Geneva, then we drove over to Lisle to visit Pieceful Heat Fabrics. We browsed and bought (mostly me). I got threads for a needlepoint project, sock yarn for a friend and as a gift, and Clover templates to make folded flowers.
Here's a closeup of the sweater with the beaded yoke.
These sweet treats from Japan were provided by ...
My niece who is finally back from a few years in Japan--a new addition to our Girls' Days!

Nice to see a picture of Hannah, I haven't had a clear idea of how she looks these days. I'm glad you had such a nice day.
