A little late, but since I was out-of-town, I thought I'd still share some goodies from last week. I had a lovely time back home in southern California with the family. I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for a brand new week ahead. (embroidery art above by Jazmin Berakha)

I'm California bound- leaving this evening on a plane to Los Angeles. Looking forward to the sunshine and beach and the smiling faces of my family. See you all after the weekend!
