Ann Dale has been a constant travel companion in 2013.  My goal had been to finish it this year, and although I am very close, it will not be a 2013 finish.  This has been a very eventful year – two close family members passed away and I reached a milestone in my professional career – so I am not beating myself too much over missing most of my stitching goals.  What matters is that I was able to stitch through it all.

We ended the year with a trip to Death Valley.  This photo was taken on Sandy Peak, which affords a spectacular view of the Eureka Valley sand dunes (it’s the white sandy stretch in the photo just below the mountains).  It was just after sunset when I shot this picture.
