"Are they going to like us?" Her son asked as he stared out the car window.

"Of course they're going to like you." She replied, a smile playing on her lips as her husband gave her a look from behind the steering wheel.

"But they moved to Arizona. Away from us." Her daughter pouted as she looked out the other window.

"That's because your uncle's work sent him here...not because they didn't love us." She told her twins. "If they didn't love us, we wouldn't be taking our vacation to see them. They invited us."

She smiled again as the twins yawned in unison at opposite sides of the car. It was late but the sunset was spectacular.

And it's captured in this Southwest desert at sunset counted cross stitch pattern.

The designer is a delight to work with! Her patterns are beautiful and I can't wait to get started. Compatible with Pattern Keeper.

very hard to read the pattern. You need to make a color chart not just the black and white The designer sent me much better charts in color that are very much easier for me to use. She was very helpful and a joy to work with

I love this design for a pillow. I also wanted rustic but soft. The seller has been the best to communicate with. I asked her so many questions, but yet she was always happy, gracious and helpful! Started this. Not an easy pattern, but the detail will be so worth it.
