Life happens. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. For all of my complaining earlier this year about the lack of sunshine and warmth I have been enjoying “Summer”. I’ve been doing some walking, playing golf and stitching outside on the balcony. Last month for my birthday I spent 4 days in Las Vegas. I must have walked a hundred miles. Because I am such a big fan of CSI hubby surprised me with the CSI Experience which is an interactive tour through a crime scene to collect evidence, then analyze what you’ve found in the crime lab and at the end if you can tell what happened and who dun-it you get a diploma. We are now both Crime Scene Investigators, at least according to Supervisor Gil Grissom.
I loved it! We also went to a show that was a tribute to Michael Jackson, it was awesome, and this guy looked and sounded exactly like him. The rest of the time in Vegas was spent contributing to their local economy by way of the slot machines. Needless to say I did not win anything but I had a great time losing.
Here is a picture of the other gifts I got for my birthday, that gorgeous chart was from my very good blogging friend Shirlee. Thank you again, I love it.
While out exploring the new Post Exchange on Fort Belvoir here in Alexandria, VA I came across this beauty and I just had to have it. It is an apothecary cabinet with all of those lovely drawers for floss storage.
On the stitching front I have stitched a design for a needle book exchange and I can’t show you everything but here’s a sneak-peek.
I’ve got the sewing part to do but it not due until Sept so I’ve got time.
Also I’ve been stitching on the Needleworker by Little House Needleworks and it’s coming along pretty quickly.
Hopefully it won’t be such a long time to my next post and I have more stitching pictures to show you. I have got to start a piece for my DS and DIL’s 10th anniversary so until next time thank you all for stopping by and welcome to any new followers. I’m off to make some wonderful little xxs.
