Girls Day Out

I was so surprised when I got a email from Nancy R from NM Monday that she was here in Las Vegas. We talked on the phone and made plans to meet on Wednesday for a "Girls Day Out".


Rene and Nancy

We started our day with a yummy lunch at The Olive Garden where I gave her this "Cupcake" and a stitch picker that I made just for her. I think we did more talking than eating. It was like we had known each other for years.
After lunch we headed for the LNS "Stitcher's Paradise". While I love going there with Tracy it's a lot more fun to go with another stitcher. I was able to help Nancy pick out her threads and fabric for the Hardanger Class and we both added to our stash. I didn't do too bad and only got 3 new charts and some really pretty threads.
Here is what I got......


LK's "Did You Ever Stop To Think" and the threads for it

Barbara Ana's "Hand Over The Coffee"



DOODLES "Cabin in the Snow"
To show what a small world this is, while standing at the counter a lady who was in the shop with a group stitching came up to me and asked if I blogged. I said yes, with a puzzled look on my face I'm sure. It turns out that she follows my blog and recognized the froggie bag Mary made me that I take on all my shopping trips.
After all the spending at the LNS we needed a break and stopped at the nearest Starbucks for a Frappichino and more chatting. Refreshed we headed for JoAnn's since Nancy needed something to finish a project for her BF's mother's birthday. I did pretty well there and got a really cute Frog basket that was 70% off, some beads and more threads. Then off we went again to Michael's. Believe it or not I didn't buy anything there but Nancy found a few things she just had to have. By this time it was getting late so we said our good by's and talked about meeting again on Friday night when we both have plans to go out with our men. I sure hope we can work that out since I'd really love to see her again before she goes home. She has plans to come back again in July so I'm sure we will have another day out then.
When I got home I just had to start on the new LK project but didn't get much done. I was really tired and went to bed very early and just watched the new TV Tracy got for the bedroom.
That was our day out.....
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

What a small world! That is so awesome and scary at the same time when a stranger says "I follow your blog".

Congrats on a great day with Nancy and have fun on Friday!

Nancy said...

Sounds like the perfect day, hitting all the good spots with another stitcher! Hope you all get together again tomorrow. Funny how you can *meet* other people who read your blog and not know it! Nice patterns you picked up too.

How cool is it to be recognised from your blog, gives you a taste of fame I bet.

What fun - great picture, too! How cool that someone recognized you by your bag and blog! Nice stash, though I must say, you restrained yourself very well!
