Girls Day Out

What a way to get rid of some stress, spend the day with a good friend chatting, shopping, eating and stitching. Nancy R and I meet for another day out on Wednesday and boy did we have a good time. We meet at Stitchers Paradise and all the stitching chairs were taken so we did a little shopping (we both were good girls and didn't spend, spend, spend) then decided we would go to lunch and then come back for stitching time. After a yummy lunch at a new dinner neither of us had tried we went by her new apartment to feed the cat and so I could see the new place. Back we went to the LNS to get some stitching time in and this time there was room for us. I worked on "Snowman Trio - Willy" and he is coming along nicely. I only have a few more rows of his body left to do then on to the white in his hat, his arms and the border. With any luck he should be finished by Friday. I did get the buttons called for and they are so cute and will really add the finishing touch to the project.

"Snowman Trio - Willy"
While we were looking around Nancy spotted some really beautiful ornaments that look like old fashioned Christmas Lights. They are done in Needlepoint with some really great speciality threads and the best part the charts are free. So now we will be venturing into the world of needlepoint, something I said I would never do again, guess I need to learn to never say never LOL.
Hope everyone is having a good week....mine sure has improved.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

I love shopping and stitching with a fellow stitcher. I shall miss those days now that Lisa has left Sac...Willy is cute as can be. Needlepoint, I have seen many designs that I'd love to try but they all have way to high a price tag on them.

Looks like its a good thing that Nancy moved to Vegas for you! I know Tracy likes to shop with you, but it's nice to have a female opinion once in awhile! The snowman trio is one I need to start. I just think they are so cute. I don't know what is stopping me!!!
