Nancy R and I had plans to meet at the LNS for a day of stitching. The forecast for the day was for rain but as I left the apt the sun was shinning and there was no wind or clouds in the sky...perfect right? The bus arrived on time, the light changed to walk as soon as I got to the corner, all was right with the world until I got almost to the LNS and the Klutz in me sprang to life. As I was stepping up on the sidewalk my legs gave out and down I went, flat on my back, hitting my head on the curb stop. I was so embarrassed when a very nice man came running over to see if I needed a ambulance. Of course I said No Thanks (didn't want to spend my stitching time in the ER). My legs were still real weak and I guess I was kinda dazed so he literly picked me up and I made it to the LNS. There my own private former EMT, Nancy, checked me over after I told her no way I needed the medics. She got me some ice for the Goose Egg on my head and the day went better from there. We stitched, shopped, stitched, went to lunch and then back to the LNS to stitch some more. I had taken a couple of projects with me but decided to work on the "Easter House" since it's on perforated paper and with the slight headache I had it was much easier to do than the linen I had with me. We stitched for about 5 hours total and both got a lot done. I really enjoy these days out we get to have and can't wait until we do it again.
Wanda J from my ILCS group and her DH John were on vacation in St George UT and were thinking of coming to LV to see the lights and sights but were really sure if they would make it before having to head back home to Canada. Well she called me Thurs evening to let me know there would be here late in the morning on Friday. I can't tell you how excited I was that I was finally going to meet her after all these years of talking on the group.
We got to their hotel with time to spare and was able to greet them when they arrived. While waiting we sat down at a penny slot and won $28 in less than 5 minutes (Tracy gave me the winnings to spend at the LNS). After Wanda and John left their luggage with the Valet we headed to lunch and the LNS. We had a nice lunch at the Deli close to the LNS and talked and talked and talked. Then off we went for some stash shopping. Wanda got several things she had been looking for and I got a couple of things too. We then headed back to the hotel so they could check in. It was such a wonderful visit and felt like we were old friends. As you can tell from the picture below we never shut up, even while the guys were taking our picture. Thank You Wanda and John for a great time.

I have shared so many pictures of Madding I thought the grandboys deserved equal space. This is the oldest of the two boys. Jedi is 8 soon to be 9. He is the BIG brother. Manda finally got a good pic of him because he was playing a video game and didn't know she had the camera out.
