Hello! It has been quite a while! Went on an awesome trip to Las Vegas, and now back at home where the job search must continue!
Vegas was awesome. It is a very misunderstood city; there is way more to it than the Strip. Bf and I did the Strip for maybe a day and a half, but te desert is what captured our hearts. Pretty sure I’ll move there one day. We went to Red Rock, Valley of Fire, and the Lost City.

Of course, like any fevered, fanatic stitcher, I had to look up and see if there were any stitching stores around. Thankfully we found one: Stitcher’s Paradise (kinda sounds like a craft-themed casino!), and as my BF bragged to some of the lovely ladies there, “This is the only place in Vegas that we’ve been to twice.” Such a ham! 😉 Anway, I got A LOT of new stash and was so excited to support my xstitch “problem” and their business.

As much as I loved the desert, I was ready to go home to see my Bilbo. He stayed with my parents and had an awesome time running around. We got to my parents’ house at one AM from the airport that’s about an hour away. It was crazy and exhausting, but all I cared about was seeing my dog again! I’m sure all pet parents can relate. Not embarrassed.

lI’ve been working on some new projects. Both purchases from Vegas. First an all beaded cow from Mill Hill, “Elsie.” I feel in love with beading with the beehive kit that I HAD to get another. Second is Little House Needlework’s “Giving Thanks.” This is the first time I am using non-DMC, hand dyed thread.
I hope the weather is lovely and your stitching time’s aplenty!
