Our early morning flight was good. The pilot pointed out the Mississippi River and we saw the Grand Canyon from the air. On the ground we met up with a classmate who now lives in Arizona. We saw a couple of shows, we walked the strip, we were guests in the Diamond Lounge, we ogled and ah'd at the opulence of the casinos, saw the light show on Fremont Street and saw some scantily clad folks and sights for sure.

|The Venetian and The Flamingo.......they may look close but the Venetian is about a 30 minute walk from where we were.|
When at full force the sound was incredible. It was like the whoosh you hear when fireworks go up as the high water was sent up......even higher than above.

So not much stitching has been done the last two weeks. I did take Miss Mary Mack from La-D-Da for the plane. EZ-PZ right.....small, one color. Well when you sit in the middle and you feel like a T-Rex with your arms all squeezed in....not as much progress as I thought I would be able to accomplish. I've added the second "buttons" and start "All" since I got home and BAM......looking at this right now and singing the song.......I see I am short one line of "buttons".....time to frog I guess. Geez, this piece is not proving to be as EZ-PZ as I thought it would be!
So back home and on my way to Thursday night stitching I had to pull over and take a photo of the beauty from where I live.
Now time to regroup, clean house, winterize the deck and yard, finish fall decorating and head out again next week for a get away with a work mate.
Stay tuned for information on a Stitch-A-Long that I will be announcing before the end of the month.
