I worked on the Vegas piece, which I need to take into Strawberry Sampler by the end of the week (sale ends Saturday). As you can see, I finally woke up and smelled the petite treasure braid. (Um, sorry, bad mixed metaphor.) I am slowly replacing the orange DMC with something a little more sparkly. Because you can't have too much sparkle when it comes to Vegas. Fortunately have completed that large expanse of white, and just need to fill in the cirlces that hold the letters, stitch the "star" in the upper left corner, and add white beads for the lights on the edges of the sign.
The dude and I had a very busy weekend. First we worked at the library's book sale. We brought home about 12 books for $10. I can't wait for the fall book sale because that is supposed to be the big one! On the way to the library, we ran into our neighbor who was running a car show at the high school. After our library shift, we stopped and looked at the cars even though I have no idea what I am looking at. We chose our people's choice based on the hood ornaments. I did appreciate seeing that cars that were built the year I was born are "antiques." I am given to understand there is a different standard applied to cars. Then my younger niece got dropped off so mom could go see the Bosox. She "helped" with Stella. We went to the dog park but had to leave early because there were a lot of big dogs who were getting a little aggressive. Yayo was disappointed because she didn't get to see a "Dane." Unfortunately, my skills to make animals appear on demand are limited, and that is hard to explain to this little girl.
Sunday dawned drizzly, so my cousin didn't take her intended bike trip. This meant that we could hit the Greek fair for lunch at noon. I had tiropita and a gyro (the bread was to die for). The dude had lamb kokkinisto and my cousin had pastitsio. (I always hated when my mother made that.) For dessert, I got kourabiedes and baklava. The baklava was so buttery. Mmmmmmm. I had to buy a second piece, but I shall try to savor it over the course of the week, instead of the course of 4 minutes.
