Title Goes Here*

On Friday morning, I worked on the Las Vegas piece. Which is due Sunday. I have no idea how I am going to finish it. It will be complete, but I had hoped to put it in a box. A box I haven't purchased yet. {Sigh} I could do a pillow or wall hanging in this amount of time, but I really wanted to do the box. Maybe I'll go look for one tomorrow. Anyway, on Friday morning, the old lady conversation ranged from how fabulous Kobe Bryant is (when Mabel's holding forth, you don't really want to mention rape accusations) to retirement homes and long term care. It's wonderful and remarkable to be around people so different from myself. I will show this piece when it's complete.

In the evening, I went to stitch night with my Strawberry girls. This week, I was one of the younger ones again. I guess all the young hipsters have weddings and graduations and children's baseball games to attend. I worked as usual on the marquoir while wearing a shirt that matched my stitching. This is what it looked like last time. I thought I had gotten more done. I'm going to blame Stella. First, she made me late (I was home alone and had to walk and feed her before I left.) Then, we spent an inordinate amount of time talking about Stella. But I did get a good tip about helping her sleep through the night. I will be so happy when we're sleeping through the night!

I know what you're thinking, shut up already and tell us who won the charts! That honor goes to Jane, and her husband's ill-fitting tux.

* Did you see this? It's every editor's nightmare.

Who needs editors? That newspaper does! Thanks for the laugh!!

The comments were as good as the error. Plus they seem to be great at weeding out spam comments. Can't wait to see the finish on Las Vegas!

The Marquoir is looking fabulous. I have a hard time stitching and talking at the same time - the talking always wins out. Hope you can find a box to finish the Vegas piece. It will be great as a box.
