I am a little late with my TUSAL this time around. Rick & I have been on a mini-holiday from home and work. It was so nice to get away even if only for very a short time. We saw a movie (Transformers) at Warren Theatre in Moore, Oklahoma. It was lovely ~ we had the balcony seats where waiters come to your seats to serve food and drinks. Nice! In addition to beer & popcorn, I had a "yoda" which was slightly green and tasted like liquid Jolly Ranchers & vodka ~ LOL! We spent the night in Bricktown in Oklahoma City. Our room had a big whirlpool tub and a wonderful view of the baseball park. Dinner was at Crabtown, across the street from our hotel. Their catfish was heavenly. I even got to do a little stitching and stashing. Here is my ORT jar with my pretty new ladybug scissors:
As you can see from the ORT Report photo, I didn't have much left to stitch on my WIP. I finished it up when we got home and sewed it into a cute pillow, just in time for the 4th of July holiday. The alphabet was charted with random letters in the darker brown. I changed them around to my initials, SDB. I was able to find the perfect fabric in my stash ~ always a plus!
Design ~ Happy Flag Flag Day
Designer ~ The Trilogy
Fabric ~ 32 count tea dyed Jobelan scrap
Fiber ~ DMC
Today I am kitting up for the next exchange in the Ornament Swap. This is going to be a really fun design to stitch. Will stitching Christmas stuff will make me feel cooler? I hope so. It's still sweltering hot. Blech.
TUSALer's don't forget ~ July has two New Moons! The next one is Saturday, July 30th.
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
