Well - I see it has been long time since I've posted anything! Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and made comments. (Special thanks and nose hugs/ear hugs to Dilly & Bob T. Bear). A quick update, I did make it through my day of ditziness and got to Las Vegas last Thursday on time and ready for action! It was great to see my parents and sister, we ate too much, stayed up too late, but you can NEVER say you had TOO much FUN!!

Just in case you get the opportunity, go see the show "Jersey Boys"!! It was fantastic and the music was so fun - it took me back a long way. The show is about how Franki Valli and the Four Seasons got started - and includes almost all of their hits. Very well done show and I would see it again at the drop of a hat.

We also got to see "Mamma Mia" playing at The Palazzo. This is another great one and if you like the music of Abba, then it is a must see! Lots of fun and laughing and chair dancing- LOL. I believe the movie based on this show is coming out soon, and I think I'll have to see it, too!

Warning - if you are heading to Las Vegas anytime soon, be prepared for HEAT. I knew it would be hot, but somehow, when you are sitting by the pool and it is 114 degrees out you still don't feel quite prepared for it. I managed 2 days poolside for about 1 hour each before wilting and running back to the air conditioning.

All in all - a fabulous trip, but I have to admit that Monday evening it was great to see my husband at the airport ready to take me home. I missed him and my wee beasties a lot! There was quite a ruckus when I walked in the door...I ended up sitting on the floor while they jumped all over me (not complaining here - I loved it!).

So - now you know what I've been up to. I need to get back in my sewing room quickly as there are a bunch of things I need to get going on:
  • finish up my 4Seasons Quilt Swap - Summer quilt
  • start & finish the next part for my Quilt Group meeting on 7/7
  • start on the Miniature Booty Swap quilt
  • finish a quilt for my Uncle Tom

Yikes! And, in 2 weeks we are going on a motorcycle vacation for 4 days through Hell's Canyon and central Oregon mountains.... time's a wasting, I better go right now!!

Hi Becky, thanks for the kind comment on my blog. I love your Yorkies! I so miss mine, but am allergic to all animals now, and had to use an inhaler daily, so we decided it would be wiser not to have another dog. We had Lucy for 13 years. Give your furbabies a big fuss from me!

I LOVE Vegas. But my favorite show there would have to be Cirque du Soleil Love, the beatles show. Amazing.
