It can’t Be over Already!

It seems like I just got here and it is time to go home already! I was enjoying my last few hours of sightseeing on a beautiful morning as I walked up Michigan Avenue. By now we had become good friends as I had walked this way many times over the week.

Now why couldn’t it be this beautiful when we went to the baseball game? A great reason to go back!

I have lots more to share with you with many more pictures that I need to import to my computer… and then, and then it’s Destination Dallas Trade Show in a few days. I will be teaching a class for Amanda Lawford and the rest of the time will be shopping and looking for all the new canvases and threads. Dinner reservations are already in order…right Missy?

But for now back to Chicago. A wonderful city with lots to do and amazing restaurants. A few people told me that it is quite the food city, and it did not disappoint! Sightseeing, wining and dining and great stitching too, what could be better than that?

My finale was the Life Patron Luncheon. A delightful lunch of soup, chicken salad with balsalmic dressing and garlic toast.

A gift of a little cooler which will be great to keep your lunch or bottled water chilled when you go to a stitching get together.

The tables were beautifully set with chocolates! What a great way to start lunch.

You know the saying eat and run? well that’s what I exactly did! as the timing for my flight and the end of the lunch didn’t mesh the way that I thought it out in my mind.

There is a speaker at the end of lunch and I heard that it was going to be the descendant of Mrs. Lincoln’s seamstress. I read that book and would have loved to have heard her… but didn’t want to miss me flight and disappoint the feline residents of the house.

and until next time…keep on stitching

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years.

  1. LOL…without my reading glasses, I thought the tables had piles of Thread Heaven, not chocolates! I love both… Glad you had a fantastic time in Chicago. I’ve only seen the airport and the Grand Central train station. Must make plans to visit and see more one day.
