Chicago…My Kind of Town!

I am chanelling my best Frank Sinatra as in my mind I can hear him croon Chicago…My Kind of Town!

I’ve never been to Chicago, well except in the airport and I plan to take in as much of the city that I can. A Cubs game on Saturday, sightseeing and a train ride to Geneva on Sunday so I can visit Designers Desk, the shops, the restaurants and of course I have to experience a real Chicago dog too! and that’s all before my class starts on Monday.

Photobombing by AlleyCat, canvas by Raymond Crawford and finishing by Cindy of Needlepoint Plus of Oregon, stitching and stitch guide by me. So if you are headed to ANG Seminar and would love this awesome memento of your seminar experience, come visit us Wednesday night at merchandise night or is it Expo night? Canvas, stitch guide and a really cute hot dog magnet could be yours!

I am taking my laptop with me, but not sure how much blogging I can do while I’m there. There isn’t WiFi in the rooms, you need to go to the lobby…which from experienece I need to do around 5AM and when you have roommates, its not the most hospitable thing to do!

Somebody has made herself comfy and sorry AlleyCat, you will need to stay home!

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. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?
