WiP/FMC/DWM - Still in Vegas

You'd think Vegas would be exciting, right? We're pretty far from the Strip, and with no car and a seven year old, there's not much to do.

Except for the pool. I think the Dude is growing gills. We easily spend over three hours a day there. I've done a bit of hand stitching, but it's really too warm to have it draped all over me. Not to mention, the fear of the Dude splashing pool water on a 50 year old quilt!


{Did our tenth anniversary Ocean's Eleven-style, watching the fountains at the Bellagio.}

We did make it to the Strip a couple times, and saw KA, a Cirque Du Soliel show, last night. And I did manage to steal the car and visit a couple quilt stores one day when my husband was flying the night shift. By the way, Fabric Boutique and Quiltique - lovely. Just lovely.

We try to stay inside during the hottest part of the day, so I get some quiet time to sew. {In between rounds of Blink. Oh, so many rounds of Blink.}

I finished the Striped HST top. It was pretty easy once I had a "design wall" {flannel-ish back of a vinyl tablecloth} to keep track of the stripe direction.

Made nine-patches as my leaders/enders. They will be paired with snowballs.

And today, at the pool, I started the HST lines on the Spongebob blocks. I know, I make Vegas seem seriously exciting. Try to contain your jealousy.
