Stitcher's Paradise Las Vegas NV trip

In between my travels, I was able to visit the Stitcher's Paradise in Las Vegas. Really tried to get there a second time but there really was not enough time. I got myself a needleminder that I had drooled over online and a LHN and Primitive Neeldworks piece. I also got  Earths Angels by Glory Bee (not photographed) and a few pieces for my sister in law also not photographed to get her hooked. Not sure if it worked... My 19 year old niece is a cross stitcher too to my surprise but I did not get to take her to Stitchers Paradise. I did not see her work but she is more of a modern ( Star Trekkie) type of stitcher. Not sure if she would have liked any of the pieces at the cross stitch shop. At any rate I think I got her hooked on crochet. She like her aunt loves purple and she is well on her way to making a beautiful scarf! Cant wait to see the finished product.
Not sure how much stitching time I will get in today. Came off the flight very sick, spend majority of day in bed yesterday. Did finish a good book though! Laundry is all done, completely unpacked. Have some homework and recorded tv shows to catch up on. One will facilitate stitching... the other will not.
Hope to post a finish on my first Christmas ornament by LHN

Back from Vacation

What a wonderful time we had!! Las Vegas, California and Arizona. Lots of shopping, eating and fun with family!!! Not much stitching done other than crocheting. Finished a blanket for the new nephew. Taught my niece and sister in law how to crochet and got to visit Stitchers Paradise in Las Vegas. Picked up a few goodies there that I will post later.
