Another Good Weekend

Saturday I took a mini-roadtrip to Biloxi.  It is only about 2 hours away.  I drove by the beach, smelling the salt air and anticipating my vacation in August when we go to Orange Beach!

I visited a quaint little cross stitch store in Ocean Springs, MS: Threadneedle Street. It was cute.  They had a great selection of specialty threads.  I walked away with two Mirabilia patterns that were on sale for half off!  Yippee!

November Topaz Fairie:

Did a little bit of shopping at the Gulfport outlets before heading home to watch some of the College World Series.  I was able to see the end of the Vandy game and then all of the Florida - Texas game.  Great that two SEC teams are in the winners bracket.  Sucks that they have to play each other on Monday night.  South Carolina plays tonight.  Here's to hoping that an SEC team takes th e championship again this year!

While I was watching Florida beat Texas, I finally completed another page of Dragon Knot!!!  Woo hoo! That leaves only six more pages left.  Three of those six pages are not complete pages.  In fact, if you put those three together, you might get half a page of stitching.  So, I'm thinking I really only have 3 1/2 pages left to stitch. 

I've put this design aside again for just a little bit.  I've picked up the Mad Tea Party design.  Hoping to finish a 2nd page in that design. 

Father's Day morning was spent at the pool.  My dad is currently on vacation so we gave him his gift a few days ago.  My sister and I chipped in to buy him a remote controlled helicopter.  He was like a little kid on Christmas morning.  He spent the rest of the night crashing the helicopter all over the place. 

Tomorrow it is back to work.  Boo hoo!  I really need to win the lottery!  Working really cuts into my fun time! 

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Your Dragon Knot looks fantastic. Not too long to go now anymore, although 3 1/2 pages are still quite an amount of stitches.
Love your new charts...especially the November Fairie.

Looks like you got a couple of bargains with your half price Mirabilia's - nice picks.

Your dragon knot has come on leaps and bounds, good going on that.

Sounds like you had a great trip. I've never been to see the sea, but I would love to. Your Miribilia patterns are wonderful. So is Dragon Knot. I bet you're really jonesing for a finish now!
