Back From a Week of Travel

I was in Philadelphia Monday through Thursday last week, and then on Friday my mom, sister and I headed to Las Vegas for the weekend. We stayed at the Las Vegas Hilton, which was very convenient since we just used the Monorail to get around (except for one taxi ride back from the late lunch / early dinner we had at the buffet at the Wynn). It was just too long of a walk back to the monorail station after having shopped at the M&M Store, the Coca-Cola store, and the shops at Caesar’s Forum before heading to the Wynn for what promised to be “the best buffet in Las Vegas”. (As FYI, it was good, but I didn’t think it was any better than the Sunday brunch buffet we had at the Hilton before leaving for home.)

The main reason for going to Vegas was to see the Donny & Marie show at the Flamingo. It was terrific – and even though we had the cheapest tickets possible, we were “upgraded” to better seats in the showroom theater.

I didn’t have a chance to post my next two 2011 quilt finishes, so here is #4. (#5 is done and I did post it before it was bound, but don’t yet have a photo since it’s already found a new home in my parents’ family room.)

I posted a photo before this basket quilt was quilted and bound, but the custom quilting Catherine Timmons did was truly fabulous.

I’m home for a couple weeks before heading off to Orlando for work, so will hopefully have time to post some new projects I’ve been working on over the next several days.

Have a great week!

You have really been a travelin' girl, haven't you? The D&M show would be fun to see - I remember watching them back in the day - I think Donny is more handsome now.

I absolutely love your quilt!!! I love the colors, the baskets, everything. It's stunning. congratulations. Safe travels to FLA!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your trip! Dear Marc was in Vegas for work last week for about 5 days--but I don't think he went to that "best buffet".

Beautiful quilt and lovely photos too.

I just love your quilt. The colors are so nice. I like things with a little more color.

Sounds like a lot of fun in LV. I haven't been there in years, but I remember how much fun it was. I wouldn't have minded seeing Donny and Marie either. I used to watch their show when I was younger.

Great finish
