Some cousins from Fargo, North Dakota have been in Kansas City for a Machine Quilting Showcase, so have driven over to see them twice, worked at LNS-The Sunflower Seed on Thursday along with making preparations for the meeting. I am guilting the cousins into sending me something from the Nordic Needle in Fargo when they return home. The first day they were apologizing to me for not asking if I NEEDED anything from the Nordic Needle. The really funny part is we talked on Sunday night for 45 minutes before they left and neither one of us once thought about the Nordic Needle. We will see how this story ends.
Tonight when we were down there we went to dinner on the Country Club Plaza at George Brett's, the restaurant and then walked around in the area. This is a high-end shopping, restaurant and entertainment district in Kansas City. Showed them several fountains in the area. Kansas City is called the "City of Fountains". You will also find out that I am a HUGE KC Royals baseball fan. George Brett has always been one of my favorites. Even though they are most of the time the worst team in baseball, I will always be a Royals fan.
Here is a picture of my Muffin in her new pink dress. One of my stitching friends, actually my adopted sister, bought this for her and gave it to me for Muffin on Thursday, so we had to try it on. It has a sequined pirate face on the back of it. She was not to crazy about it. After we got the pictures taken she wanted it off. Not much for wearing clothes. Her Aunt Mary loves buying things for her. Muffin says next time I see her I will give her an extra few wet kisses.
Oh, by the way, I finished stitching the new Kansas Christmas design for The Sunflower Seed. Those locally will be able to see it in the shop soon and the pattern should be available in the near future.
Well, off to bed with me. Early to rise to get to the church on time (LOL) to set up and do the meeting. Next blog should have some more stitching pictures.
