Frogging, trunk show and concert

It was a busy, busy Saturday
First thing in the morning I made a post, then I frogged the roof and windows

I used DMC 310 instead of 610,
I thought it looked a little too dark, but didn't check the code until I was finished, a big no no Much better

After my hubby went fishing in the morning, we headed to Bass Pro Shop, he went there. I went to http://www.inspiredneedle.com/ to see The Primitive Needle truck show.

The frames were ridiculously fantastic.

There were lots more, Cathy's wall was full. Thanks for letting me take photo's and post them, Cathy.

You know, I didn't leave the store empty handed.

"Witches Nine", "Wicked Alphabet" and "Tombstone Spots"

Fabrics: 36ct Hertiage, 40ct mellow and 40ct Earthen.

I was so inspired, I even kitted up the "Witches Nine"

I could kick myself, I wasted battery on the wind farms on the way back home .They do soothe my soul.

We were only home 15 minutes before we had to leave for the concert. We had an opportunity that day to buy two tickets for Kellie and her freind, so they got to go, yipppeeee!!!! They didn't get to sit by us, but Kellie got to go to her first concert.


Then I camera went totally dead, Arghhhh!!!!

I miss taking snaps of her in the back of an old truck suspended over the audience.

Carrie http://www.carrieunderwoodofficial.com/put on a spectucular show. The Son's of Sylvia http://www.sonsofsylvia.com/were awesome and Craig Morgan http://www.craigmorgan.com/was fabulous. Dusty and his girlfriend were there two, but we didn't get to see them, it was a full house.

Thanks so much if you are still with me.

This post, I believe is my longest one, lol

Now... off to take a power nap.

It's amazing what a difference in color will do to a piece.

LOVE seeing all those pieces! I'm just dying over that gorgeous fabric that you bought :o)

Glad to hear you had a nice time at the concert. Great pics!

Those pictures of the trunk show are wonderful - those are some wonderful frames! Did you have a good time at the concert and come out a fan? It looks like that was a fun time as well!

I like the color change you made on the roof. Looks much better.

Suzanne said...

Bass Pro for your DH and needlework store for you, that's a win win situation, yeah! I love the photos of all the samplers and the frames are really awesome. Glad to hear that you had a great time at the concert.

Siobhan said...

I got to see Lisa's trunk show this past summer at The Strawberry Sampler. Fabulous!! She has such fantastic designs, and a great eye for picking out frames. I love Witches Nine... I've had it sitting in my drawer next to my stitching chair for over a year, hoping to get to stitch it soon. I'll enjoy seeing your WIP!

GREAT pics from the concert!! It must have been really neat.

Siobhan said...

PS--love the wip, too!

Margaret said...

Love those frames!! And the stitching too of course. Can't blame you for buying some stash. These designs will be such fun to stitch.

Lucky you - getting to see and hear Carrie Underwood in concert. She seems like such a sweetheart and has a powerful voice.
