What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?

Yeah right... maybe if you're not a blogger! But I must share all the juicy details with you all. least most of them :)

I spent severals days last week with my friend Nicol at her house in Las Vegas. We did plenty of Vegasy things including seeing Spamalot with Johon O'Hurley as Kind Arthur!

we saw Rossanne Barr in lingerie ( I could have lived without that one...)

we did some gambling

ate at buffets and other awesome places!! (I love me a double double with cheese!)

and did lots of peoplewatching. Somethings can only happen in Vegas - check out this car...

But - here is what I saw most of the weekend...
Petunia! She loved her ball....

She would stare it for hours if you let her...


She could catch it like a champ!


and then more staring until you threw it again...


and eventually... tired puppy

Oh yeah - Fred was there too....

Petunia and Fred

Here's what they fed me...

My oyster

just kidding - it was actually a present from WHN - he got me an oyster with a pearl inside!

One of the highlights of my trip was getting a chance to spin on a wheel instead of my spindle! I had some trouble at first - but I did eventually get the hang of it!

My first attempt at spinning on Nic's Majacraft. A little uneven...

My first Hand Spun

My second attempt...a little better... I also dyed it.

My final product - I love this one!!

It's handspun made from a purchase at Sheep and Wool

We also dyed lots and lots of yarn! (nope you can't have any - it's all mine!!)


Here's one of my favorites:

Florence colorway

We dyed roving too
Emergency 911 colorway

It was a fun weekend - thanks Nicol!!!
