Just back from a whirlwind trip to Vegas.  Our eldest prefers to fly out of Vegas back to college so we decided to take a couple of days to catch some shows before school is back.
Here is my table tonight (Tuesday) showing how we left it on Sunday!  Another shirt pocket for me to stitch on and the fabrics at the back are what I picked up last week for a little project or 2 I have in my mind!  Also, some scrummy buttons we picked up at Jo-Anns on Saturday.  My daughter now loves Jo-Anns so I am sure we will have a shopping trip there when she is back for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
 One of the main reasons for our visit to Vegas (other than seeing our big girl off to college)!  We love the Cirque shows so we saw this one on Sunday night.  This is probably one of my favourite Cirque shows.  My absolute favourite was the Elvis one which sadly closed last year just after we saw it!
 The other show we saw was the Blue Man Group which we promised our youngest boy we would come back to see when we couldn't squeeze it in earlier in the summer. Have to say it was such a fun show and he absolutely loved it!
 This is the parade they do prior to the show.  

Looking forward to seeing your work spaces this week.  If you don't already know you will find the links and more info on Julia's blog!

Sounds like a fun trip. I have seen the Blue Man Group, too. They are really fabulous, and of course, it brought back wonderful memories. Happy WOYWW from #10.

BTW, I love those buttons, too.

My husband took my oldest who turned 21 in April and his two buddies to Vegas for 3 days to celebrate. They also saw the two shows you are speaking of. Kim #52

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Wow! That's looks you had a lot of fun in Vegas. My little bro used to live there so he'd take me to.... all the thrift stores as he was looking to outfit his house. We didn't see shows. I've seen the Blue Man group locally-lots of fun.

OOh what a fun trip. was talking only last week to a chap who spent his summer hols in Vegas last year and he waxed lyrical about Cirque's O a teeny bit jealous! Like the idea of jazzing the tshirts up with a neat pocket, what a great idea.

It sounds like you had a great time in Vegas, Deb! The shows there are always spectacular, so it's nice that you have the "excuse" of taking your daughter there to fly out! How wonderful that you have passed on the JoAnn tradition to her!!

Happy Belated WOYWW! Thank you for the visit to me and for your sweet get well wishes! I'm taking it easy, as you can tell by how long it has taken me to return the flavor of your visit! Enjoy the rest of your week! Darnell #16
