Anyone? Anyone?

I was disappointed not to have hit the sale at In Stitches in Alexandria yesterday morning; I had to go to the College Park campus extra early to get a parking spot near my class (and paid the $15 to do so) because Maryland was playing E. Michigan at home. The tailgaters ringed the big parking garage and were grilling the yummiest-smelling food. Since I got there a couple of hours early, I had the opportunity to wander the campus, eat at the campus McDonalds and then settle into a big comfy chair at the student center and stitch a while on this before my accounting class. I did make it finally to the needlework shop on the way home after class, but with only 1/2 hour to spare before they closed, I really didn't have time to kit up one of the new charts that have arrived from Attic Needlework or from England (and y'all completely decimated those charts--pretty slim pickings when I got there at 4:30--like a bunch of turkey buzzards over fresh road kill). I did pick up a few extra skeins of AVAS for this project--it EATS floss. I'd hate to run out, so I bought a few skeins of colors I'm using a lot of on this.

Pink, enjoying the New Yorker:

And Elvis' kissable lips. He sends you a big "mwah" for the week.

I finished my homework early today, so I'm off to cook something and read the NY Times with what's left of the day. As always, I'm hoping my dreamboat has a column today. In case you haven't read him, check out this column on love and economics:

Dreamboat failed to mention rabbits in the pets as insurance against way ward love......Elvis has a cute little mouth, for sure. Is Pink's ink stained from the New Yorker? Both the Spots like the New Yorker too.

Dang, I didn't know about that sale! I can't fight over stuff though, lol. I'd rather pay full price! I could smooch those sweet bunny lips though!

I was one of the vultures at In Stitches Saturday! I got the last copy of Blue Ribbon Designs Creepy Crawly. Sorry! I don't know if you can go on weekdays, but they are having the sale all week.
