Kaleya and I had a wonderful weekend visiting Kalonji in Memphis. It was nice to have a quick getaway weekend. We didn’t do a lot, hung out in the downtown area. On Saturday we went to Peabody Place and had dinner at Issac Hayes’ restaurant. The restaurant was very nice! It was not expensive and it had a great atmosphere. There is a lounge area with couches to wait in while your table is being prepared and there was also a live band. We had a lot of fun and I think Kaleya enjoyed it as well 🙂
I also got a chance to visit a cross-stitch store in Memphis– Stitcher’s Inc. I didn’t buy much, but I did pick up the Stoney Creek Reptiles & Amphibians leaflet and another leaflet from Pinn Stitch — One Hundred Chinese Calligraphy of the Character Fu. I got the Stoney Creek leaflet b/c there is a design of a snake in it. My oldest stepson has a great attraction to snakes, so I’ll stitch it for him. Kalonji picked out the Pinn Stitch design and I think it will be neat as I’ve never stitched on red fabric before. I also got the latest issues of Sticher’s World and World of Cross Stitching.
I’m off to start the snake design. At this point, I don’t plan on working on it for long. I’m getting eager to rotate a little more frequently, so maybe by the weekend i’ll have a new WIP.
