it sucks to be me

Just kidding! We went to see Avenue Q yesterday and I nearly fell out of my seat laughing - it was so great. I am so glad that we were able to get tickets on the last day the show was in town. We'd been wanting to go see it in Las Vegas, but the travel budget won't allow for that for a while - I think it will be short trips close to home for us this year.

We also went to the first game in a 5-game package that we bought for Portland Beavers baseball games, on Saturday night. It was a good time, but since the high Saturday was 98 degrees, the first couple of innings we were melting - I took along a scarf to knit on, but it was just too hot. The next game is Friday night, complete with fireworks afterward. I hope it's not quite so hot...

We were too busy *doing* this weekend for me to take pictures of anything, and the weekend just flew by (don't they always?). I am still waiting for my new Bernina to arrive, even though when I was trying to decide whether to buy it, they said "you could have it in one week." I guess "could" was the operative word in that sentence. Oh well, I continue clearing the junk out of the craft room in anticipation of spending many evenings in there once I finally get it.

Other than waiting for the new sewing machine and planning the bags I'm going to make when I get it, I've been working on WendyKnits' Nanner Socks (although I've had to rip and start over, boo), and cross-stitching on my Quaker Turtles, for a class at Acorns & Threads. I'll post some pics when any of those projects gets interesting. Although at some point I'm going to have to stop all this stitching and start cleaning the house, since Megann will be arriving to visit in less than a month!
