Road trip to Long Island

TGIF!  The summer weeks are flying by!  I have made some progress on American Quaker Band Sampler.  I love the crispness of the black letters.  More than half way now!

Last weekend I took a trip to Long Island to catch up with friends and see my Mom for her birthday.  

On Saturday evening I went to a minor league baseball game with friends to see the Long Island Ducks!  It was a special military appreciation night.  There was a presentation to the forces attending the game and the home team guys wore camouflage uniforms.  Such a beautiful stadium!  

Lots of great fun with audience participation games between each inning, with the help of the team mascot - Quackerjack!  

A grand finish to the evening with a win for the home team and a fireworks extravaganza! 

On Sunday I took my mother out for a birthday lunch at her favorite chinese buffet.  We had a nice time celebrating and catching up.  Then I was on the road again back home.  

Hope you have a stitch-y weekend!  I hope to do the same!  Enjoy!  xxxx

Fabulous progress on your Quaker, Krista! I love the pop that the black thread makes in the alphabet. It looks like you had a wonderful weekend at Long Island.

Enjoy the coming week!
