Weekend follies

Hi Everyone!

It was a lovely weekend here! I guess everyone was out enjoying the lovely weather too! We had made plans a long time ago to go and see the Terracotta Warriors. You can find out more about them here We had a really good time but couldn't take pictures inside the exhibit, so here are a few of the guys in places where we could take pictures.

Someone sent me this link about a funny song. If you want a giggle...take a peek! Make sure to turn the speakers up! LOL

Forgive me for the "potty humor" but as we were walking from the metro to the museum I passed by this window. We had a moment of hysteria and for some weird reason I thought my Mom might enjoy this picture. Ben mentioned that if it had Bill Clinton's picture on it we could buy some for her. (My Mom is NOT a fan of Bill Clinton) So, Mom, this one's for you! LOL

I had a lovely surprise in the mail today. A few weeks ago I sent for the Rose Quaker and the Christmas Quaker Bellpull. I was beginning to give up hope when they arrived in the mail today. I'm so excited, and maybe one day I'll be able to get them started. For now they'll sit in my stash pile until a sale when I can get the fabric and fiber. They are are pretty! You can check out their picture here.,shop.product_details/flypage,flypage.tpl/product_id,3439/category_id,151/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,1/vmcchk,1/ and here.,shop.product_details/flypage,flypage.tpl/product_id,3464/category_id,151/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,1/

Not much else going on...I did work on a few UFO's I've had sitting around. I decided I'm going to refrain from starting anything else until I finish some stuff sitting around in mid-stitch so to speak. I realized earlier today that I missed the anniversary of my blog. So, I decided I'm going to think a little bit about this, and have a give-away as soon as I get my act together. It may be a week or more before I decide what to do. I'll send a message through the yahoo groups I belong to when I'm ready. this space!

Oh, I just loved how they did the Terra Cotta exhibit. I went over Christmas and "enjoyed" standing in line outside in the 30 degree minus windchill. Luckily the exhibit was well done enough to make up for it.

Enjoy your new stash!

What an interesting exhibit! thanks for sharing the pics with us and the song from the past, lol. I needed a chuckle. The Rose Quaker is one I've never seen, but it is beautiful.
