Would you please pass the Kleenex?

All good things must come to an end, as they say. This unfortunately includes wonderful trips that you take out of town and never want to stop. DH and I managed to cram a LOT into the two and a half days we were in San Diego. Unfortunately, this also means that while we were out and about, my allergies caught hell for it and now I am paying for it. Ah, well. I've never minded the morning after as long as I've had the night before, eh? :D LOL!

We went to the USS Midway, dinner with his sister and her family, the beach, the mall, the zoo and managed to somehow or another find time to drive around his old stomping grounds from when DH used to live there. Had an absolute blast, natch.

DH took me to dinner on Sunday night, for my birthday. We went to the Studio Diner , which was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives . DH had been there before and the place did *NOT* disappoint. I had the open faced turkey sammich with a Gone Bananas! milkshake and this is what came out:

It was totally epic and I thoroughly recommend going there to eat. All in all, a five star weekend for sure! :)

Managed to get some stitching time in on the drive there and back. Yesterday, I finished part one of the SanMan Originals Four Seasons Fatties SAL. Me being me, I can't leave well enough alone and I changed the colors that were used. Here's a pic and the stitchy notes. Again, this is a member only pattern, so you have to sign up for the message board in order to get it.

Design: Four Seasons Fatties SAL

Designer: Sandra Dering of SanMan Originals

Fabric: 28 count white evenweave (possibly Lugana)

Fibers: Main border in DMC 310

Spring wording used Crescent Colours Summer Spray, border in Anchor 242

Summer wording used Crescent Colours in Cupid, border in Anchor 246

Fall wording used Anchor 359, border in Crescent Colours Tangerine

Winter wording used Crescent Colours Blue Moon, border in Crescent Colours Grannie Annie.

I decided on the coloring on the fly and I like the way it turned out. I am considering using some seasonal type buttons in the corners, but I will wait until it's finished first. May as well take my time and enjoy it. :)

Hope everyone is having a good day. I'm off to find some meds for this screaming headache I have. :/
