First it was an hour or more drive to get to the studio. They give you a number when you arrive and you have to stay in numerical order. My lucky number was 224. They only have about 250 in the audience so we were near the end of the line.
Drew Carey is a saint. He is relaxed and friendly and talks to the audience during the breaks. I'm sitting next to a crazy person who keeps yelling "I love you Drew". We are sitting a couple of rows behind the bidders. It is funny seeing myself as I am about a head shorter even sitting down than my DIL. You could tell who would be chosen as a contestant from the moment we got there. There was a girl who was excited and dancing and waving her hands the entire waiting time. Six hours. She ended up winning the showcase by a mere $73. What an experience! Thanks for taking me Meagan.
I finished up the Edinburgh Reticule. My tassel isn't perfect and I may remake it. My pearl cotton has run off somewhere so I can't do it right now.
I have one side of one wing embroidered on the Summer Casket Butterfly. Seven more to go.
I picked up the scissors fob to Shepherd's Fold. Not much left to get this baby finished.
