Catching Up

    I have been trying to update weekly, but I fell off the wagon.  I went for a 'girls weekend' in NYC July 15th.  Three of us left on Friday and got back Sunday night.  We had a great time!  We stayed at the Plaza Athénéé.  Friday night we saw Pricilla Queen of the Desert, then we dined at the Blue Fin, the food there was fine, but the service was terrible! Saturday we saw Memphis, then we dined at Chez Josephine what a great place!  It was owned by Josephine Baker and her sons still run it.  The food was delish! The service was wonderful, I need to go back and bring DH.  The shows were fantastic!  If you are in the area and can get to one of these shows, it's well worth it.  I would see either of them again.  During the day Saturday we went to MoMA to see the Alexander McQueen Exhibit, Savage Beauty.  All I can say is WOW!  We had a wonderful afternoon, and enjoyed brunch in the Members Dining Room.  Sunday we shopped Madison Ave., all the way down to Rockefeller Center, then we had lunch at Bice, wonderful place, best Cosmos EVA! We did a lot of walking, but it's good exercise and we had a wonderful time, I didn't want it to end.....
      So on to the stitching!  The week ending the 15th was the UFO/SWIP SAL on the HAED Board, I worked on Bewitched.

I saw the Australian production of Priscilla a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Your weekend sounds wonderful.
