flat track racing
Saratoga only has flat track racing in the summer, but harness racing goes on most of the year.
Saratoga Springs is also known for the performing arts and has this statue in front of their visitor center:
But this weekend I was stuck inside all day except at night when I went for a quick walk and saw ducks everywhere:
They were always in groups of 3. Sometimes 2 males and 1 female, sometimes 2 females and one male, it was a little odd how they were all spread out on my walk back to the hotel. There was also a Baby Gap and I found a couple shirts for DD. It was my first time at a Gap for DD and their clothes are really cute.
Baby Gap shirt :)
And since this is a stitching blog, let's get on to the stitching!
The conference involved a lot of sitting in one spot while we watching lectures. I debated about which project to bring, but I finally decided that "colouring in" might be the best choice so I could keep my attention on the speaker.
I prepped The Princess and the Dragon beforehand:
and I decided the part with the Princess was a little too fiddly to have to follow a pattern and pay attention to a speaker. So I started tracing out the legs of the dragon to allow me to just stitch on black without having to think about it much.
I managed a decent amount over the weekend and got to here:
A few more rows of body and a few on his feet. I think this might stay out for a bit to get more of the outlining done. I'm enjoying how it all comes together.
I'll join up with the Monday Stitchery Link-Up Party with Super Mom again this week, and make sure you check out everyone's updates!
