Our bonus for the day was Greyhounds in Gettysburg. Behind the outlet mall were vendor tents selling anything and everything Greyhound, and there were Greyhounds everywhere. Almost all of the mall stores had a sign in the window stating that dogs were welcome inside. A few had signs saying that owners were welcome inside, and dogs outside. Somehow I just missed the large parade.

It's too early to plant in the ground yet, but several of these will go into pots, and we can go ahead and get them potted. The others will stay safely on the front porch until all threat of frost has passed. We've had such strange weather lately, that we don't want to take any chances.
Our next stop was a fabric shop, Needle & Thread, which specializes in Civil War reproductions, and fabric for reenactment costumes. There were two men in the store while I was there, purchasing fabric and trims for their costumes. As you can imagine, Civil War Re-enactments are big business in this area. There was also a family in the store with a greyhound, so I asked some questions, and learned a little more about the group. And yes, it WAS a fabric store, and some fabric and a couple of books may possibly come home with me.
And lest you think I did no stitching today, rest assured that I did a tiny bit of crocheting while DH was shopping, and I intend to spend the rest of the evening settled comfortably in my chair, with cross stitch and applique at hand.
Contentedly stitching away.....Sunny
