Be the One

Hello friends. As I've posted last time, I started another project. But before that (here we go again), the last installment on Dallas, lol.
I just have to recommend this. For lunch, we came in a bit early so there were not much peeps inside. It's music themed, DH would have loved the place. Servings were enormous (hey, "everything's big in Texas!) and very delish. And the service was sooo excellent. Alice was so accommodating and even gave a mini tour of the place (must have that tourist sign written on my forehead, lol)!
We were seated at Stevie Ray Vaugh area.
There are two autographed guitars by the entrance. Above is B.B. King's and below is Paul McCartney's (can't get a decent shot with the glass)
There's B.B. King on one side. There's also an area for Elvis but I didn't go there since there were peeps at the bar.
"Don't you feel guilty eating all that" (is that what Mick Jagger is trying to say?)
Next, Ripley's Believe it or not and wax museum:
What's Dallas without cowboys,
As expected, it was dark inside so not much clear pics to show.
We would have wanted to see more of historic Dallas, but as it turned out they close early. We got to the Heritage Village around 3pm and the place was already deserted (so we went to the outlet mall, hah!)
It's "a living historical museum with costumed characters portraying life in 1840-1910."
We also wanted to go to the Arboretum and Botanical Gardens (I love gardens, but not gardening, haha) another must-see accdg. to the visitor guide- "a 66-acre display garden with spectacular views of White Rock Lake." But with aching feet, time constraints and hundred degree temp. we had to pass. Overall, it's an enjoyable trip. We three girls had fun together:)
Okay, now here's the stitchy part:
 This is Abby Angel "Be the One" by Craftways (printed in 1985)
 Instead of the light blue fabric, I'm using a 14ct. Navy Blue aida. I went with dark blue since Ziggy is stitched in white, and I want the two like night and day. I hope it comes out nice.
Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!


  1. Scenery from Dallas you have brought us , nice that you had fun there and so many great things have been seen . I was never in America , let alone in Dallas more interesting I find it . Your Stick image on the dark fabric is great , I'm curious how it will look in the end .
    Greetings from far away , Sandra

  2. Looks like a fantastic trip!! Wish I was there :)
    Great new stitchy start. Looking forward to see it grow

  3. Neat Dallas adventures. Never would have thought to stitch it on navy blue. Cool.

  4. You saw a lot of sights on your trip! Glad everyone had fun. I love the fabric choice for the new piece; wonderful progress so far :-)

  5. It looks like you had a lot of fun in Dallas, thanks for sharing your pics. Your new start is lovely :)

  6. Glad to know you had a fun time. Love your new start:) both day and night is a good idea.
    I had a plan to make a crochet cushion for my daughter last year with day theme on one side and night on the other. But then after making some motifs for night, I dropped the idea of making other side as day because we both are too lazy to turn it every day:) and that would confuse us further whether it is day or May be I should make two separate cushion covers, but let me concentrate on completing the existing one.

  7. Sounds like you had fun :). I like the contrast of the navy blue

  8. I love all your Dallas pics! Looks like SO much fun!
    Your new start is super cute!!!
