It's Stampede!


I know it's been quiet on the blog, but I've been Stampeding! Calgary's annual rodeo and fair (and the greatest outdoor show on earth) runs for 10 days starting with the first Friday in July. It's always a great time, but super busy. So far, I've caught the art buyers night, the preview of the grandstand show, the parade, a rock concert, a pub crawl, several volunteer shifts, the rodeo, the chuckwagons. I've also eaten way too much beef on a bun and too many hot dogs. And that was just the first 6 days!

I did manage to sneak in a few new beads (no stitching though)....
