What's really funny is that I happened to run into someone I know at an "event" on Saturday at "my" Bernina dealership, and she's the one whose quilt I had so admired that I bought this kit — and it's very unusual for me to buy a kit; I think I've only done that once before.

Lake Las Vegas (google for more links) is an area that not enough people know about or visit. The setting there is just beautiful, and there is a little "village" with shops and apartments. We've gone out there several times for various events, and one of those events netted me a gift certificate to eat at Xing, a latin-oriental fusion restaurant. My husband and I decided to use the gift certificate this past Friday, so off we went.
In most Mexican restaurants, customers are immediately served chips and salsa while waiting to order and enjoy their meal. Here, we were served tiny chips with a choice of three dips. Hmmm … can you tell that we enjoyed those dips? ;) One was a Chinese-style mustard, another was a slightly spicy sweet-sour concoction, and the third was a very hot sauce — which my husband adored. As for me, I stuck to the other two. ;) My husband also enjoyed a beer, while I ordered a glass of the restaurant's sangría. Yum!
