A surprise and lots of stitching

So i said a little white lie on my last post.  I said I was off to the Knowledge & Needles spring Retreat on Friday, but I actaully arrived on Thursday....My reasoning?  We attended Ann's 60th SURPRISE Birthday Party!  She was totally surprised!!  It was a great night and I got to see a few of the ladies that were not going to be at the retreat.

Well for some reason I was not in a photographing mood.... so I do not have before or after pics.  I wish I had of taken a few pics... but what can you do.

First I stitched on my IC Bramble and Rose.  I am doing it on 25ct over 1.  I had a visit from a tiny frog, but it wasn't too bad.

Then I pulled out IC Kaliedascope.  I worked on this for the rest of my stitching time.  I did manage to get almost all the black outline done on the 1st quarter. 
Here is a pic of it... which I stole from Ann's site

On Saturday we went for lunch at Ann's.  Dan and his helpers cooked us a really good chicken and rice dish.  For desert we had a brownie bottom bailey's cheese cake... so yummy!
I did a bit of damage to my cheque book in the store, but not too bad.  I picked up a cute little pair of scissors, TIAG Celtic Banner, and Mirabillia's Sabrina. 
Now to try and get something else done so I can start one of these...or something else.

All in all it was a really good weekend.  Love seeing the ladies again!

I may just pull that Kaliedascope out of my pile since it is so colourful. Very nice that you had a great weekend, and here's to this one too.
Be always in stitches.

Thanks for your help on Sunday Bonnie. At first there was just you and me in the store then it was full. I appreciated that you stayed longer than planned on your only day off!

It was a GREAT weekend! I did more dammage to my waistline than my chequebook! I so want to start kaliedascope!
