Happy Dance plus WIP update

2 weeks since my last post...not planned, but what can you do.

On Friday the 7th after work, I started my drive towards Kingston.  I picked up Rebecca, and we headed on our way to Ottawa to Dani's.  We arrived around 9:30pm and were met my Dani and Christin.  We sat up and chatted for a bit and stitched.  In the morning we got up had a quick bite to eat and started stitching while we awaited for our other friends.  We were soon joined by Lynn, Kathy, Beatrice, and Lori.

We had a wonderful day chatting and stitching.

Sunday Morning, Rebecca and I headed out and I dropped her off at her Mom's place.  After a quick bite to eat (thanks again by the way :) ) I left her with her family and I headed on my way back home.

Last weekend was lower key.  I cut my grass Saturday morning and had planned to stitch most of the day away.  Silly me decided to take a Benedryl (since I get itchy after cutting grass).  I ended up sleeping for 3 hours and was awoken by my mom around 1pm.  I checked text messages and realized I had to do a fast clean of the house and get some groceries since I offered to cook Blair and his friend Mike dinner.  I did manage a bit of stitching inbetween, but not as much as I had planned.

I have done some stitching during the nights, catching up on TV shows.  Hubby and I decided that we are sick of Bell's run a round and are getting rid of our Satelitte Dish, so we need to clean up the PVR.
I think I have worked on all my major WIP's over the past 2 weeks.
See below for some pics.

As for the Happy Dance... I finished the orange butterfly ( JBW designs).  It was the WIP I carry to work and in my Purse.  I worked on it a bit while waiting for blood work on Wednesday and haven't been able to put it down.

Love the butterfly! Those patterns are such fun to stitch. Your larger projects are coming along nicely. I love the colors of the Ink Circle one.

The butterfly is so pretty! Your other wips are amazing - the kaleidescope - wow - never would I have the patience to stitch that. I will really enjoy watching your progress!

Sounds like you had a really fun day with your friends - nothing better than that!
