Not much stitching, but a little stash

This has been a long week of module review for my course.  Today was a comprehensive review before practice exams start tomorrow.  I did have yesterday (Saturday) off and it was perfect since it coincided with the Knowledge and Needles Nashville open house.  First though I had to head to the Campbellford Legion to play darts with my hubby, my MIL, and another dart friend.  Unfortunately we didn't get to go on.  This did mean I could head to K&N quicker though.

I was greeted by Ann and then followed the laughter to find Christin, Tracey, Dani, and Sharon all stitching away.  I did a quick look at the new goodies and went back my car and grabbed my stitching bag.  I pulled my 4 seasons out, but didn't really get much done.  Beatrice also stopped in and although she didn't bring her stitching, she stayed around and chatted with us.
I ended up getting some nice patterns.  I had a crazy headache (stupid PA system at legion was malfunctiing)  and didn't feel like looking through fabric like I wanted to.
Below are the new pattens I got (pics stolen from net)
Ink Circles - Rosetta

Ink Circles - Nut Jobs

Ink Circles - Wild Berries

Ink Circles - Metamorphosis

JBW - French Country Strawberry
After we all settle up with Ann, the 5 of us (Dani, Christin, Beatrice, Tracey, and I) decided to go to the newly opened Lone-star for Dinner.  I guess a ton of other people also had that idea and it was going to be an eighty minute wait.  I DON"T THINK SO!  We decided to do Montana's instead.
After, at Dani's suggestion we split a Mile High mud pie. I had not tried this desert before, and I will have to say it was VERY GOOD.  Don't believe me?  Just look!

Well, back to review!  Other than my WIPocalypse check in this week, I don't think I will be posting until after my exam on Friday.  Have a great week everyone!

Bonnie, that is great stash and I'll bet your fingers are just itching to start one or two of them.

That dessert looks incredible!

Good luck on the exams. I'm sure you'll do great.

Sounds like it was a fun outing at Ann's. I'd hoped to go too but my son landed in for the weekend so that put a kink in my plans.
I love your new stash additions. They should keep you busy!
As for the dessert, well I really didn't need that so it's just as well I wasn't there. It looks so rich and yummy!

Nice Stash! I just completed Metamorphosis myself and it is at the framers already.
Good luck on the exam.
Happy Stitching
