A Happy Dance, A Mystery Part Finished, and a Black Beast!

I had a fantastic weekend visiting with Ann! Oh and well we stitched a lot too! Actually almost every waking hour! LOL.

I started out early Saturday morning and drove into Kingston first. I had to stop at the Die Cast Car Gallery and pick up something for Todd's upcoming birthday. He collects die cast models. Then I proceeded up to Beth's house where we had a great visit, I hated to leave there was so much catching up to do! But I'll be seeing her again on the 1st of August so there will be more time!

I hopped back in the car and drove the last leg to Brighton where Ann (owner of LNS/ONS
Knowledge and Needles) was waiting for me to arrive. We stitched all afternoon, I worked on part 1 of Midi Mystery 1 and Ann finished off A Little Peace and Quiet from Dragon Dreams then she moved onto working on Dracolair's Gaelic Banner. Ann prepared an excellent dinner for me then we watched two movies that we rented while we stitched, Miss Congeniality 2 (not as funny as the first but still good) and Hitch (a little too slow in places it was an okay movie).

Today was another stitching marathon while Ann's husband Dan made us breakfast, lunch and dinner! I finally finished Midi Mystery 1 - Part 1 this afternoon (took a full day longer than I thought it would). This photo really doesn't do the colours any justice, but trust me its stunning and vibrant!

Since it was (well it still is according to my clock) Dragon Dreams Sunday over at my BB, Needle and Thread I started the current freebie in the Dragon Dreams online Newsletter. Which I finished shortly after dinner. Here she is :

After my Happy Dance it was time to come home, as I had a 3 hour drive to do. Thank you Ann and Dan for having me over this weekend and just letting me chill out, stitch, and eat way too much excellent food!

Next on my stitching list is to get part 1b of Mini Mystery J done.

And finally... a big, scary black beast! (my baby)

Hi Dani, sounds like you had a great time over the weekend! Congrats on your little happy dance too. How's your CB Sampler coming along? I haven't picked up mine for well over a fortnight now but I hope to get back to it later this week after finishing this month's ornies.

Sounds like a fabulous weekend :) The Dragon HD is adorable. Can't wait to stitch that myself. And your baby there is just magestic! Beautiful fur, and look at those eyes !

I have such a soft spot for black cats. We had one when I was a little girl that I loved with all my heart. Lucky you, you got so much stitching in!
