OK - on to more Stitches fun!!!
There was a motley crew that stopped by our booth to pillage. We welcome that pillaging too!
Then there was a nice dinner on Saturday night with a few of our closest friends (that's my dad standing up back there just having himself a grand 'ol time!):
There were a few famous rubberneckers in attendance:
Then there were a few glasses of wine consumed (dang Katey!)
And some artistic displays:
Someone needs to send me the picture of the Sanguine Gryphon dancing on the table too!!!
All in all we had a GREAT weekend and really enjoyed time with both old and new friends. The Stitches event went VERY well I think and they will definitely be back next year. We'll see you there!!!!

Here is the hotel we stayed at - very posh!
Here is us at the booth:
Here is myself, Sandy and Jen at our wonderful dinner at the hotel. We could NOT get service in the bar so we just went to the restaurant instead.
Here's a bunch of us knitting in the lobby. This is me, Katey, Phyllis, Jen and Jen's mom. What a great crowd. Later on that evening Linda and Carla showed up to join us. Wow - that upped the craziness and hilarity!!! I am surprised we didn't get kicked out.
Here is Wayne and Jen's mom. This woman was a hoot I tell ya!! Not surprisingly, she got along very well with my husband!
And Cristi was so kind to work in our booth for an hour or so. She is welcome to do that ANYTIME!! She sold a ton of stuff in the short time she was there! I couldn't believe it!
OK - more pictures tomorrow!

We had SUCH a fun weekend! We went down the street to a little coffee shop called the "Lilly Pad" to see our friend Bill play. The first night we were the only ones to show up because of those tornado things hanging around so we got a private show from Tommy Thompson (the guy he was playing with) and Wayne, Bill and I just hung out with the owners and enjoyed our private show! Then, we went back the second night to ACTUALLY see Bill play. There were a lot more people there that time. We got some pictures of Tommy but we forgot to take pictures the second night when Bill was playing!
Yesterday we spent our day planting some of our colder weather plants (cabbage, lettuce, brussel sprouts, etc) and just generally working around the house. It was a beautiful 70 degrees outside! I transplanted lots of lillys to be around the pond so those are going to look great when they all start filling in. Then we went for a great walk and then relaxed in the hot tub. It was a perfect day!
Today is definitely back to work though! I still have some pricing and packing to do and we need to start loading the trailer. Plus, we have several orders to go out tomorrow morning so I will get those packed up and off to the post office.
Here's a sneak peak at our kittens being themselves. They had a great time climbing all over the car for a while. I took this picture through the window hence the weird light reflection thing at the top.

This is about 1/4 of the roving we will be taking with us to Stitches. A good bit of the roving in this picture is going to be ON SALE too!!
I have mostly finished dyeing for Stitches though I need to do a few more things that we have sold in the past few weeks but no big deal. Today I am finishing up a wholesale order for another super secret squirrel mission that I can't wait to tell you about!!
Tonight, we are off to hear our friend's band play at a local coffee shop (hopefully we can stay up late enough!) and the rest of the weekend will hopefully be low-key. The painters are still prepping our house and should get started with the actual painting on Tuesday or Wednesday. In the meantime our living room is still cluttered with all kinds of stuff. They are doing a really great job though and all of our windows are now REALLY CLEAN! I love it!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!! Don't forget about the contest over in Klub Knit Witch on Ravelry!!
