I am here! Negligent of my blog as usual. I sure could have sworn that I had posted more than ONCE this month....sorry musta been busy. or did I just write those posts in my head?!

First things first....there is a long promised photo of some now not as recent "stash enhancement" that took place at the Sedalia Spring Fiber Festival. I cannot say enough nice things about that event. It was wonderful! The vendors and the covered area with SEATING to eat and enjoy your knitting and the conversation with others as we took a break from checking out all the fiber. Mary .... I can't believe that you were just behind us. It was funny how I could tell from your picture and you from mine :)

Now...back to the stash....
After we left Sedalia the two of us that HAD NOT eaten the cheesecake were getting a bit hungry but because TWO of us HAD indulged we went into Bedford to do a bit of shopping before heading back to our cabin at the lovely and peaceful Smith Mountain Lake State Park. We first had to stop at the ABC store not to be confused with the ABC along....totally different. Goodwill was right next door so in we go to spend a bit more time. Pam found a Rubbermaid Wreath storage box that she thought would be perfect to store "stash under the bed"
brand new and everything ( this becomes impotent uh I mean important later) We will have to skip the fact that I ran into Walmart to get some limes and fell off the curb on my way out, which enabled me to find my fellow travelers in the parking lot by the sounds of laughter coming from the van. I mean LOUD laughter.
Finally we have all reached a degree of hunger and we have a nice dinner at Olde Liberty Station which came highly recommended by my dh...they also sold cheesecake.

We ended up at our cabin and decided to display all of our "finds" in none other than Pam's wreath box. Which is hard to see with all of our Loot in it. This one is the girls : Sandy. Pam and Becky.

This is a closeup of our haul for the day. Not all duplicate skeins were added in as things began to overflow a bit. And we couldn't leave the important things out like the limes.

All in all a wonderful time. I am already looking forward to next years. No matter what the weather!

WHOA! That was quite a haul! Can 3 knitters really buy all that in one afternoon?

Glad to know that Sedalia gave such great SEX! (wink wink)
