. SO lettsee what happened in the past week. Well everyone (sister, her BF, MIL,FIL, mom, and stepdad) arrived on thursday. We had arelaxed evening and then on Friday we ran around a bit doing some shopping and finished up the stretching and framing of my damsel fly . I skipped the big graduation and just went to the departmental grad at 3pm. I was only one of 2 masters students who showed up (there were 6 of us graduatng) but thats ok...I got to were a silly cap and gown and who wants to pass that up!. I gave my advisor the finished damselfly afterwards...see photo. I think she really liked it.

We all went out to dinner that evening and on Saturday we had the backyard party/BBQ. A pretty good turn out, with the usual results - people show who you didn't expect and people who didn't come who you did expect-. Party only went till about 11...we started early and are not so young anymore.

My parents left monday to spend a few days in Wilmington, NC and my sister and her man suck arount till today, Yesterday we hiked around Pilot Mtn., but mostly I been downloading music to put on my new IPOD!. Yep I got one for graduation, now I won't be hiking across the undra this summer with only my thoughts to keep me company.

So anyway the house is a wreck and there is about 20 loads of laundry to do, and all the good photos have to be sent to me from the parents with the good cameras (hence only 2 photos for you today.

Officially I would like to offer up this pattern for sale and the others like it for $6 each.. just leave me your email if you are interested

Wee beasties 1, wee beasies 5, and wee beasties 6.

All of these are in excellent condition (well the one I did is a bit wrinkled but unmarked)

Congrats on graduation, and congrats on your darner. I've stitched that one, so I know how much *ahem* fun it can be.
