Eye Candy plus F.O. Friday...

...two in one post! First the Eye Candy.

The Husband continues to fuel my photographic needs by buying new flowers. This week, he brought home some carnations:

Up this weekend: It's a 3-day weekend....YAY!

I have a few household chores to do, but they won't take long. My main goal is to finish plying Toulouse [Ravelry] so I can have another F.O. for the month. After I finish that, I'll cycle through the current WIPs list.

I need to piece the backing for the quilt and make the quilt sandwich. The piecing part won't be problem, but if it's too hot, I won't want to be crawling around on the floor pin-basting the quilt sandwich. We'll just have to see what the weather does.

I have a few more stash photos to take. I just keep attracting spinning fiber (looks away, whistling...)

I really need to get serious about the stitching projects, but they just haven't been able to hold my attention.

Is it the end of the day yet?
