...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:
Double Lemon Calibrachoa (new flower for me):
and Flamenco Rumba Cuphea:
For the Finished Object portion of the post, I finally skeined Deep Teal Dream [Ravelry]:
and the close up:
Merino-Silk top (4.5oz) from Wonderland Dyeworks;
294.1 yds. chain-plied, 14 WPI
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?
