Up this weekend: My plan is to get some housework out of the way so i can concentrate on more Ravellenic projects. I was to continue making progress beading the mermaid...there are so many beads left to do.

The other thing I want to do is a little stash diving to see whether I have the yarn I need for my Stitches West ETC weaving class. It calls for worsted weight yarn, which I don't normally buy.

Other than that I plan on enjoying my time off!
