Eye Candy Friday...

...and they say it's going to be another hot weekend. This means that I'm going to melt while I'm quilting...oh, yay.

Up this weekend: Spin In tomorrow! I haven't spun anything since Tour de Fleece in July!

I'm taking my friend Loretta and we're going to teach her how to spin. I have some nice white Corriedale for her to start with and then a nice dyed Falkland. I'm going to lend her one of my spindles so she doesn't have to buy one. If she likes spinning, she can invest in a spindle of her own.

Other than that, the major thing to work on is the commission quilt. I need to finish machine quilting the squares and sew on the binding. Then it's all hand-stitching from there. Keep your fingers crossed that I can finish the machine stitching this weekend!
