The next couple of weekends will be quiet, giving me a chance to recharge the ole batteries before going to choir retreat the beginning of November. I'll be able to finish up the cleaning and spend some quiet time on projects that need to be done, including a block for a quilt that is being made for one of the directors who is retiring at the end of the year. Now that the evenings are getting darker sooner it's easy to just settle into the recliner and do nothing. I'll have to make sure that I do stay active.
The evenings often include a little feline pedicure. Last night's was Buster's turn. He's not too thrilled with having his toes done but he has gotten better about letting me do it. I got a nasty surprise when I discovered that he had somehow gotten one toenail completely ripped off the quick. He hadn't been limping or showing signs that it was painful, but it was not pretty. He's spending time in the house for it so that it can heal up.
So what's this wheel thing?
This is some of the Colonial top I got at OFFF. It's spinning up beautifully. I've moved on to some of the Shetland/ alpaca mix I got so that I can make up a hooded scarf for the winter. Goody Baynes is a good worker, she is.
