Our Weekend: The Princess Bride Version

“Westley: Who are you? Are we enemies? Why am I on this wall? Where is Buttercup?
Inigo: Let me ‘splain.
No, there is too much. Let me sum up.”

So this is me summing up this past weekend in pictures:

Friday night visitation from Tara, with extra tasty spinning goodness. Nadie is using her osage orange spindle with some navy/purple/jade sliver from the magic backroom at BWM. Tara is using her Trindle with some gorgeous stuff … was it camel/bunny /silk maybe?

Sumi decided to ‘ help ‘

After a chilly ‘is it really spring’ night, we woke up to:

I produced some of my world famous ‘OMG-we-have-visitors-coming-and-no-decent-biscuits’ amaretti [ and my equally world famous ‘ What’s-in-the-fridge-and-pantry-that-I-can-turn-into-soup’ Soup ]

Sumi spent some quality time in the garden with her dog.

Shar and Toni arrived from Melbourne via  Bendigo Woollen Mills [ which for the uninitiated is 40 or so kilometres past my place ] so a slight detour … but hey! … all’s fair in love, war and the pursuit of a yarn bargain.

which brings us to sunday which was spent


blowing bubbles by the dam

more Nadie spinning – and trying to get an accurate picture of same

there was also the finishing of one long term project, some dyeing, and the starting of something new

but that’s for another day

    What a lovely weekend. Sumi looks so in control of everything – you can tell who’s top cat around your place. I love BWM but have never managed to make a visit. Should remedy that soon – its not THAT far from Canberra.

    It was actually some superwash merino from southern cross fibre in a club colourway called ‘puppydog tails’, but as i am currently spinning camel bunny silk on another spindle and was rabbiting on about it, you weren’t far wrong.
    also yay for a photo where I do not look like a total porker – at last.
    also – merino, puppydogs, camel, bunny, silk, and porkers – could i fit any more animal references in this reply?

    Sounds like a very pleasant way to spend a not-quite-spring-like weekend!
