Weekend antics



Mary-Kay hooked me UP. I won a contest she held on her blog, and this is what came in the mail on Friday.


This is a huge skein of Merino/Tencel in a colorway called, Marnie's Wine. I'm swooning just thinking about it. She asked me what my perfect colorway would be and made this just for me. It's more lovely than I could have imagined. But she didn't stop there.

Two skeins of her colorway, Boo, and nearly half a pound of a merino/silk blend roving. I'm so spoiled.

Cosmos blooming


The garden is blooming like crazy, though we have admitted that our choice of flower is a bit tall for the window. After a few more blooms, we'll cut the top tier down a bit. We've also reseeded the area on the right to get more even coverage.

Thea finds religion

This statue of Buddha caught Thea's eye on our walk and she took some time to show it her tummy and kiss his face. She has also attempted this maneuver with some outdoor cats. They were not amused.

Early Halloween Party


Someone at Leo's work held an early Halloween party and invited us. She had her barn decked out like a haunted house and almost everyone came in costume. We did a dry run of our get up for this year. I'm the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Leo is dressed as a pirate because, as is stated in the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, all humans evolved from pirates.

I definitely need more spaghetti, but I'm really happy with my eyes and meatballs.



The roving is gorgeous! Love the yarn as well, so pretty.

The yarn is lovely and the costumes are so much fun! I love, love, love Halloween parties for grown ups. It is so nice to see adults at play.

HA! Great costume!

Halloween party already!
I wonder if Mum will do something special this year... it's always a made rush and we ended up just crowding around the candles and that's about it.

Love the flowers at the window!
They look tasty...

One of the skein you got from Mary Kay, the Boo, reminds us of Halloween, it's got purple and orange! What will you use it for? Can't wait to see a knitting piece with purple and orange!

Sweet costumes! I have little to no Halloween mojo this year...it's kinda sad. I may just need inspiration to strike. Belly rubs to the little Buddhist. :)

Awww, I'm glad Thea has picked her religion. Maybe Buddhism will bring a little calm into her life *NOT! We've always joked that Rex is Jewish. I'm not quite sure how it started 15+ years ago. I think it had something to do with Christmas. Either that or because he won't eat pig ear treats....


(Oh, and I totally need to win one of Mary-Kay's contests!)

You guys look great...the yarn is to dye for (pun intended) and dear Thea...give her a tummy rub for me please? :)
