As usual, it's been longer than I intended since my last blog post but we've been doing all kinds of things around here.
First up, I got two skeins of yarn spun from the roving that my Mom, Karen, and I dyed up while they were here at Christmas.
I'm very happy with it! It's exactly the weight I was trying for. I have five more braids to spin up, then I'll start the knitting. One skein has 172 yards and the second has 168 yards.
Over the weekend I updated my business website with three galleries of customers' quilts. Check them out here!
Speaking of quilts, I just finished the quilting on my friend Calista's quilt. Here's a detail shot of the rocket:

Isn't that the coolest thing ever?!?!
Greg has been really busy this weekend, too. He got a new (used, but new to him) table saw, and a new jointer. He's been working on a gorgeous fish tank stand, and he'll put the finish on next weekend.
Here's the table saw:
And the jointer:
I'm so glad he's having such a great time using them. I've given him a list of pieces of furniture I'd love to have him build. LOL!
