Sunday's celebration was exciting. My niece and nephew ate only candy the entire day, with the exception of an afternoon snack of OJ and pretzels. Can we say Sugar High? They were cute and had lots of fun on their egg hunt, playing with silly Uncle Chris, eating Aunt Diane's desserts, and spending time with their grandparents. They were hardly phazed by the presence of thier new puppy, whom Issy called "the gurl puppy." They got her the day before and kept her in her crate in our yard when she wasn't romping in the yard. (She couldn't come inside because we are allergic to animals. She survived and so did we!) Some photos of the fun:
I realized after everyone had gone home that I only took photos of the kids and dog and none of the adults!
After all the chaos of yesterday, I needed to wind down, so I wound my easter egg yarn into a ball and spun a bit. The spinning continued today too.
The purple-blue yarn is merino that I bought on the last yarn crawl from Twist. I love how it feels, even though most of it is overspun. I don't know how to ply yet, so it is a single strand. The rainbow yarn is from roving I bought last year when I was learning to needle felt. I bought this huge bag of rainbow dyed roving and only used a little bit of it. I still have a chunk of it left. This wool is scratchy, so it would not make anything comfortable to wear. I may use it to make a little felted bowl from the book One Skein.
Today was beautiful out. I spent the afternoon driving around on errands with all the windows down. The pear tree in our yard is in bloom--hopefully will get some fruit this summer if the bees do their job!
