I got up this morning and immediately started sewing halloween costumes for a party at our church tonight. I don't know why I still, after fifteen years of having children, think that I have until October 31st to finish costumes. I ALWAYS have to finish them early for some event or another. This one was particularly early though, and since we'd planned to be gone on a camping trip, I hadn't planned to go.
With the spirit of last minute panic egging me on, we finished costumes just in time to be 15 minutes late. We had a great time, and I think the kids looked great!

Here's my little bit of spinning: Its merino/silk purchase at the Shenandoah fiber festival. The picture is bad because it's midnight, and I have no good light. I dyed the roving last week, and have been surprised and pleased by the variation in color. I expected the silk and merino to take the dye differently, but there's much more variation that I can't explain.
