Is there any way to spend a busy, rainy weekend than with good friends and good food?
This was the big city wide Lowell Open Studio weekend. There were lots of people in and out and our studio was voted the one with the best food – LOL! Not a surprise to the friends that came by to visit.
On Saturday, Brian popped in before heading off to his crochet teaching gig in Billerica. He returned later just before closing and he, Alicia and I headed off for margaritas and mexican food at La Carretta in Nashua – yummo! Also visiting Saturday were Sheepish1 from Ravelry, Amy, Lucia and Wendy from my knitting and spinning groups. They came to hang out, spin, knit and eat. Brian, Amy and Lucia all scored big at the Hub Mill Outlet and their 20% off sale! I didn’t dare go and check it out.
Then on Sunday, IndigoNightOwl from Ravelry and two very dear and long time friends came by. Lisa brought her 2 year old son. What a cutie pie he is. He was totally enthralled with my spinning wheel, so he ‘helped’ me spin. He is one smart cookie as he figured out how to make the wheel go in either direction and he knew I was trying to pull the wool over his eyes because he figured out that I wasn’t putting the wool into that hole (the orifice)! LOL! He was so cute and clever.
Just look at those brown eyes!
He promised to come visit me again soon. We will have him spinning for real in no time I am sure! I am totally smitten with him 🙂
The other thing I am smitten with is this! I won it on ebay this weekend. Alicia and Brian were laughing at me because I got on to ebay with my cellphone after a couple of margaritas and upped my bid. It’s a good thing I did!
I am sooooo psyched!
