I'm going to make this post fast. There is a family issue happening and as much as I would love to sit here and play all day, I don't think I have the leisure.
First for the fiber enthusiasts: Pictures of my friend, Donna's, work. (Donna is Baby Anna's grandmother.)
Donna at her wheel.
Shetland waiting to be spun up.
Homespun: The grey skein is from the grey roving above.
This skein is plied from the green above with silk.Her favorite shawl.
Close up of the color change.Goregeous lacework that I want to say was her daughter-in-law's wedding shawl.
The artist modeling another shawl. Love these colors.Spindle, plied, and original roving.

Anna with me.
FH carving a Celtic design onto a piece of leather that will become the sheath for my camp kitchen knife. If you biggify the picture, the knife in question if sitting on teh bench next to him. For the record, I made the knife, not him. The bag I made him is on the ground next tothe bench. He's using it for his larger leather tools.
That's all for now. I have to scramble to do some laundry and possibly pack. Not sure yet.
