Tonight's post will be heavy on pictures, and short on text because it's late. And I'm lazy when that happens.

In this shot, I had showed Alfred some of my cotton, and he wanted to try spinning it. I was impressed by his prowess and form. (that's not irony, that's wordplay, btw.)

En garde!

What does this have to do with cotton?



Beating cotton with a stick

Well, Steph wanted to show us how to bow cotton. It's an old technique to fluff the cotton to get it ready to spin. Here, Cecilia's giving it a try.



Carlos likes the brownies

Brownies with ice cream and raspberry sauce. What could be better? Well, other than fiber... and good friends... And just so you know, we started acting goofy before we had dessert. And they were not those kind of brownies. But they were good.

Obviously, we couldn't keep a straight face for long... wait- where did Carlos go?




This picture is from Sylvia's camera - things were obviously going downhill fast...

Waitaminnit, how'd you get the transporter beam?

Better question-- if you've got the transporter beam, why ain't you sharing? or visiting? (big grin)
