Paint It Pretty

Yesterday was a painting type of day. I had to catch up on some orders, 
so painted a few skeins of yarn.

My friend, Anne, popped over just in time to have her hair painted. 

I was just about to throw away the bit of purple dye when she showed up and with her beautiful black hair, the purple and gold showed up nicely.

I'm finally getting around to painting some furniture for me. I've had these two little tables for decades and they were looking a bit dull.

So now they're just primped up a bit and I like them so much better.

They were in the upstairs hallway but I may just have to keep them 
downstairs a bit so I can admire them.

We've had these ugly beasts for 25 years. They've held up nicely, especially with 3 boys, but they are just plain Janes. I'm looking for new ones but they can't be wider than these at the base and I haven't found any I like yet. 

So they got a mini makeover. Will probably do something with the tops, but not sure what yet. But I like them this color better already.

While I was painting away, Anne was carding my Corriedale and silk together. 

My next show is July 20, the Fiber Farmer's Market in Vienna, Va. so we'll have plenty of these ready for the spinners.

If I don't spin them all up myself first! Yummy!
