Great Fall Weekend!

It is the nicest weekend! The weather is beautiful and the leaves are starting to change. On Friday I bought some beautiful Indian corn from the farmer’s market and hung it on the front door. The colours are so exquisite.

Funny enough, I cast on the Aestlight shawl in a really similar colourway of Creatively Dyed Calypso.

I replanted a bunch of small succulent cuttings and they are growing up nicely.

On Friday night I went to the ballgame and saw the Jays beat the Orioles again. It was a fun game and a nice night – not too hot and the seats were 100 level so it wasn’t so cramped. I think going forward I am going to always sit in that level. It’s overall nicer – the food is even more decent, not as many vendors interrupting the game and just better in general.

The other thing I am working on this weekend is getting all of my bisqued pottery waxed because I have to glaze this week for next weekend’s firing. Here are the backs of my waxed buttons:

Yesterday I went downtown to the fashion district on Queen and bought a bunch of nice beads from Arton beads, some yarn from Americo Original and had an awesome lunch at Rivoli. It was my first time there but won’t be my last. I had the Laotian Spring Rolls – they were really yummy. My company had the macaroni and cheese (with peas…yum) and the Siam Wookie Balls – not just a hilarious Star Wars reference but these awesome little sticky rice balls coated in toasted sesame seeds. They were chewy, crunchy and had a nice toasted taste. Really yummy!

Then we wandered through Chinatown and Kensington market and I stopped into Lettuce Knit’s new digs.  The new space is nice and I picked up a beautiful skein of Madelinetosh Prarie and some cute bumblebee buttons.
