A long week and a Tour

It has been a rather long week.
I've been at the shop each day. And then i've been working on this when I get home.

What is it you ask?
It is the old kitchen cupboards (taken down and saved by the former owners) that I, with the help of my friend Unger, am turning into an Armour. It might also serve as on of the "leg"s for a new craft/computer desk.

I have also been stopping by the new coffee shop here in my little nordeast neighborhood. They really made the place bright and clean (the old one was getting dingy). The coffee is good, the food is good, you should go there so that they can be sure to stick around.

I have also been spending the first few days of my weeks stopping into local liquor stores to see if they have any Nordeast available. Sadly the only place I can seem to find it is at the restaurants. But hey, we had a great meal tonight.

As for the tour part of our title, well i'm trying to participate in the Tour de Fleece this year. I didn't have a lot of time today to spin, but I did make a nice chain-ply bit of yarn. It is even semi-consistent. In the above pictures you can see the 3 stages the fiber went through.

I think I might even be bringing the wheel to knit night this week.

So ambitious, making your own armoire!

What's the name of your cute little coffee shop?
