TDF Day 10

I spun a new-to-me fiber tonight, a black Welsh Mountain roving.  It spun up so nicely like so many of the medium wools do.  (It was a bit more boring to spin the brown and not multi-colored roving but I imagined a roll of dark chocolate and did just fine!)
In the yard, our Angel Trumpet is blooming away. 
The bloom is very large and is pretty heavy;  waxy looking, too. 
There is no sweet aroma but the inners are fascinating! 
Even the buds are unusual!  (And large) 
A nearby bromeliad is happily blooming. 
I also found a bit of fabric for a romper for Eli.  I have a master sheet I trace off the patterns....I used this pattern to make rompers for his dad.  I'm feeling nostalgic!

    Love the chocolate yarn. It does look good enough to eat.

    Pretty flowers, too...
