Bunny projects and new hand dyed Cashmerino

Driving home from the market at Southbank yesterday, I was lucky enough to glimpse a gorgeous rainbow and noticed exactly where in the paddocks next to the road it was ending! hmmmm I could go and look for that pot of gold, I thought.....unfortunately, the more I drove to catch it, the more it moved away! It was magical and reminded me so much of the ancient story told to me that Spirits always move the objects you desire, making you travel more and more trying to obtain it. Eventhough this sounds like a devilish plot, you can also see it as a magical way to see things that you may never have encountered just going from A to B. Sometimes the travel is the adventure itself, not reaching the goal. It reminded me of how lucky I am, doing what I am doing now, meeting wonderful enthousiastic people all the time and how fortunate I am to be on this journey. For all you spinners, weavers, fibre fans and bunny lovers out there: just think that everytime you are playing with fibre, creating that magical project or cuddling a baby bunny, you already hold that pot of gold!
