Ever felt like Mork/Robin Williams? I mean :the words just keep coming out of your mouth, people around you either look stupefied of are laughing their head off. Is it a good sign? You have to admit, well I do, I adore Robin Williams. Just something about him. No, it’s not JUST his furriness ( you must know by now that I love all things furry.immediately thinking "hmm I coud spin that"....lol) it’s the speed of thought, wit, rapture of words and timeless-mess.
Sometimes Life can be terrifying, or, to quote Mork:”If my knees knock any louder, I'm gonna look inside my pants and see who's there”. This month is going to be a tough one. Why you say? Well, call me a silly Mork, but it is that time again for a cancer check up. Isn’t it absolutely stupid that just after the last check up and the “all clear “ for three months,you can breathe a bit easier, forget about any ..eh..issues..but before you know it , the poking and prodding sessions are there again and the wait for results. I know I should not worry a bit, but then again, why bother about going to be poked and prodded in the first place? I have to admit, I had some stupid retail therapy..and..it did not help…, meaning, I bought something I absolutely was gaga about, was on special (from $120!!! To $39!!!, now who could resist that!lol) and to be honest; I can only wear it while sitting down or possibly lying in bed. I have bought the most amazing 5” high heeled RED super shiny shoes. They were on special, they fitted and looked stunning and ..well…I cannot possible walk in them. Lol.. I am sure you have had this experience???? Please tell me yes…lol…I think it’ s the nerves that did it. I just had to do something silly and I think I succeeded; My Robin Williams retail therapy.
So, I got home, put the 5” heeled shoes in a “prominent” position underneath the bed and did something much more satisfying and meaningful: I spun some yarn. Well, it is not all finished yet , but it is truly magical, inspiring and can be used. Much more than those super high heeled red shoes. Who needs retail therapy? Here’s to spinning a YARN! NaNu NaNu!
I have been very busy this week with getting all the clubs dyed and posted out tto all the members, so there isn’t quite as much fibre and yarn as I would have liked to offer you, but then, there’s always next week, where I am planning to offer you Lord of the Rings Art Yarn!!! (look out for those ones because they are super special ! I think this yarn will even be loved by unsuspecting 13year old gamers who never even looked at a yarn once..lol) also some very special hand dyed and blended angorino and silk tops!!!! MAGIC ! but I am jumping the gun here..lol
This week there are some awesome soft MINK yarns available again and some baby camel yarns as well ! and then there is BLING! What better way to start the weekend with some bling! Here it all is , email me on Ixchelbunny@yahoo.com.au if you want to adopt any of these babies or message me on Ravelry or facebook where I am Ixchelbunny !

Contact me on Ravelry where I am Ixchelbunny, message me on facebook there or email me on Ixchelbunny@yahoo.com.au (I am still experiencing some problems with my regular email provider Rabbit . The company Rabbit has sadly been taken over by another company. I will miss the Rabbit team and Rodney dearly. I think they were the only telecommunication company where you could talk to a PERSON almost immediately and even when you had to wait a bit you could choose your music: regular or celtic..lol. Their sense of humor and great service will be missed! )
Thanks heaps for your support !
