Don't Blink

I cannot believe that it will only be about 6 weeks before the BIG Bendigo Show is here ! It seemed like I blinked! And ….half a year just disappeared ! …..frantically she looks around if there are any Dr Who Weeping Angels hiding somewhere ….. Good news is : all the fibre preparations are almost done and also some of the dyeing, but there are literally tens of kilos still to be acquainted with the dyepots and to get dry. I am counting myself very lucky I got heaps of spinning done with the help of my Schacht Sidekick super duper wheel which makes spinning lace and 3 ply yarns so easy, my majacraft Rose for the bulky bunny heads and coils and not to forget the tailspun kid mohair and then my Ashford electric for the 4 and 8 ply production spinning. Every wheel has its own task really, not because one cannot possibly do everything, but they have their favourite yarns to spin I guess. I have to admit I blinked once last night when I went out for once and met up with Paul at Taco Bills for an evening in Mexican Style. However luch I love cooking, I have to admit it is extremely awesome not to have to cook or do dishes for once ! For the occasion I wore my Hell Bunny Mexican Rose dress and oh boy did that get attention. Never in my life have I been stopped by so many women saying öh my god, where did you get that dress!” or “I love Hell bunny, Im a big fan! I want that dress!” So I ofcourse mentioned where I got them from: my two favourite Hell bunny suppliers here in Australia: Atomic Cherry and Tragically Beautiful, both from Queensland and available on line with absolute awesome customer service. So, if you want some hell bunny or manic panic, please go to them ! Anyway, I am already extremely late with this update so I better get the ball rolling and get this show on the road ! Here are this weeks offerings !

Have fun looking at what I have been dyeing up this week !

I think you have just mentioned my most favourite of all time episodes of Dr. Who. Even watched multiple times it still sends a shiver up the spine.

So it one Blink or two until Bendi?
