There are a lot of Kookaburra birds around here.
You can hear their laughing calls all the time: it always makes me smile.
The kitchen is starting to take shape and I think it is coming pretty close to the image we had in our minds when we drew it up in our minds. Which is lucky, because sometimes you think things up and the reality just doesn’t do it justice..slowly but surely we are getting there and I am especially proud of the handmade sink Paul and his mate Travis made. It’s a one of a kind totally awesome industrial piece of art. Thanks guys!
Apart from kitchen reno stuff there has been a lot of spinning and dyeing going on as well. Lots of fun spinning butter and caramel with chocolate yarns, art yarns and fine yarns as well. It is really amazing how spinning can help you keep sane in times of stress by the way. That little machine is awesome. Talking about an awesome little machine: I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful new wheel from the amazing FIBERIFIC! Chantelle Hills called the Hitchhiker from the Merlin Tree. Go to www.fiberific.blogspot.com for more info. It spins like a dream and is just such a cute funky wheel. I am spinning some pure angora on it at the moment but after that project I am so going to paint bunnies and carrots on it: my own little funky bunny wheel for sure ! By the way, apart from its natural awesomeness the Hitchhiker also uses Ashford bobbins ! Great! You can never have enough bobbins floating around that can actually be used on different wheels I say!
Apart from all the above mentioned excitement I can offer you some very new funky fibres and yarns !
