Carrots everywhere !

It’s getting closer and closer ! It’s exciting and scary!! (for me anyway) at the same time…what is it? ………The Handknitters Guild Show next week Saturday, May 11th, (the day before mothersday..hint hint!) and Bendigo Show , in TWO months TWO weeks and TWO days !!!!!!!!

Still so much to do for both shows but I can tell you this much: there are heaps of new products planned for the Bendigo Show and yes, there are going to be Bunny Art Yarns at the hand knitters guild and heaps of lace, 3 ply, sock yarns and ofcourse tops for spinning and felting..not to mention Funky Bunny Batts ! The up side of being creative is that there are aways new projects and ideas popping up in my brain..the down side of it to make it work in  a given time frame a..more to organise it all !

I have a week of utter chaos to deal with first and then I am determined to make my studio a better working space. To get that going I got myself two 2meter long tables..unfortunately I have to empty the studio out first to be able to declutter and make the studio a better space, instead of the creative jumble it is now.
Paul is so much better doing that than me..leave me in a room to work with fibre and in no time it is filled to the brim with all kinds of pretties but no system….well, no system that is logical to anybody else than my brain that is.

I do need to organise a bit better though because of new projects I will be working on, on a new medium and as you know, every new medium, whether it be spinning or weaving, needs its own space and way of organising. I will get there…slowly but surely and no, Im not telling you what it is yet, you will just have to wait two months, two weeks and two days to check it out at the Bendigo Show in the Flower Power Bunny Shed there !

So, what have I got in store for you this weekend? Well, it is a blend that I have already offered before but with a twist…instead of blending the shiny bits throughout the top I have bended it less, and it now glistens like a river in a beautiful landscape. Take a good close look at the photos and you will see what I mean. These Magic Bunny Tops are 17micron merino, cashmere, angora bunny and a bit of rainbow dyed glitz !!!! It is wonderful to spin or felt or embellish with! Have fun browsing, and snaffling!

Enjoy this new Magic bunny blend and know that there is only a very limited supply!
