I thought after last weeks celebration a Fiesta might help to get rid of the flu…well, I’m definitely not flu-less yet, but I’m getting better. So all in all I guess that is a good thing. So, in my book, a fiesta or party is the best medicine for lots of things. What is this Fiesta she is talking about? Well, its not actually a party in the normal human kind of way, but nevertheless a party in my fiberholic mind. What happens when you put a lot of wonderfully dyed rovings together and blend it just a tiny bit to get a top? Yep, that’s right, you get a colourful fibre party, A Fiesta. The colours I dreamt of are Mexican colours, bright crimson reds, oranges, blues, greens, pinks, purples and all bound together with a rainbow of bling ! Now, if that doesn’t make you happy, nothing will..lol
The Fiesta tops on offer this week are angorino with a dash of glitz and you can spin (or felt ) them any way you like it ! You can choose to start spinning and let the fiesta top take you where no spinner has gone before! OR, you can experiment and predraft each individual colour separately and then ply them together on their own or with a contrast plying thread. Anything goes ! The results will be spectacular and unique !!!
Also, my fresh new harvest of Buddhas tears tea is available again, Buddhas tears tea is a hand rolled wonderful green tea that holds a beautiful jasmine tea pearl inside). This special Buddhas tears tea is all packaged up very nicely so it is a perfect gift idea as well ! I made a new label and packaged it all up in a very nice green organza bag : a perfect gift for yourself or for somebody else !
Ofcourse I have been dyeing and spinning up a storm in preparation for the Bendigo show and also trying to get all my custom orders done in time…oh how I wish I had about 48 hours in a day and didn’t need any sleep…I calculated that I would need to dye at least 10 kilos a day and spin heaps as well to get everything I want ready for the Bendigo show. That ofcourse doesn’t take into account the special projects I also need to do and the making of the badges and braiding and labelling…hahahahahaha….(yes I am hopeful….).
I will leave you to snaffle to your hearts content ! Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or requests : alays happy to enable.Please know that I still do custom spinning and dyeing but all the custom orders can only be finished after the Bendigo show.
