It is also exceedingly hard to get things dry in this kind of wet weather and drying spaces are at a premium at the moment. I was extremely happy that the sun was out all day, although a watery one, but at least I could dry stuff outside for a while ! Phew ! So much easier!!
That doesn’t mean there isn’t wool and yarn spread out all over the house ! Which also means that if I do faint again, I will have a soft landing. Not that I am planning to anytime soon.
I still have about 8 different blends to dye and my pre felts and the paj silks for my felt kits, but , like all of you told me, I have to take it “a bit” easier. My head is still filled with , what feels like a fizzy water bottle and if I move too fast , the effect is like I had a bottle of whisky..wooozy without the hangover so to say., in short…I have no other choice at the moment than to take it very easy. I did get the new Diana Gabaldon Book “written in my own hearts blood” in the mail the other day and since I am an “outlander – fan” and can’t wait what happens to Claire and Jamie next, I am looking forward to some reading in my “spare time”…;-)
I know I am going to disappoint lots of people by saying this, but…you know the funky sheep breed I was planning for this weeks update? Well, I had to postpone that batch for a bit.Not to worry, I will put them on display on next weeks update for sure! I just had to do heaps of work to get all the clubs ready to be sent out on Monday and I just could not get the funky gorgeous sheep tops ready in time.. ..slap me…lol Here are some photos though to give you an idea of things to come and you can always have a guess what is going to be feature breed on next weeks update !
A batch of natural grey of this gorgeous rare sheep breed are on their way to our farm as we speak! This means that I will hopefully be able to offer you more of this amazing fibre soon and will definitely have some at the Bendigo show as well !!!: Hand dyed and natural.
Lots of people have asked me if I could send them the raw fleece, but unfortunately I cannot. It is impossible to get raw fleece into Australia due to quarantine measures and even with washed fleece it is very very hard and a luck of the draw as they say. Since I do not want quarantine to tell me they have to destroy the wool or irradiate it at ultra high cost, I get the fleeces washed , scoured and combed before they get shipped over here.
I can however, supply you with clean and natural Gra Troendersheep tops as well as my hand dyed ones soon ! yeah !
For this week there is obviously no fibre or yarn update as such, but there are ofcourse the club sign ups that are still open until july the 8th if you would like to make sure you get a fluffy magical parcel in your letterbox each month !
IxCHeL Club sign ups starting in July 2014 are Open !!
For all our international club fans there is a possibility to ship all three clubs together to save on postage if you want :-) Just pm me to enquire about the options.
