I still had to finish some urgent custom orders though and that’s when you realise, the universe has not really thought the whole working, multitasking phenomena through. If it had, we would walk around with at least 4 pairs of hands, two heads and a couple of extra legs to kick ourselves every now and again , and, no ears at all , so we would not hear the deadlines WOOSHINGS past.
Unfortunately, evolution has not been very accommodating and has yet to offer us the on line shopping convenience for extra pairs of anything.. Oh well…maybe I will just have to be comforted by the sound deadlines make when they start whooshing past.
It is this time of year that I also seem to develop an extra need for the ultimately illogical, funny and totally out of left field..you know, just to counterbalance the ultimate organisational juggling that is needed to get the Bendigo show on the road.
I smile a lot (most of it illogically while listening to tonnes of strange illogical books), run around like a headless chook, stand long hours in front of dye pots and mixing pigments, listen to loud music alternated with the total madness of literary quantum physiscs while at the same time forget what time it is: Bed time, Dinner time and all other sorts of time that most people take for granted and have fought over with the establishment go straight out the window in my small nook of Pre-Bendigo Madness reality.
It is not anything I would label as sanity and before I will go all goobledy gook at you, I will confess that I could only ever tell anybody to do this, when they have been thoroughly and totally infected by the fibre and yarnoholic bug. If not, take a step back into the real world. Me on the other hand , have always loved the craziness of deadlines, the improbability of goals I set myself, and have always coupled it with a passionate disregard for any logical (and monetary enriching) employment.
It is in a way strange that I have never really fared well mentally coping with authority, but on the other hand I have found that I have never really had such an enormously whip lashing, satanically flogging boss than myself….lol
Anyway, All the custom orders are almost all done, ranging from lace spinning yarn to slubby yarn and organically spun pure bunny art yarn and dyeing felt and silk. Now it is time to get everything done for the Bendigo show.
I have over 300 kilo’s lined up and prepped to dye in the next month! Not only new IxCHeL blends (like the superhero and happy tiger and the super new QIVIUT blend Tundra) but also paj silk felt kits, our dyed angorino felt scarf and wraps and how can I forget, the funky bunny bats and wooshy clouds! So , we have come full circle now: it’s back to the deadlines whooshing past..lol
This week, I am offering you some exciting happy tiger tops that are an absolute wonder to spin and can cater for making the most amazing art uarns but also fine yarns, depending on whether you spin it straight ofrom the top or , for the lace option, predraft and open up the hemp fibres. Anything goes and because there are so many different types of fibres in the happy tiger top package, it will create that heavenly yarn you always wanted to in so nmany different ways !
