The Pre Bendigo Tornado

It is Friday, that means IxcHeL update day ofcourse , the start of the weekend and ! the fact that it is SIX days before the Bendigo Show 2015 kicks off !!!!

Some people have told me they wold love to see my home a week before the biggest show of the year. Can I just say…no you don’ is utter and sheer’s a Fibery TORNADO…lol..there is fluff hanging drying everywhere.
I can honestly say there are only 3 places where there is not any fuff: the bathroom, the bedroom and the kitchen… it is madness!
There is still so much to do and this year more than anything I feel like I am so far behind ! I still have so much to do and finish! Like I said : madness..well..a fluffy madness.
The thing is, if you would let me ..I would even add more to my list because I have so many ideas of blends and fibery magic still to do. Nevermind, that is what the rest of the year is for…lol

I am also surprised I am still standing. This last month was like a marathon in more ways than one: working close to 18 hours a day to get things ready is not an understatement. I have not seen the light of really ! Vampire…

I am so looking forward to sharing all the new fiber blends and adventures I have planned for you at the Bendigo show. For those of you who cannot possibly make it because the Star Trek beam me up Scotty machine hasn’t been invented yet I can let you all in on a little secret:

1. I will be heading to Queensland after Bendigo to do workshops at beautiful Mapleton and
2. I have a wonderful amazing AWESOME fibery rare sheep breed adventure in the pipeline that will knock your socks off ( Announcement and sign ins start July 24th on my blog that Friday !!!!)

Now for Bendigo show: it is the 10th year I will be at Bendigo Show and that calls for a celebration ! so..there are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Wear a bunny outfit , bunny ears, a bunny tail, a Bunny onesie ! you will receive a “Thank you for being a Super Bunny Pack to with some very special things in it !”
