When Doves Cry...

Prince by Sean Gregory Miller
(inspired by Le Petit Prince by Sain Exupery)

2016, it certainly is starting to look like the script for this year is written by George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) : brilliant actors and musicians and all round good people are being taken away left right and centre.
I grew up hearing the songs of Prince and his “purple Rain” helped me get through some pretty horrible times. It was so much fun playing his songs too with the bands I was in, singing at the top of my lungs and playing those awesome riffs on keyboard and guitar. What a brilliant mix of funk and pop and blues and so, so  much soul. So, thank you Prince ! Your brilliant music will always live on !

Last Monday I had an amazing time at the Bushland spin in at the Grandvalley spinners. The weather was super good and sunny and the company was even better ! So thank you from the bottom of my heart Grandvalley Spinners Group for organising such a fabulous event every two years !
 It was great seeing so many friends again! It was so much fun and what makes it even better is that everybody was so enthusiastic about all the fibre there was on offer.

One of my friends who came and visited my stall (Andrea, I won’t name any names eh? Lol) told me she had a nightmare the night before that

A. I was not going to be there ! oh horror!
 B. I had no cashmere flings with me at all !! double horror ! LOL

 As it so happened , I had a great choice of fibres and blends (yes Cashmere flings were there too !)  and yarns for everybody and we all had a ball !! Thank you so much for having me and Paul there with his fantastic spindles and handturned bowls.

I have heard from a lot of people that this week has been  a bit of a bummer and they need some cheering up , so what better to offer you than some Flings?? Cashmere flings to be precise !

This blend of cashmere and lots of silky smooth fibres makes these tops spin like butter and is just about the best thing since sliced bread somebody has told me , so there ya go

Here’s hoping that the rest of the month ( and the year) is a lot less stressful and is kind to everybody!
Have a fun weekend and snaffle ! All the “ how to order details” are shown at the bottom of this blog. You can always contact me on facebook or ravelry and even if you do not see something here , ask me: I am always happy to enable !
