Energizer Bunny

Part of Bendigo show IxcHeL Stall (yes…part of !!!! there’s more !)

Bendigo show 2016 was AMAZING!!!! it only took about a 6 hour set up......and a year of

I could not possibly think of more superlatives to describe it but it was out of this world! Not only did I get to meet all my fibre friends (or friends in firbre) but I was very privileged to do a talk about being a bunny carer and bunny hairdresser and most of all someone that survived because of fibre and craft.
This is something that does not get a lot of airtime normally because let’s face it, most people survive on medicine, drugs (the good and other stuff. I, on the other hand, I can honestly say, that when all logic eluded me and life was just too hard, fibre saved me and my bunnies ofcourse ! So yes, it was scary (let me repeat that SCARY to be in front of heaps of people in a fancy lunch setting, being me (meaning wearing buny ears and wearing my hell bunny dress outfit with my handknitted super fluffy bunny cardi, talking about… life…lol it wouldn’t have been half as scary if I had more time (10 minutes is hardly enough to talk about my and if I had notes. However, being the chaos charmer I am,, notes would have been lost on me so I made it up a I went along..until they gave me the sign that my time was up and I was about to be carried off the stage by a huge merino sheep with a whip….lol Then back to the stall (I am still very sad I missed the desert which was a chocolate something not to be missed

So here I am , back at the farm and it is life as usual : bunny care, farm work and trying to keep everything going and preparing clubs and updates. No rest for the wicked. I have to admit I had 1 PJ day: Monday! Paul told me to take it easy and did not let me do anything (the sweetheart)…
