|”Hang in there” - Bladerunner inspired acrylic painting on canvas by me|
Every year it seems to be super hectic and such a high intensity of blending and dyeing I compare it to climbing Mt Everest. This time I am doing it without oxygen it seems because I am slowly but surely getting more and more exhausted. I have not fainted and fallen on my face yet like a couple of years ago so I guess that is a positive thing, but today for the first time in ages, everything hurt and I felt sick as. So no dyeing for me today. Paul tied me to the bed instead…no, not in that 50 shades of whatever kind of way but bed REST. So yeah, not a happy bunny at the moment. I am sure it is some kind of winter bug with the excessive rain and winter cold is taking hold of me. Not to worry, nothing a bit of rest and a good cup o tea with honey can’t fix. Tomorrow is another day filled with the last preps for the Bendigo Show, that is only 2 weeks away ! How time flies !!!
Today is also the last day that you can sign up for the next clubs starting up in July ! So if you want to receive a surprise batt or tops or yarn, or hey, why not all three, message me or email me tonight!
Today I offer you a lot of bling and sparkles to brighten up your weekend : GaGa bunny tops ! This particular blend I have done with Glitz or as it is also known: trilobal nylon. This particular fibre is manmade and adds not only strength to your natural fibres in this case blue Faced Leicester sheep, making it an excellent choice for socks for example, but because it is “tri” lobal , meaning, on a microscopic level, it has three (tri) sides to the fibre, making it reflect the light much better abnd making it sparkle. I don’t know about you but I love a bit of bling in my blends. It’s almost like an instant happy smile.
Tonight is also the last night to add and vote for your favourite “Thinking outside of the Box” competition I am sponsoring on the Facebook Group “Australian Handspinners and Knitters” so head over there to cast your vote for what you think is some wearable fibre art that is inspiring !
