|Ready for Winter by Shane Dimmick|
Today there was a planned power outage so not really a good time to be without electricity but there was plenty to do here : braiding and tagging and cutting out labels. The piles of fluff are slowly but surely growing and let me just say at this stage the places where you can actually sit in this house are getting less and less….unless you would like to wool dive of course !
Last night it was about 4am I dropped into bed after a full day of dyeing a new blend with rainbow stellina and blue faced Leicester : see it as a symbiosis of the GaGa Bunny tops AND Magic Bunny tops I have been doing for a loooooong time now with something galactically special.
This is what I do in my ..eh...spare time: try and come up with new blends and fibres and ways to make the “magic” happen.
That also means that when I come up with something new, an older blend needs to go. Sometimes it is a very hard decision: every blend is special to me. So, this time I have decided it is time to go for the Magic Bunny tops.
I still love that blend but I have to make room for new magic blends. I might revisit it again in a few years: never say never I always say ..lol
So for this update I am offering you the LAST of the Magic Bunny Tops I have and will have in stock for a loooong time.
This comes with a special offer price to thank you for the support for all the Magic.
