A Wild Ride

Another wild ride here at the farm: There was lost of dyeing and packing and labelling going on of all the bushfire fundraiser yarn and on Friday all the yarns were shipped! Yeah! The custom orders and special orders will go out on Monday. 
 It was a huge effort and my back and hips are hurting like hell at the moment and telling me off, but it’s straight back to the dye room for me to get the January clubs out of the way ! 

The sock club has already received its colour and is on the drying rack;  it was so good trying to interpret the painting of the artist who is inspiring this month : Diego Rivera.   Here's a teaser photo of the label of the January club:

The batt fibres and the fibre club are going in the dyepots over the next few days. The labels, the artist info sheet and the pattern for the yarn club has already been printed. It’s all go go go ! here !

 I was not planning on doing an update on a sunny Sunday morning by the way, but on my usual Friday the power went out at a crucial time due to trees down and sudden wind bursts, which meant that I had to take photos I dim natural light and get the generator going to get any kind of power to my computer and to get internet, which is wonky at best. So, I made the executive decision to change the time around and set it on Sunday. With the pressure off that Friday night I was so tired I actually fell asleep on the couch in the dark at 8pm ! LOLOL I must have needed the extra rest....

IxCHeL Buddhas tears tea

carefully packed and presented in a special organza gift bag

50g/ AU$19

Two organically grown superior green tea leaves and a jasmine bud are plucked from the best quality tea bushes and mixed with delicately smelling jasmine blossoms, then sieved and hand rolled on bamboo trays, into small balls while the leaves are not quite dry. 

The leaf captures the fine jasmine aroma and releases it during brewing, giving a champagne coloured cup. 

 Brewing: 1-3 minutes 75-80degC , 

 4 pearls/cup, 

you can reinfuse 3-4 times so those 4 pearls last a looong time

Carefully handrolled tea

Enjoy the tea over and over again, by adding hot water again and again
