Life sure is not boring … there are lots of things going on..bunny care, oncology visit last Tuesday which left me walking like a duck –oh joy..don’t worry its apparently under control but that doesn’t mean these visits are not annoying..to say the least- and then ofcourse I am pulling all nighters to get as much done , packed, labelled dyed and spun for Bothwell NEXT WEEK!!! Yes! I will be on the boat to Tasmania next Tuesday and at the Bothwell show from Thursday til Sunday ! There are lots of fun things planned but first I will have to get as much funny bunny stuff ready !
it is exciting and scary at the same time..the excitement is killing me….and I can’t wait to see all the fibre fans in Tasmania ! and ofcourse Tasmania itself ! I have heard so many magical things about it but have never been there, so it is very very exciting indeed ! my car will be loaded to the brim again I reckon, because the stock room is half full and that room is definitely bigger than my Tardis….lucky for me , fibre is squishable…lol
The Bothwell International Highland Spin in will open on Friday the 1st Saturday the 2nd and Sunday the 3rd of march. It is going to be a super special because this is the 35th year reunion event. There are going to be heaps of fun stuff: sheep dog trials, yarn bombing of Bothwell, show and tells, lots of workshops, fashion parades and demonstrations and ofcourse there will be heaps of stallholders offering lots of fibery goodies. I will have my stall there at the schoolgrounds filled to the brim with bunny fluff, tops, silks and ofcourse our very own IxCHeL blends that are super special to work with! Oh and yarns! How can I possibly forget my sock yarns, handspun bunny mink, angora and art yarns ! and BADGES!! new badges! yeah
I will not make this update a big one because I fear I am running out of time ..still have heaps of wooshes and batts to make !
