It is the perfect time to set your spinning wheel up (or knitting) and watch the french countryside woosh by and see guys in lycra work up a sweat….no, not MAMILS (=middle aged men in lycra)..lol and I must say it is around this time of year that I tend to listen to Jazz manouche music (remember Chocolat , the movie? With Johnny Depp?..i know you will..lol..that Django Reinhardt jazzy guitar music is great happy spinning music. YouTube the Rosenberg trio for example or Jazz manouche ) .
There’s is just something romantically comforting about it all , especially since it marks the two and a bit week dash to the Bendigo Show. Everything is frantic here ..getting ready for the biggest show for the IxCHeL fibre farm: the living room is filling up with dyed tops and fibres and yarns, crates and crates of bunny paraphernalia are piling up , new bunny ideas are materialised , labelling, braiding, embroidering, sewing, painting, felting kits, quilting kits, silk fabrics for nuno felting! buttons, not to mention batty batt making in progress ..you name it....it is full FULL on !!
No time for a huge commentary on last weeks happenings Im afraid…I’m slowly but surely running our of production time and the blasted flu attack hasn’t helped one iota..! I think the olive leaf capsules are taking effect though ! Which is a great relief, because the continuous sneezing almost broke a rib..lol
On this weeks blog I am offering you a tiny TINY tidbit of what is to come at the Bendigo show: some new Angel bunny tops (Blue faced Leicester, cashmere, angora and tencel) and bunny buttons !! so cute!!!!
