For tonights update I am offering you a new blend called Gothic Bunny which is a truly fluffy and silky fibery blend that is amazing to spin and wear. Super soft and wicked !
because I do not want to leave out any yarn fans I have a special offer on that is too good to refuse. But more on that later in this blog !
The Bendigo Show is only less than two months away ! That means lots of dyeing, preparing pigments and fibre blending and spinning up a storm to replenish the handspun angora and angora wallaby yarns that were a super hit at the handknitters guild. I Also have my hands full at the moment trying to blend some pretty special fibres together for amazing new tops that will have their first “outing” at the Bendigo show! Not only are they extremely rare and special but also very soft. I need to take extra special care with the blending and the prep and dyeing! All good things take time. So although I wanted to sit down with a good book and a glass of wine and do nothing for a bit, I had to tell myself that I can relax for a teeny tiny bit after the Bendigo Show…..or…..maybe not. LOL
Sometimes it is very hard to stay focused and work, but at the same time I can tell you that I could not see myself doing anything else. I guess it is like everything else: if you are not passionate about something there is no way in the world you can keep a craft business going. Even more so because doing craft takes a lot of time. There is not an easy fast way of dyeing, or spinning or knitting. And that is a good thing! If it were easy and fast it would not contain the magic it holds now. Come to think of it, the world may tell you that some job is easy and superfast, but most of the time they are lying through their teeth. Unless ofcourse you start out being a millionaire where money makes money, there is no easy way of doing anything in life. So, while we are here, why don’t we do what we LOVE to do as best as we can ! Easier said than done ofcourse, because as we all know, one cannot survive on love alone. If crafters and artists could survive on love and passion, we would be the richest people on earth. And hey, come to think of it, maybe we are !!! It is just a bit hard to pay the rent and some bills.. I guess it comes down to the fact what your heart tells you it wants. It can be heartbreaking to do a job you don’t really like or one that doesn’t really give you the potential to shine and be you, but whatever happens: do what you love and love what you do ! Doing what you love and being able to survive and pay your bills is a totally different kettle of yarn..eh...fish. It becomes harder. Still lots of fun but you have to put another hat on every now and again and say to yourself: I really would love to knit myself a sweater with this, but I don;t pay me for me to knit a sweater for me, so....it can become a bit like the cobblers family fairytale if you know what I mean. In the end, what is most important in life, whatever you fill it with: HAVE FUN and say to yourself every minute of every day: ANYTHING GOES!
