Funtastic Fridays

Happy First Friday of the month! Or should we just call it “ Funtastic Friday” Shall we? LOL !

If anything, I can honestly say now that not even a Pandemic can keep me down. It at times has certainly slown me down a little , but overall , I can’t complain ! I have been blending, dying, spinning and trying new fluffy blend recipes since 2020 started.

Truth be told, this month is going to do my head in, because the Bendigo sheep and Wool show is not going to be happening and I will just be doing my own thing as usual ! I have always been doing my own thing in my own way. Some people and some of my customers have unfortunately jumped to the conclusion that I would be part of an online event to take place at the same time the Bendigo Show would take place in normal times. This has obviously confused some to believe it was endorsed by or the same as the Bendigo show and I would be there with my bunny ears on. This is not the case. I will however keep doing what I have been vigorously doing for a long, long time on my blog and, yes, there are also some extremely exciting things happening on other fronts too! Very , very Exciting !!!!!! But more on that later! Please keep an eye on my blog, facebook and Instagram ! It will be worthwhile !

There are a few exciting things that have always been happening at the Bendigo show in the Flowershed where I had my stall, was that I asked everybody to come visit, wearing bunny ears!!! This has always been a fun and extremely happy happening !
It was always so much fun seeing lots of people walking around the show grounds and into the shed! I am so going to miss that ! So, why not keep going??!!!
I am inviting you to share a photo on Instagram or facebook of you and your friends or family , wearing bunny ears ! Be creative ! Share the bunny ears photo, tag me by using #ixchelbunnyears2020 and you will get a chance to be a winner of some pretty awesome fibre and/or yarn, a voucher and be crowned “Super Bunny” 😊 Have some fun ! Share your fibre and yarn adventures and be a Super Bunny !!!

Don’t forget to share and tag #ixchelbunnyears2020 !!! The winners will be announced on Friday 31st of July !

So, what’s on in July??? Well, last month it was all about rare sheep breeds and this month it’s all about luxury and super yummy fibres and yarns ! For this week I have blended 5 sensual fibres together in a truly amazing blend : Nr5 Luxury. Nr 5 because it has 5 awesome fibres in it: Yak, Rose Fibres, Silk, Cashmere and Tencel. It has a shine and drape that is out of this world, spins like a dream! Do not wait too long to pounce on this week’s update to avoid disappointment. These tops are an amazing spinning experience.
