Keep Swimming..again




December sure started with a BANG ! storms, lots and lots of rain and a few things that gave ne the heeby jeebies (no comment…lol) but at the same time there were heaps of good things like marriage equality (finally), the #metoo women(and men) were elected “person of the year” (thankfully surpassing the Donald for all the best reasons like the power of women to  not only speak out about sexual harassment but it FINALLY being acted on...although there is a long road ahead yet but it's a start) and lots of new blends are in the pipeline for the new year having passed my trial blend trials.

 Also the December clubs have all been dyed and are ready to be shipped out on Monday ! a few days later than I hoped but the super wet weather here has not been great for drying woolly stuff LOL

I am slowly but surely running out of steam though. This year has proven to be a very very tough year both for me personally, mentally and on the business side of things. I will keep swimming though! There is no giving up. BUT..yes there is a but..I need some time tot clean my studio and my head… make some changes and take some new paths towards new adventures. I know if I do not do this, the swimming part will go alright and I will keep going like an energizer bunny, but my mental state will suffer and that will just not do.

So a very hard decision has been made that next weeks update will be the last of the product updates of the year with some extra special offer no to be missed !!! and then I will have a break from the unrelenting pace I have put myself under for the last 12 years. I will not go travelling (hahahahaha! I had to get back up on my chair for that one…lol) but for those last two weeks of the year I will TRY to slow my pace and take some much needed time to invest in my sanity and my family.

So without letting you wait longer than necessary for this weeks scrumptiousness: here it is< for the last 10 years IO have tried to be a promotor of rare breeds from all over the world. Not only offering new types of fleeces and breeds for you to spin but at the same time also investing it back and helping the farmers who breed these beauties. By doing that, when you buy these blends you are ensuring that the farmer will be able to do his or her work and ensure the animals’ future. For this weeks update I offer you the very special Viva Frida blend with Navajo Churro blended with some supersoft angora bunny and cashmere together with agave cactus to make it extra special. It is great to spin and soft to handle with an amazing drape.




Also, for tonights’ update I am offering some Christmas vouchers again for those who have no idea what to buy for their yarn and fibre loving other halves, friends or family. They are a great way of putting something special under the Christmas tree (or fern ..lol) with some extra surprises from me personally, because I think the act of giving should always be rewarded with a bit extra .


Here are all the offerings for tonight and please do not forget : the sign ups are open for the fibre, yarn and batt club starting in January 2018!



Please don't hesitate to contact me at any time if you have any questions okay? Always happy to enable. All my contact details are to be found at the end of this week’s blog entry.
