It's all happening!

You know how they say that there is no rest for the wicked?  Well all I can say is that I must have had a very 'wicked' previous life - :)  Am I complaining, not at all, as my busy lifestyle is all fibre related and I am loving it!!

It all started a couple of weeks ago when I took my Mum for a drive to Healesville to see some wonderful sheep and Mohair goats owned by Annette!  Boy are these animals looked after!  They all sleep undercover at night and never get stressed. It shows however, in the wonderful fleece that they produce and how soft and sound it is.  Needless to say Mum and I traveled home with a few fleeces in our boot and back seat. I drew the line at Mum's lap, even though she would have been willing, bless her!  I was rewarded with a lovely lunch at the RACV club where we 'played ladies' and then a lovely drive home with the smell of fleece wafting through the car!

The start of the school holidays saw me put my yarns on sale at the indoor market at Apollo Bay and this coincided with the Music Festival held there also.  The weather was challenging to say the least, but it didn't put off the dedicated music lover.  The Market went for two weeks and included the Easter holidays and Anzac day holidays.  Local artists displayed their work and visitors enquiries, questions and purchases were enthusiastically catered for by Beth who had organised the whole event.  It was a fantastic opportunity for me and I was very happy with my sales.

In between all this I helped out the Guild at a North Carlton Community Market which was raising money for the Japanese disaster.  It was a lovely day and the organisers did a wonderful job at providing so much entertainment for the public.  Dorothy and I were very lucky to be serenaded by two wonderful Japanese entertainers!  Who could have asked for more, sun, spinning and music!

Time for a rest........no way it's time to get out those fleeces I bought in Healesville and to spin some more yarn!

  1. Lucky animals. Mine don't like being yarded up, I think they be frighted if I put them in a shed.
    Happy spinning.
