Thanks Friends!

It's been an eventful week, chock full of good friends and fiber adventures, and I've experienced so many generous moments, thanks everyone! I brought my Mum along with me to my Spinners Flock meeting, we both really enjoyed it. She was thrilled to cuddle a darling little jacob lamb named Bella. My Mum is always happiest when cuddling babies...this little one is no exception. You can just tell she's smitten! Me too, such a little cutie! Thanks Bella!

After the meeting, my friend Jan gifted me with generous heaps of fiber, including this mohair roving from her own goats. As you can see, I've been at the dye pots this week, I could not resist dying up some of the white mohair in my Big Blue Sky color Palette. Boy, I can hardly wait to get spinning! Thanks Jan!

I did not realize until Sunday morning, that I had received another bunch of fibery wonderfulness in the mail on Saturday. After we got home from our big trip to Spinners Flock (2.5 hour trip ,one way) Mum and I settled in
for the evening, and I completely forgot to check the mail. I was thrilled on Sunday when I found this absolutely delicious, chubby parcel, chuck full of bling! My new friend Moe had gifted me with the remainder of her Pizzazz stash from when she had a shop! Oh Boy, the picture doesn't come close to doing it justice!!! Thanks Moe!

To top it all off, I went to visit my fiber buddy Tamara yesterday, and on the way out she produced these lovely strands of tiny pearl beads for me, I was even more excited when I got home and saw that they were PINK!!! (In the dim afternoon light, I thought they were champagne colored.) Thanks Tamara! (And also thank you for rescuing me and my car Trinket when we couldn't get up the hill, that's what friends are for, to give you that extra little umph, when you can't make it on your own!)

I am surrounded by wonderful friends who are generous in every way, especially generous of spirit, and that, I think you will agree, is the best kind of generosity!

Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings Friends!


  1. ooooh, I love the blues that you dyed the Mohair. GORGEOUS! I'm envious that you made the trip to Spinner's Flock. Every time I say I'm going to go but the drive is so long.

    I love the pearls and the glitz. I can't wait to see how you incorporate them into your beautiful creations.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  2. Wow that mohair dyed up beautiful.
    Mum looks so delighted it was a perfect day to bring her along.
    I am hesitant to dye around here with my herd of cats.
    So many goodies to work with.
    Have lots of fun.

  3. I thought they were champagne colored too! Even better they are pink. They go with your palette. Nice photo of your mom.
    And more bling...Whatever are we going to do with you?? :) Tamara

  4. That's a sweet photo of your Mum with the Jacob lamb.

    The Jacob sheep are probably my favorite sheep. I just love the way they look and the fiber is lovely.
