Little brown bear ....

My little brown bear block found a new home. Shirley from PEI liked it so much, that she asked me, if I would trade it. I was really happy that she liked it so much, and was glad to send it to her, because the block would have disappeared in my closet for who knows many more years?


... today I found this package in my mail box! I didn't really want anything for the block, but Shirley send me fiber samples! Cashmere! Mohair! Silk hankies! and Kid Mohair locks!!! Wow!
I've spun mohair/wool blend before, but all the others I haven't even touched so far, only read about it, seen it on other blogs. Cashmere is sooooo very soft, but right now, my fingers are too rough, because of the gardening. I have to look at these treasures for a while, enjoy them in their lovely little bags. Thank you, Shirley! You made me very happy!


You all know how much I love my little bloggy here. But sometimes life has a way to bring things into perspective. If you don't hear as much from me as in the past, forgive me. I hope I'll be back in full force soon. I haven't done much fibering through the last weeks, I also hope this will turn around soon.

Stay cool!

Looks like a win/win situation to me. The bear has a new home and you have some new fiber to play with.

I hope all is well with you . I enjoy reading and seeing what you're up to knitting and spinning wise , but sometimes a break is in order . I can only manage to blog once or twice a week myself and with Ravelry , computer time takes away from knitting time .

Take care and I'll catch you when you get back !

Good trade. That bear was really cute. I hope things look up for you and the blog. I know I've been ignoring emails lately and feeling like I want to leave the laptop off in general. Connecting back to real life. :-) We'll see you back soon I hope!

I'm so glad your bear found a nice home! He deserved better than being stuck in a closet :)

I hope everything is alright....

Wishing you the best.

Lauter schön Schätzchen....
Ich bin schon auf deine Hankies gespannt!

Wenn ich so recht überlege, gibt es noch unzählige Faserarten, die ich zu gerne probespinnen möchte.
Nach Weihnachten darf ich mir erst wieder Wolle bestellen. Zuerst müssen alle Geschenke angefertigt und die Vorräte aufgebraucht werden.

Pass auf Dich auf und lass' es Dir gutgehen.

Liebe Grüße, Juli
