WOW what a mail day!!

WOW! I got all kinds of goodies in the mail today!
I ordered some blended glitz from legacystudios on ebay and that arrived today in the form of Fire and Tropical glitz...OOOoo droool!

Then I won a price from the Needle Felting forums online and I got that today. A Beary Best Friend needle felting kit from www.bluegooseglen.com. I cannot wait to tear into that one! LMAO!

Then I got some special poly envies today so that I have something light and cheap to send orders in through my etsy shop. Sold some Shetland batts but the mohair is not moving. *scratching forhead* I thought mohair was a popular fiber item? Oh well. Win some loose some and I definately lost on the mohair after finding out I am allergic to it-the hard way.

I have 11 pounds of lucious llama fleece on the way to me from Northern Wisconsin. A fiber dealer up Nort was selling a bunch on ebay and I got one lot of 5 1/2 pounds of light brown llama fleece for $3 (without shipping)!! Holy smokes! I went on a fleece binge. I bought two more smaller lots and ended up spending $32 for the 11 pounds with the shipping. What a steal!!! Shipping to within the same state is pretty damned reasonable and a lot cheaper than going to pick it up with gas being so high. Who would have thunk that I would prefer it to be shipped rather than just pickin it up? Totally backwards.

Today I won an auction for 2 pounds of Targee fleece (skirted) and that seller is even closer to me than the first!! And as we chatted back and forth through email after I had asked a question about the auction, found out that she also has lots more different fleeces for $5 a pound. SO I tacked on 2 pound of skirted Merino. OOOh I am so bad. Awayith Da'Bill!!! I am being bad!!!

So since I have all my goodies for making the third part of the carding tutorial, I am working away at that.

Saterday I got a postcard in the mail from Karate America with encouraging words.

"Your hard work and determination is paying off! Great job in class and keep pushing your team-mates to match your black belt attitude! -Mr. Shaub"
That came a great time. I was beginning to loose some steam but this really helps! That place is the greatest and is very worthy of every cent I pay them for my training.

Until next time...


  1. Jennifer again!

    I was eyeing the mohair, but I'm new to spinning so I wanted to ask if it would be pretty easy to spin on a drop spindle? I was fondling some at my local fiber shop but all they had was this icky shade of purple/gray.

    Let me know, I'll happily buy some!

  2. It's a slippery fiber alone and needs a park and draft method on the spindle. That is probably why no one wants it! LMAO! But when it is combined with another fiber, it adds sheen.


Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
