Has it really been a week?

....since the Clermont Sheep and Wool festival?!

This week has been insane!

Before I say another word - I want thank everyone who found me on Etsy. This past week has been more then I could ever have imagined! You people are amazing - way to make a girl feel loved!

Without subjecting any of you to a play by play of every email, Etsy sale, conversation or Ravelry post - considering every member in my family has already been through that - it is safe to say that this was perhaps one of the most exciting weeks ever!

So, what have I been up to?

That is the guest bathroom - wall to wall wool. Sixteen pounds to be exact - the last four are waiting to be rinsed. I promised - LOTS of pictures to follow. It's time for me to stop with all my chatter and add some color to these blog posts!


Not yet. Starting Tuesday, I will be away for two weeks.

As I do not want anyone to wait for their order or wonder why I am not answering an EtsyConvo; the shop will go into Vacation mode Monday May 4th and reopen Friday May 15th.

Thank You.

um. WOW.

I wish to Thank everyone who wandered into my 'lil corner of the world at the Clermont Sheep and Wool festival. Your comments, complements, words of wisdom, squeals of delight, and yes; purchases, reminded me how incredible the fiber community is. Thank you.

Humble appreciate aside - Saturday was A W E S O M E .

[11:00am Saturday morning]

I could probably type for hours and not come close to describing how fabulous the day was or how incredible the people were. And I think that was is what it is all about - the people. Yes, I made sales, and appreciate them more then I can even begin to express, but, I got to meet so many like minded, creative, interesting, wonderful people. I look forward to seeing many of you again!

[4:30pm Saturday evening]

Before I head over to Etsy to open my shop doors, I one again thank everyone for their support and give a special thank you to the love of my life, James; a man who even on two hours of sleep managed to unpack the Jeep, assemble the display crates and calm my nerves all in the same hour. Thank you.

just in: business cards!

Only 5 more days until the Clermont Sheep & Wool festival!!

Things have been hectic around here to say the least! Figured I should stop in and let you that things are going really well. I still have pounds of fiber to send through the drumcarder, plus a couple pounds of beautiful Border Leicester locks to dye up. But I will share those tidbits later...

Today, I share my new business cards/sample tags!

My hope is that the card will ultimately act as a spinners sample card and perhaps bring an extra value to a small piece of paper.

2009 Chancellor's Sheep & Wool - Booth 29

See the title? See it?

Not only I am attending the Chancellor's Sheep & Wool festival in Germantown NY - I will be participating as a vendor! Crazy huh?

Originally I had intended to simply attend and see the layout of the property, make lists of things that I would need as a vendor in 2010, take notes on effective booth layout; you know, research and prepare. Well, on Monday I changed my mind. I just felt that I needed to be part of this years event and I knew that if I did not make the commitment - I would regret it.

You may not hear from me for a couple weeks - I have so much to do! Before I get lost in pounds of fiber, here is some information on the event:

Date & Time: Saturday, April 25 11:00am - 4:30pm

m.i.a already?

Yes, but for good reason! I have so much to tell you, but so much still to do. So what does one do in this situation? Share a picture of one of the latest drying racks until I can compose another post. So without further ado:
