Sharing a piece of madness

Hello there,

just thought I should really drop in and mention why I am pretty swamped right now.
Since my last blog post I spent a wonderful but still pretty stressful (my poor feet) weekend in Paris, where I found some great fabric and trimmings and lots of inspiration, pictures might follow later on. Then I have spent the last few days at my organisation's 100 year celebration in Berlin. I was looking after our international VIPs which was a lot of fun but pretty much a full-time job. Today I finally have a day for my own undertakings, ie. the shop. From the look of it I will be spinning a good few custom orders and I should also really finish making my samples for the Phat fiber sampler, a brand new sample box for knitters and spinners which will include many different artists already in the first box in January! There should still be many new yarns appearing in the shop though, as I still have a little mountain of unphotographed and unlisted yarns around the flat.
I will also share one quick picture before I zoom off into spinning. I spun this yarn for the spin-up-the-crazy-along on ravelry. It was organised within the novelty and art yarn spinner's group, one of my absolute favourites on ravelry!
I got pretty inspiredby my scrap stash (This yarn is mainly Merino and Merino/silk, mostly hand dyed, combined with white organic cotton) and will definitely be spinning more in this style.

Take care in this busy season!
