Work's been kind of crazy so I haven't been able to update as much as I probably should.
Today, we spent a wonderful "family day" together and had lunch, ran some errands, found an awesome "safe" toy store (which is also a teacher's store which = love) and got Quinn a rubber ball, a little wooden car that he's currently slamming on everything, and two touchy feely books for the car (so they are OMGFUNNEW! when we go out for dinner), got Don some shoes which were (SURPRISE!) on sale, and we stopped at Chapters (which is dangerous for both of us) and I picked up Sock Innovation by Cookie A. I've heard so much about this book, and I've been interested in tackling socks lately, so I figured it was time. I'm excited!
Got home and had an email in my inbox that someone had purchased Goth Lipstick. This made me smile. A lot. Out of all of the things in my store, that hand painted yarn is my favourite. I'm glad that someone loves it as much as I do. I think it was the one item in my shoppe that got the most hearts. I'll have to make some more. I'm putting in a base yarn order shortly, so there should probably be a return of that colorway.
I was trying to dye something for the Phat Fiber box but it went horribly wrong...except it didn't. Guess you'll have to wait and see what comes of it. I was disappointed at first because things didn't work out as I wanted them to but it's kind of turned into something really neat. I'll have some "Briar Rose and the Little Prick" and this new one in the shoppe around box drop time. I want to get my stuff out to both the fiber lovers and the yarn lovers, so I'm sending some roving and some handspun, as well as a few goodies so I can announce my shoppe's opening.
I have a few more things to add to the shoppe but tonight I am going to wrap up some work and spend some time with the boys. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
