4 days left!

I am taking a short break tomorrow and heading to a Spin In. I need the time away. LOL!

I worked on paperwork most of the week, but I also managed to order a few more things. I've added in 3 new suppliers this week. I very pleased to be offering product from these companies. I will announce everything the the email newsletter from the store website on Wednesday. I'll try to include some images of the products due in. It will take me a few days to receive the goodies before they will be available on the website.

It's Monday again!

I have gotten so much done this past week. I can't wait to open on the 1st!

I have been in touch with several of our suppliers today and I have started to order new products and refresh some of the standards. I have really enjoyed talking to these people. They have all been so supportive.

I actually sent out 3 orders today! 2 were pattern orders and one was for my own handpainted rovings from my Etsy store. I need to move it all over into the One Planet website once I get a chance.

I've got 2 fleeces to prep too. One is a Lincoln sheep named Leonardo. I started working on him in June. I have washed the fleece several times and I am now sorting it out into locks and fiber for carding.

The second fleece is from an Alpaca rescue here in Arizona. Skippy's fleece is so soft. I can't wait to start working with him. I also received some Llama from there too. It would be good for felting with.

Leonardo appears on my Sharptalk Handcrafts Fan page on Facebook. It's in the photo albums for June 2010.

Be talking to you soon!

Yummy Yarns!

It was a great pleasure to unpack all the yarn and fiber. The feel is so luxurious. Each box and bag yielded another splendor to behold. I've included images from Monday's work. This is just about 1/3 of the inventory and much of it moved on Tuesday' I'll get those pictures up soon.

I The first few pictures are of all the bags and boxes that it took to move things here Sunday.
