How to spell Llama

This is so cute. A font, made of llamas galavanting on the page. I too can now have a herd of Llama's.

Wattle's all that then!

Well, I've been a busy person and I don't really feel like I've had a chance to catch breath let alone blog recently. It is strange because I sure miss the blog and think about my blog but it sometimes seems difficult just to sit down an write.

I have been busy decluttering. Sadly, this seems to have made a bigger mess in the cave but things are going and, to be honest I am finding it a bit of a relief. I'm eager to move onto other areas but I must stay focused on this one project for the moment.

One of the bonus's about decluttering is it frees up some money. Well, in my case it freed up a reasonable amount of money so I am waiting for a certain special something to arrive at my door. When it does, I'll tell you all about it. However, as I have been waiting patiently and one of my favourite supported spindle makers listed some spindles I couldn't resist nabbing one.

This beauty is made from Wattle (known as the acacia tree) and has some really cool and funky markings. Made by Spanish Peacock, I feel a very lucky person.

Just in case you are thinking I'm very greedy to have so many supported spindles it is so I can dress each one one after another and then move onto plying. Well at least that's what I tell myself.

Do you like my spinning bowl? Turn it over and it makes a funky tea-light holder. It appears there is madness in my method.

I also snaffled this cute little elm bowl when Iain and I went on holiday this summer. It has a little sweet spot for my new spindle.
