Can I Be A Kiwi in 10 Days or Less...and...The Mailman Got So Very Very Mad  
 Holy rollers...what day is it? got back from New Zealand yesterday after a 24 hour return trip. Exhausting but so worth it! There is much to tell about this trip...oh New Zealand...the mother land. Must...become...a kiwi!! but this post will be tomorrow as i am jet lagged still, it's 3 in the afternoon and for some reason i need to go to sleep, right now. i have so many tasty tidbits to tell you though. including a deep dark secret i have been keeping for a long long time. be patient! all things in due time......

Meanwhile....I got home from the trip, walked into my office to find THIS:

yes! waaahaaaa! we have yarn people! BUT....it's not enough yet to fill a room and the deadline is monday.
To March 8th.
PLEASE STEP UP. The Yarnverse needs you.

Ok, you got me!
I just discovered this project today, and I spun my first core-spun yarn just for you. Let's just call it 'interesting", k? Plus I gathered some small balls of "regular" handspun. I'll ship it out on Monday :)

thank you - I had completely forgotten there was a dead line to this. Yarn is drying right now and I hope it'll reach you in time.

Thanks! I've been procrastinating on the artist statement. The yarn has been finished for weeks now and I thought I blew it when i realized today was the 1st. Back to the art table for that statement...

Re: handspun on the way
Maybe you need another book out -
lillehammer the exhibit
with photo journaling putting it all together,
photos of the yarns - some of them
and include the spinning statements all throughout the book with pictures intersperced of yarn and stuff...
i'd buy one probably more for gifts and stuff...
