I made a wool tree!

Is it wrong to be just a little in love with myself today? 'Cause I am. 'Cause look what sprouted up in my dining room:

I'm very proud of my work. I'm also certain that I haven't done nearly enough to prepare, I don't have enough stock, I'm going to be doing a lot of handing out my business card and hoping people contact me later, but hey, I can't do anything about that now. I have worked my fingers off the last three weeks, I bought as much supplies as I could afford without digging into high-interest credit, and I've accomplished quite a bit. It's a balancing act, doing this small business. I want to keep enough stock around so that anyone who finds me can probably find something to their taste, but not so much that I have more than i can afford tied up in the stock. I want to buy enough supplies to keep my stock high, but not so much that the business is living on credit. So, a balancing act. But an interesting one.

Look! Yarn:

Your display was LOVELY and of course I could not resist. Thanks for some beautiful fiber to spin! I very much look forward to it.

So much beautiful yarn! I am excited to hear about your fibrefest experience this year. Let us know how it went!
I tried to make it out, but it just was not in my stars. Next year!

I just found your blog, and I have to tell you that I am drooling over all of your colorful rovings. As a budding dyer/spinner myself, it's nice to see that you are so successful.
