it’s beginning to look a lot like …..

Happy Birthday to Me.

Happy Birthday to Me.

Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to Me.


That’s right, the time for celebration has arrived early here at Chez Swine. Christmas isn’t for a month or so and my birthday doesn’t arrive until January, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get presents!

My bff Mary sent me a combo bday/christmas gift and it arrived yesterday. Much sooner than she anticipated actually. That’s okay, it only makes it all the more surprising!

And you my dears will not believe your eyes. Mary was guided by a good friend of hers who is a spinner/weaver. She asked this sage women what would be an outrageous thing to get for a fellow spinner and this is what she said …..

how about a peek inside the bag

yeah, baby! that’s right – two ounces of Qiviut! I just about plotzed.

Mary ordered this from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Large Animal Research Station. It is raw fiber with some guard hairs mixed in, so I will be taking this along to my next guild meeting to see what the spinners recommend.

don’t you just love the holidays?
