Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

I did my last show of the year!
Woohoo!! Let's have a little party!
Shake your bootay, move that rumpah.
Let's boogie down, baybay!
Did you step away from your computer and shake it for me? And why not?
I'll wait, you can shake it now......
Now that the shaking, rattling and rolling is done, I've come to some executive decisions.
In January I'm going to have a pottery sale online to reduce my stock. I've had all that sheep pottery but now I'm doing bunnies, and I'll be adding alpacas soon. That's what I need to do today. No rest for the weary. I'm also going to attempt to wholesale my pottery in March. I'm starting with mugs and we'll see how it goes. (is that one decision or should I have called that 2 or 3 decisions?)
It makes me happy to spin and I make more than I need so I'll be selling yarn/roving on a more regular basis for a while. I'm working on Carissa's yarn now but after that's done I have a bunch of other rovings dyed up. I do have some yarns that I've had completed for a few weeks. In fact, if you look to the left. Not that far left, just to my side bar. There is a link to my website for some of the yarns. Or just look down (I don't want to make you work too hard on Monday morning):
I'm going to do a stash cleaning soon too. Any yarns that aren't attached to a project will go. Yeah, so I'll be scrambling trying to find a project for my yarns but if I can't do it, I'll be getting rid of the darlings. My stash isn't huge in comparison to some, but it's getting too big for my closet so I'll be cleaning up some of that. Either that or I'll get rid of fabric to make way for more yarn, hmmmm? So maybe this one isn't a definite decision yet. One thing has to go, fabric or yarn.
The rest of my stock of bags will be going up for the holiday buying and I'll be doing some others this week.
The Christmas lights are going up today. Why do you care? Because if the weather is crappy I'll be whining about it tomorrow and if I waited much longer it's sure to be crappy and I'd be whining about it. It's my decision to save your eyes from whining in words.
There, do you feel better knowing all my exucitve decisions. I should be pretty busy for the next few days. It is a huge weight off my shoulders knowing that I don't have to do a show until February. I still work regularly otherwise I'll slack off and won't have stock. But it's nice knowing that for a few months I don't have to pack boxes, pack a truck, unpack, haul the booth and boxes around, set up, sit for days, pack up again, and unpack at home. That made me tired again just thinking of it.
I had to get the blather out of the way before I started in with a photo. Did you think there would be no photo or did you skip right down here? Naughty you. I like naughty. Aren't you worried that you might have missed something good?
It's my entry to the six sox along and also a Christmas Prezzie for Dad. I'm not sure I like the jacquard done in such a pattern but I'm not frogging it. I'mm be working on more presents and I need to finish that Manly sweater for J. Hopefully I'll have something to show soon.
I've got to go unpack a truck. Have a sun-shiny Monday.
