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.

You have no idea how excited I was the other night when I opened the box that contained these spindles. I could barely contain myself. As I opened the individual packages I just about peed myself with excitement. Never have I had so many gorgeous spindles in my house at one time. The best thing, for the moment, they are all MINE! bwaahaahaa. MINE!
Do I start to post them on the site?
Do I pick one and spin?
Which one do I pick?
I was sure when I placed the order that I'd want a Mt.Shasta or a Mt.St.Helens. Now that I have them in my little wooly mitts, I can't possibly decide. I don't need one of each. But one of each sure would be nice.
I quickly refrained from playing and put them up on the website. Why? If I didn't list them, I'd keep them all. I can't really afford to do that, even though my greedy little wooly heart wants to do just that.
A little more about them:
They are from the Cascade Spindle company. This company had a spindle on the cover of Spin Off Spring 2005 (Mt.St. Helens) as well as a feature within the magazine. If you have never seen these in real life you are missing out. They are absolutely amazing.
If you click on the link you will be taken to my website where you can see larger photos and get more info on these items.
Until April 19th, if you tell me in your purchase comments that you "BOOGIE" you will get a free bunch of roving to play with at no extra charge when you buy a spindle.
I also have new listings of hand painted rovings.
To top off my spindle day... The amazing Betsey just traded me her navajo Spindle.
Isn't it a beaut?!?! Now I just need to learn how to use it.
