Shop Update and some Self-Serving Charity

I'm doing a really big upload today to my Etsy Store today.

Lots of spindles in this update. I've been really busy lately, so when I have a few hours to sit down and make these, I tend to make a lot all at once.

The humanitarian in me has decided to donate 25% of all profits from now until February 1 to Doctors Without Borders. This includes spindles, handpainted roving, batts and yarn. I call this self-serving charity- you can buy yourself pretty things and feel good knowing that your money is going to a good cause. Etsy doesn't seem to have a charity function set up, so I'll be doing one big donation at the end of the month.


  1. hi ya! I'm really surprised... I just discovered that I'm in love with your spindles (just placed an order) and that we share the same layout for blogging (check me). MMhhh. sometimes I feel I have a sort of double me somewhere else... could you be one? greetings for EVERYTHING (yarns, projects, spindles, ecc...)

  2. Thank you so much, we must be weird blog doppelgangers. I love your Shetland Shortie that you made. Very chic!
