It was Saturday (ya know)...and Lawrence Welk was on! I got to watch the whole show with my Uncle Lyle...woo hoo! It was a Thanksgiving show from 1973! OMG, talk about COR-NY! The (scary) hair, clothes, uber-sweetness, "Bobby and Sissy." I was surprised at how much Lyle knows about all of the characters..."those two were married but then they got a divorce and he married someone else," Lyle knew about every single person on the show.
After Lawrence Welk, we were watching Antiques Roadshow and I started feeling kind of sleepy (no matter how hard I tried, I nodded off a couple times). Then, I realized Lyle hadn't said anything for a little while. I looked over at him and he was asleep...I thought, well he'll never know if I just close my eyes for a few minutes...nothing like a little Lawrence Welk to put you in the mood for a nap.
For those of you who have been waiting for more Gale's Art, it will be shipping from Atlanta today and I hope to have it by Saturday. I talked to Gale yesterday, part of the Firestar on order will come in with this shipment and the rest will come in a couple weeks or so. The Hand Painted Semi-Solid BFL and the Hand Painted Alpaca/Silk fibers will be in this shipment, for those of you who have been waiting for it.
More of the Hand Painted Bamboo is coming too, I hope (fingers crossed) it'll come in Friday.
In case I don't post again before Thursday, I want to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Soooo, anywho...while working upstairs I ran across this quotation, which I thought I'd share with you:

Do you know that you can still watch Lawrence Welk? woo-hoo! Every Saturday evening at 6:00 PM on Comcast Channel 13 (TPT 17) there's this great Lawrence Welk program (they show reruns and tell behind the scenes stories). My Uncle Lyle (he's 90 yrs. old, dear man) turned me onto it...when I can visit him on Saturdays we watch it together! It's actually a great show, and seriously, if you live in this area you should check it out, no matter what your age is. Nice, mellow music, kinda corny, lots of memories. Hey, let me know if you happen to check it out!

HOLIDAY SALE OF UNIQUE HANDMADE ART
A lot of you know Kris Post, she teaches some of the great classes offered at The Fiber Studio. You've loved her work, this is a great chance to buy hand felted works of art directly from Kris, one day only...maybe something for yourself or for those on your holiday list. Kris and some of her friends hold this Holiday Sale each year, this is the 3rd Annual Sale.
Now, if I was more computer literate I would have been able to figure out how to get a copy of their postcard uploaded...until I figure that out, here are the details of the Holiday Sale:
where: 4047 LINDEN HILLS BLVD., MINNEAPOLIS, MN
when: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 9-5
Hope you'll stop by, do a little browsing and some buying!

An order of Felting Needles, Foam Bases and Multi-Needle Tools will also be in this week.
And then there's the Drum Carder I ordered...it should come into the shop by Friday, and I cannot wait! The Camp Pluckyfluff "experience" has opened up a whole new way of looking at fibers and the wide world of add-ins and all that. Yow.
Here's a heads up on the next Spinning Group, which will meet again Sunday, December 6th, from 12 to 4...it's a great group and all are welcome!
I think that will do it for tonight, as always keep up the Fiber Mischief-making!

Just a couple things this post. First off, due to unforeseen circumstances, the shop will be open shorter hours through Fall and Winter. Here are the new hours:
Sat 10-5 Sun 12-4
Oh, and the shop will be closed this coming week-end...we're going to "Camp Pluckyfluff" with Lexi Boeger at the Weavers Guild of Minnesota (at The Textile Center). I can't wait! I've never closed the shop for a whole week-end before and I know it will be an inconvenience for some of you (for which I apologize). But this is such a great opportunity, and a bunch of us will be there.
Also coming up is the 35th Annual FIBER FAIR sponsored by the Weavers Guild of Minnesota. It is a huge sale and goes Friday, November 13 through Sunday, November 15. I'll post more about it next time, with the hours and more information. It's a great sale!
I also have to tell you about some lovely hand painted SUPERWASH BLUE FACE LEICEISTER that's just come in. It is supersoft and the colors are deeply saturated, and it was a big hit with the Spinning Group Sunday!
I hope you're all finding the time for some "Fiber Mischief." I'll post again soon!
