Birthday!

Last Monday was my *cough*st birthday so R and I took a trip up to Maine to visit friends and do some touring along the touristy spots – here are a few photos from our trip:

Maine 2013

As you can see, I overdose on lobster rolls. It’s a good thing we only do it once a year! ;o) My favorite? The one I get on the first night. Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster makes a wicked good lobstah roll!



Well, it appears…

…I’ve survived another trip around the sun.  For me, that’s cause for celebration SO, since I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve, in the tradition of the Hobbits, instead of you all giving me gifts, I shall give you a gift on my birthday!  (it’s not my eleventy-first birthday though, even if it feels that way on some days, hehe)

Yes, I said gift, but first, let me catch you up with my TdF spinning:

TdF 2010 - current spinning

Spun up:  ‘Champagne’ from Spunky Club December 2008, waiting to be plied:  ‘New Day’ from Spunky Club February 2009 and being spun: ‘Myrtle’ from Spunky Club March 2009.  (because I have readers who skim: THESE ARE NOT THE PRIZES!  I’m keeping these babies all to myself! muahahaha!)  ETA: All my singles for TdF are being spun on my Canadian Production Wheel, Mabelle.  Then, I’m winding off the singles from the CPW and plying on my Sonata with the Wooly Winder

My birthday gift to you?

Another herd of buckets...

A bucket bag – of your choice – from the stock in the shop.  The winner is welcome to look at what I have and then ask if I can make a bucket from a box listing.  What do you have to do to win this lovely prize?

  • Leave a comment! (and feel free to tell your friends!)
  • Tweet about it!  (no more than 1 tweet per hour, please – up to 5 tweets total.  If you include my twitter name @jessalu and a link to this post, you get an entry for each tweet!)

If we get more than 50 comments?  I’ll add a skein of handspun to the bucket!  ;o)  (handspun of my choice & it’ll be a separate prize from the bucket) ETA: Holy carp!  It only took 3.5 hours to hit 50 comments!  Okay, if we hit 100?  I’ll throw a third prize in – another bucket bag!

ETA again!: Holy carp on a cracker!  We’re up to 100+ – I guess this means if we hit 150 I’ll add a FOURTH prize, another skein of handspun!  See?  I love you guys! ;o)

This contest ends Friday night at Midnight – so you can spread the word via twitter, facebook and blogs until then!  Good luck!

Comments are now closed!  I’ll be pulling the winners over the weekend and posting them on Monday – thanks to everyone who commented and good luck!
