August update

Everything from this update is now sold.  I will announce the next update shortly.  If you’d like to receive an email reminder of scheduled updates, please join my mailing list (details here).

Did you have a chance to see the eclipse?  I made myself a very lo-tech pinhole camera with a couple of file folders and spent quite a bit of time on Monday checking to see if the sun was still there.  My favourite effect was the crescent-shaped shadows dancing through the leaves of maple trees in my neighbourhood.  Amazing!

The eclipse has been very much on my mind as I’ve been dyeing and naming gobstoppers, as you’ll see from the following batch.  (And a few special cakes named after characters of my friends’ making have slipped in as well– those monsters and pets and superheros are pesky that way.)  As always, every gobstopper is one of a kind, so if you see something that you love, email me to claim it.emailRemember, colours may vary considerably across different devices, so do email me if you have any questions about the colours of a particular gobstopper.  Yarn details and prices are available here.
