And we have Winners!

Thank you all for your lovely birthday wishes! I had a wonderful day, with lots of fibery goodness, and a delicious cake.
Moni's birthday cake-1

My son ordered it from an Austrian Restaurant, next town over. It's a Sacher Torte, and it was delicious. Very moist, and no whip cream needed. I did freeze a large portion of it, so we can celebrate in December, when the whole family comes together.
Now, lets get down to business:

Winner of my handspun "Pie for Everyone" yarn is: Dagny.

Winner of the "Magic Mushroom" fiber is : Zizi

Congratulations to the winners! Please send me an email with your mailing address!
I've been working on unpacking over the weekend, especially my yarn, and fiber, and I finally could get my hands on my handspun yarn bins. I was looking through them, and picked a few for my shop, which is now updated with new handspun yarn. Enjoy!
PS Wanna see my new spinning chair? Sure you do: I'm in LOVE, it's so comfy, just need a rug, so the spinning wheel wont slide.

Fabulous cake, very thoughtful cake too, as it can be froze!!
Does your wheel sit on a chair of its own? I am a bit hazy on spinning details!!

Your spinning chair is lovely. And I REALLY love that green paint. It is awesome. If we hadn't repainted earlier this year I would be all over redoing something in our apartment in that color.

Lovely chair and the cake looks delicious. Where is the Austrian bakery in Aurora (or the next town)? Would love to buy this cake - was it as good as what you get in Austria?
