Alpacas, Crazy Ladies and Valentine Hearts.

I had a wonderful day out last week with my friends Jackie and Mark. Jackie had arranged for us to visit a local alpaca farm – not actually open to the public, but they were kind enough to let us visit.

The alpacas were utterly beautiful creatures. We were all besotted by them and didn’t want to leave !

The farm have an on-line shop selling alpaca fibre in natural and dyed colours for spinning and felting, and alpaca yarns. They also sell knitted and woven items using the wonderfully soft alpaca yarn.

Friday was a Crazy Patchwork day at my house. Had some great results, all very different as usual. Two made panels for cushions, and one made a lovely bag.

Yesterday I was back at the Fabbadashery for a very full day rag rugging ! We did Proddy Valentine Hearts in the morning, and Rug Hooking in the afternoon. Met lots of lovely people there, as always !
