That’s right! Alpacas! We visited a dear friend, Carmen, I’ve known her for ages and ages … she has an alpaca farm … just a few alpacas! It was a ton of fun! Her farm is called Prairie Spirit Alpacas,
Every single alpaca has a name! I can remember a few of the names, but Georgia is the only one I can identify! She’s the one with the spots on her. We were in the barn and it was feeding time for the gals and young gents that need extra food.
Each one has a different face and expression! I don’t think they liked me very much – many of their ears were back. And some of them looked at me as if to say, “who are you?”
I hope you enjoy the slide show … and can you pick out Georgia??? And to make this about quilting … look at all the various neutrals in their fleece!
The alpaca fleece is very soft – especially from the young. One thing I love about alpaca fleece is that it is hypoallergenic. AND, it’s warmer than sheep’s wool. Now if you’re interested in trying any alpaca products, from Prairie Spirit Alpacas, put “Gail” in the purchase code and you will receive a 10% discount! I’ll be putting in an order for some socks for my cold feet!
All of my posts have to have something about quilting in them! (my rule) … so here’s what’s happening in my studio!
I’ve been quilting a LOT on stuff I can’t show you … but here’s a sneak peak of my October Island Batik project. And, it wasn’t until I was posting this picture that I realize that the diagonal seam doesn’t go right into the corner … sigh!
There are (4) 4-piece blocks completed on my Scrappy Repro quilt. SEW, I could say that I’ve finished (4) 4-piece blocks this week!
It’s in the Bag Blog Hop
Today is the end of Week 3 of the Island Batik Blog Hop. Each blog is featuring bags made with fabulous Island Batik fabric and patterns byAnnie. I’m LOVING each of the bags … and unfortunately (or fortunately) I want to make them ALL!!!
To see a re-cap of all this week’s bags, plus an opportunity to win some Island Batik fabric, visit Island Batik’s blog.
The fabric this week is either a fat quarter pack of Williams Garden or Peacock Galore. Aren’t they beautiful???
