Oh My Gosh!!! What an awesome weekend we had!! Sim was asked to be in an art and fiber show in Oxford, MI. He was set up right by one of the Alpaca pastures. They are so fun and sweet. I learned a lot about their fur and fibers.
They were such fun to take pics of!!
This is the shop they have right on their property and it is open on the weekends with a lot of cool hand knitted items from the alpaca fur and things on consignment they others make.
This one of my favorite things hanging from their trees. Along with feeding the birds they had suet cake holders with the alpaca fur in it for the birds to make nests!! I learned about first and second cuts. I bought some second cuts to play around with and oh yeah baby I am gonna be putting some in my suet cake holders!!

This is a shot of Sim's display. He makes the coolest bird houses. He up cycles a lot into them. Some are even made by old rotary phones. It was a blast to watch the little kids lookin at them and trying to figure them out!! LOL
The winds were quite high on Sat. and I had brought my sewing with me. My cloth I was using blew right into the Alpaca pasture!! LOL
I crawled in to it and got it!! The Alpacas didn't even care. LOL
This is what I have been sewing and making with the cloth. I am making eggs! They are turning out even better than I thought they would. And baby are they a lot of fun to make!! I made them about the same size as regular farm eggs.
Also just wanted to let you know that "Wren in the Willow" sold with in 2 days of me adding her to the shoppe!! She gone to New Jersey!! Thanks so much Diane!! My surgery went good. I am glad it is over til the next time. I got some sewing to do!!
Keep on Keepin on!!
XOXO Love ya
