I am so sorry I did not see your comment about the Bull Terrier (over a year ago). Yes Bull Terriers are nice dogs, not for everyone, very strong willed, and they must be the only dog usually.
Again I apologize, I have not been on the list for about a year due to job difficulties and sickness.
I see from your profile you like to bake as well, me too. And I would also love to stay home and enjoy my hobbies. Oh, well
Hi. I've added some photos to the slideshow on my page, showing some of the beautiful alpaca I saw at the Topsfield Fair last month. Take a look when you get a chance! My photos are on "Random" setting so you'll have to watch through all my knitting, too, to see the alpaca.
I love your new profile image showing your alpacas! And thanks for your note. There is an alpaca farm not too far from here, but I still haven't had a day off where I can get to it. However, the Topsfield Fair has been on this week and I went to an alpaca exhibit there. I spoke with the guy who owns them and learned a lot. His animals were beautiful and I took lots of pictures. I'll post a few here... I am now knitting with an alpaca blend yarn from Knit Picks, Suri Dream. What a pleasure!
So it took me awhile to get back to you. We were on vacation. We have been homeschooling for 5 years now. It's hard at times but we love it. I love scrapbooking but it is so hard to find time to do it. That's what I love about knitting - you can do it anywhere. I am looking into digital scrapbooking. I actually might get more done that way. Cardmaking is a great idea. I won't be wasting any scrapbook supplies when / if I switch to digital.
I moved to Wooster about a year ago and I love it. We have a new yarn shop in town called CallaLily and it's great. I haven't seen such a selection since I lived in Georgia. The Fiber Arts Festival is coming up. I'll have to check it out.
My sister who has a degree in 'Fibre Arts' was my inspiration in to the weaving word. She has had several weaving studios over the past 25 years, and when I would visit, she would put me on a loom. I wove for about 17 years. With only 24 hours in a day....... something had to go. I sold my floor loom but kept a smaller table loom. New Mexico is a great place to weave. There is a large weaving community in this state, and lots of sleep and Alpaca farms. Next week the State Fair will begin...... and my favorite is "Sheep to Shawl". The weavers, spinners, dyers & farmers will all be there. There's also the many Indian tribes with thier long history of weaving.......... it is a great place to be inspired.
