3 samples of alpaca and nylon blend handspun for the alpaca farm to preview. 

My Ashford Kiwi had a makeover!!!!  I took it apart, sanded it, spray painted some of the  parts "Summer Squash" and then added rub-on transfers of Gerbera Daisies and Butterflies.  I love it.  It's so cheery and I just wonder what took me so long to do it!!

Both bottom sides are almost identical.
 I love this motif!!'s been too long since I've posted here!!  But I do have good reason...being pregnant during a ridiculously hot summer and then having a newborn and 3 other children to look after...I seem to have run out of time for much else!  

Kendall Leigh is now 11 months old and walking!  She can keep herself well occupied for short periods of time, so that gives me time to work on my hobbies.  I've been spinning again for the alpaca farm and the single on the bobbin above is spun from batts I created from different colors of alpaca.  I filled another bobbin with light fawn alpaca and plied it with this.  Very pretty...I will post photos of that hopefully tomorrow.
