I bought a new progress keeper that I have been saving for. It is a hand crafted polymer progress keeper. I bought the little duck in a bottle (looks like it’s swimming in the bottle.) She buys the bottles but crafts the duck and puts the stuff in the bottom to look like water. Her crafting is amazing! She also sent a cinnamon roll progress keeper and a crown stitch marker. Please go check out her shop CharmingMinisShop on Etsy, you will be amazed at her crafting skills.
I was asked to help a family member at a Mall Christmas craft fair. His spouse was out of town and he needed help and I happily agreed to help with their alpaca merchandise. I have included some pictures of his set up and some cute Alpaca stuffies on his table. The yarn is from their herd. I did this on Saturday and after Church on Sunday. It was fun, I was encouraged to bring my spinning wheel to spin there, so I brought my Rick Reeves Wheel, which allowed me to get some spinning practice on it. 🙂 Since it is a double drive wheel, and I’m not real practiced on those (I’ve always used a scotch tension drive) and since alpaca is a slippery fiber, I blended some alpaca with a little wool on my blending board so that it was a little more grabby and easier to spin on a different wheel. Went well :).
Hope everyone is having a great December :).
