Yesterday I traveled to Back to Basic Farms and joined a spin in from 2 to 4.
This will be held each Monday with a bigger meeting the last Monday of the month, with a show and tell etc. I think we could call ourselves the Barefoot Contessas, we all kicked off our shoes!
Here is the store's proprietress and the spin in's hostess - Joanne Evans
Now that's some bobbin she's got!!
Here is our fellow spinner Marion, she has a beautiful antique spinning wheel!
We were all laughing so much....
Isn't Joanne's store the best! She sells special teas, preserves she does herself and antiques as well as all that wool you can see, we had beautiful tea and baking too. If you want to join us some Monday please let me know and I'll pass Back to Basics number to you!
All spinners are welcome in the Owen Sound and surrounds!
A to Z Alpacas sends out their fibre vacuum packed.
Here is the side view.
Here Mary realizes I cut open the bag because she smells the unwashed alpaca, it is very clean though, no dirt, no veg matter, just not washed hence very "farmy" and all alpaca sweat and fumes.
Ambrosia to some.
She dug out the whole pile to pussy foot in and then threw her head back in the bag.
Seems my precious little Mary is a huffer.
Sad isn't it? This went on for eons.
The Addiction to Alpacas Treatment Center is calling me back today.
And now for some sunshine and light- what I spun at spin in and then plyed last night.
