Along with my oldest children Colleen, Daniel, and Brian and Cecilia's mommy Amanda of coarse! I miss and love them all so so much!
A wonderful friend (Jillian) sent me this baby alpaca to spin. It seemed I would never get out the dirt. Then a wonderful friend I know who knows everything about getting the vim and dirt out told me a secret, soak in cold water and salt. Did a wonderful job! Thanks Franna dear! Today I dyed it in food color and now its drying. Too much fun!!! Thanks for looking!

So I'm not so impressed with my first glove, but after all it was my very first and maybe the second one will look better, or not. But I did complete one and I do know allot of people who have never attempted gloves before. So I give myself credit for that. Besides Barbie is happily waiting for the second one, she wanted to wear this one (knowing that it is 90+ degrees today) while she did her homework. Then she decided it was to awkward. LOL So I'm happy.
