A few things to admire....

I realized that I've not been posting much about fiber lately, but I have been spending lots of productive time in my studio.  I pulled together some pretty pictures, and couldn't find a common thread, so I just decided to consider them as some of the things for which I'm either inspired by, happy about, or thankful for!
 We had our last cria of 2011 born recently; this was one of our best years for healthy and trouble-free crias in our 18 years of raising alpacas!
I've been getting ready making things for some upcoming sales events- this Saturday is the Jingle and Mingle Gift Party and then on December 10th we're having Art on the Farm here at Seldom Scene!
It's still been fun getting out into the woods with the dogs every day.  It's been very wet and unusually warm, so that means lots of lichens and fungus- gorgeous!
Last week I went on a field trip with our son's chorus to Morehead, KY.  I didn't have any responsibilities in the morning, so I walked around campus and to the Kentucky Folk Art Center.  It is a really beautiful and inspiring little museum, I just love folk art!  Being on a college campus brought back a lot of good memories.
May all of you have a Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you find lots of inspiration around you!

Pin It Now!

Glad to see the lovely aplacas. They're so naive and innocent look, as well the dogs are soooo sweet. I may try aplaca someday.
