Vale Barn Luna.

This young lady arrived last Saturday, weighing in at 10.9 kilo and has a really curly coat. No wonder mum rolled around a great deal the day before. She almost looks as big as the cria that are nearly seven weeks old.

Cria time again

The little light female was born a week ago but the picture shows her at 8 hours old. The Brown chap was born Thursday and again pictures taken at 8 hours old. Peaches is the  name of the light one as she has a soft peach tinge to her coat on close inspection. The brown boy has yet to be named, but as our home bred boys have names related to cars,  it could be Mr Maserati, Maz for short.

Cards for Mary and Lis

Really like this stamp and must play with it a bit more. It was useful for a few quick cards when I was short of time. Unfortunately they always end up taking longer than you think.

Alfie the Alpaca

I thought this little fella was so cute. He was on the front cover of the Autumn BAS magazine. I bought the pattern and some cheap wool, not ready to use Alpaca yarn yet as I hadn't  picked up a crochet hook for at least 30years. Tension is a bit iffy in places but delighted with the outcome. I now have several of our alpaca group wanting lessons!!!!

Card for Jill

I love this technique which we did at Janet Pring's Clarity workshop. It used the mini gelli plates and a leaf stencil. I use adirondak inks for the background. It so versatile depending on which way you want the inside to be.
