Alpacas and Such...

I decided to stitch the background using DMC 3371.
I like how that instantly turned it into a rather spooky night scene.

Design - "Autumn Pumpkin"
Chart - "Autumn Leaves" #132
Designer - The Prairie Schooler
Fabric - 32 count Lambswool linen
Fibers - DMC - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 30 September 2010
Completed - 2 October 2010 


Ta-da!

After watching "Game Day" on ESPN and eating breakfast, my sister and I headed down to the  Spencer Creek Grange Community Growers' Market .
This weekend's special guests...  

Alpacas!

Two females and a darling baby.

The three were very well behaved and hummed non-stop.

The baby was shy, but beyond cute! 

The market also featured alpaca unfinished wool...

and the finished dyed product.
