“I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talent; curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism have brought me to my ideas.”
I like this quote, because it applies to me in so many ways. Cooking, writing, dressmaking, textiles, tailoring, and now the fiber arts. Who knew that I’d be doing this? It has brought me and my family on so many adventures. Though I’d studied textiles and was introduced to alpaca fabric during my job at the Joseph Lipson Company, the curiosity of that first time I saw alpacas at a pumpkin patch visit with Jack and some friends so long ago, sparked a question to know even more about them and when we had land, how they could fit into our lives. Here we are, many years later, with a few in the pasture and me working with the fiber.
Through our introduction to these sweet animals, we’ve traveled to new places as a family, as a couple and me alone to learn more.
I’ll be sharing my whole 100 days of photos with a link when I find them all. Organization is a skill I need to work on!
So enough with the dress. The challenge is complete and I am pleased with the results. Now it’s time to buckle down as I finish prepping for Fort Days. That’s what’s on my agenda all week! What are you up to?
Here are some sweet deer in our yard this morning. They were romping and grazing.
In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, get outside for some fresh air and keep the length of an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.
Have a blessed day!
