VVF Floreanna and the AOBA Ozarks Show


I waited and waited for the results of the AOBA Ozarks show to be posted and I eagerly checked my mailbox for the results for a box with my fiber and hopefully ribbons. Actually I received the results pretty quickly (within in 12 days) but when you check the AOBA website at least 4 x a day it seems as if it is a long time.
I had sent 4 samples of 2 oz to the Ozarks show for the spin off. I like to send fiber samples to the spin off because I always get very good feedback. As it turns out my animals received 3 blue ribbons and a second. The photo above is one of my cria's from 2009. She is dark silver gray. Very lovely girl. I also sent in fiber from GA Blazing Ben's, VVF Delphine and GA Kahula Kid.
Nice gift for the holidays.

The Yarn Hollow Open House


Today was the open house at The Yarn Hollow in Grandville. It was a lot of fun. And the company was great. Thanks Melissa, twirly curly bird. As you can see from the picture Heather has her arms full of beautiful rovings and yarn. I picked up a gorgeous bag of multicolored hand dyed fleece by the Yarn Hollow ( a.k.a Rita Petteys) and some wrist warmers from Winding Wool Creek Fiber Mill, LLC. I found a lot of my wonderful knitting friends from the Peaceful Knitters Group (check them out on Raverly) were already there and knitting away! But I promised Juliette and Cait not to post their photos. Maybe next time.
All in all it was great and if you haven't stopped by they are open until 5 pm today.

Friday Fiber Arts-Etsy Store

Most of this week has been spent taking photos and working on my etsy store. And it looks as if it paid off. The store was profiled on Etsy Treasury Alpaca Shack for VVF's Art Tarts.
Here is what they look like


Hope everyone has a fun filled fiber weekend!
