Neighborhood Felters

Lisa Cawood, Glenda Hocker, Sue Lebs, Laura Volger and Caryl Schmid
These gals are my wonderful neighbors and they've wanted to learn to felt their own hat for quite some time. What a great fun we all had when we finally got together recently! They loved felting so much that a date has been set to meet here again soon for the SCARF CLASS!! Caution gals.....felting is habit forming!

Bekah 2010

We just made the trip to Minneapolis for a wonderful visit with our kids and four wonderful granddaughters. The drive from Greeley, CO to Minneapolis is 15 hours.....which gave me lots of time to play around with my little emachine computer. This video of our youngest grandchild and the relatives who love her and came to visit is the end result. Enjoy!!

TAOS WOOL FESTIVAL 2010

This year's Taos Wool Festival was great! Lots of sales kept us busy writing receipts. Yea....that's a good thing!!


New this year--and very well received I might add--were my glittery hand felted alpaca beads and necklaces. Also the AFCNA alpaca sox which sold so well my booth assistant (thanks Barbara...I couldn't have done it without you!) said it was "just like printing money"! They are great sox and totally sell themselves.


These super cute girls had fun trying on hats in my booth.
HAD to get pictures!








Below are pictures of my "Alpaca Fashion" I'd made for this year's booth......just before we opened for business.
