Spinning Alpaca fleece .

I have always spun my own wool for over 30 years now. It’s just been for me and my husband. But I have begun to spin Alpaca and I’m getting into production and products. It’s a lot of work but I love it. So I will be sharing spinning weaving and knitting, mainly Alpaca fleece along with painting in my studio from now on . Their fleece takes a lot of cleaning. They love to roll apparently.

Wishing God to bless China

China has been suffering horrendous flooding and other major calamities in the last 2 months. I’m hoping that it will hold the CCP in check but really feel for all the people suffering there. So this painting came together today, I think its appropriate for our times.
