Hello from my garden here on the Plain. Not to self - don't place the iPhone on the same level as the Joy when recording in the garden in future! Sorry if you find the spinning noise annoying; at least it didn't squeak!
Fleece to Finished Thanks to Bee for these photos from the event.

Show Report I saw alpaca...
It was very hot...
If you get a chance at a show, you must see the Lamb National!
OK, onto the exhibits...
Three handmade cards...... ....and the knitted/crocheted baby item.
