Odds & Ends

Sandy has posted a picture tutorial outlining how to make a Chiyogami box using decoupage:Picture Tutorial . As a tip, make sure your paper doesn't bleed ink when using the decoupage glue!

Help a permaculture farmer get through a financial crunch! Oakheart Alpacas, Virginia
Pics of some available fleeces:

Whole fleeces, carded batts, and spun yarn also available: contact Tiffany or Andrew at oakheart.alpacas AT or caynreth AT for more pictures and price quotes (generally $5/oz, bulk buying options negotiable) .  

All fleeces come from a permaculture farm in Virginia, the wool is carded and spun by hand! Sandy bought a silver-black fleece from a critter called Outlaw, there’s plenty more where that came from if you want your own Outlaw wool!
