Hexham Christmas craft fair

Today we have been at the Craft Fair at the Wentworth Leisure centre in Hexham selling our wares. It has been a good day so well worth the hours of preparation knitting and making everything look nice. It is good to show people what magnificent things can be created from alpacas.

It was a very early start (5.20am), as I had a few last minute things to get together and the car needed loading. It was absolutely freezing , in fact the car was showing -7 on the way over to Hexham. I don't think I have ever seen it so low.

My parents were still here, so mum fed and checked everyone for me this morning before she headed back to Nottingham. Thankfully the fog wasn't as bad as had been forecast so their journey back wasn't too bad. My parents have been a great help this week mum's had steam coming from her knitting needles and I also set dad on wrapping the Paca poo fire bricks - more about those tomorrow!!

Yes I was, she was lovely. She was complaining about the difficult names you give your alpacas; my mums just the same!
