Camp Patmos

Being able to go to camp Patmos to help this summer was a lot of fun.

First, I had to learn how to fill out an application.  It was okay, but a little challenging.  The next one will be a lot easier.

Then I got to learn how to work in the kitchen during staff training.  I stayed the first week of camp to help.

Here are some pictures of when I was heading home.  I will post more when I have the chance.

P.S.  I would really like to go help again soon.

Soccer Started

This week, soccer started. I have a new coach and some new team mates.  We have only had three practices, but I think I will really like him.

Curing Fiber

I learned how to cure alpaca fiber.  I had fun experimenting. Now I want to learn how to put sparkles in the fiber.

You will need:

  • 4 cup water
  • 1 tsp citric acid
  • 2 1/2 cup washed fiber
  • 1 pkg kool-aid (or more depending on color)

Steam water (don’t boil!), pour in kool-aid and citric acid and stir. Place fiber in push down and simmer for 30 min or till water is clear. Strain, DO NOT PUSH DOWN!– you do not want to felt it. Let dry on rack.
