Ingrid's Handwoven Rugs in Paint Rock, Texas to process a portion of our alpaca fiber into rugs.
Most of the rugs are 2' x 3', though we have ordered a custom rug that was much larger for a friend. We think that there is nothing better than these rugs for softness and durability.

We picked them up last weekend when we were back from the church service in our new church. I spent the week hoping that they would ripen in time for the weekend. If the peaches held over into the following work week, I knew we would be sunk, but our chickens would be thrilled. As we got to Friday night, I knew that we would have much of the batch ready to can.
Thankfully, my mom offered to pitch in and help. She encouraged me to start researching recipes and we found some winners.
Fiery Peach Salsa from Little Jars, Big Flavors, we also made Maple Bourbon Peach Butter, Vanilla Honey Peach Butter, and Peach Sriracha Butter.
We still have a box of peaches left and tonight's task is to find a few more recipes - the canning marathon continues.
