I spent Mother’s Day with one of my best friends, Deb, at the Maryland Sheep &Wool Festival outside of Frederick, Maryland. Deb spins wool into yarn as well as dyes her own wool so it was fascinating to see the whole thing from her perspective. There was loads of beautiful yarn for purchase as well as lots of other beautiful items. I found several new things I would like to learn to do. 🙂
But best of all I got lots of good reference photos for painting. And I got to hold a one day old lamb….her mother rejected her…not the best mother on Mother’s Day…but the people who own her were bottle feeding her and they have lots of sheep and know just what to do. They make lovely blankets and throws from their wool. Check them out here.
