Heading to the Sheep and Wool Festival!
How I love sheepies!
Well I am headed to the
again this year!
Every year on the first weekend in May,
I head myself to West Friendship, Maryland
to the Howard County Fairgrounds
for an amazing weekend
full of Sheep, yarn, shopping,
fellowship, celtic music,
more shopping, knitting,
sheep dog trials,
I look forward to this festival every year
and this year, for just one moment,
I thought maybe I wouldn't go this year.
I truly have attended for over twenty five years,
and I couldn't bring myself to miss it this year.
I always enjoy the experience
and come home so inspired to
weave a little bit more,
pick up my knitting needles again
and come home with
so many adorable sheep photos!
This year I plan to carry my pocket
watercolors and sketchbook,
I want to come home with some
Traditions are always good,
we learn to count on them.
Time away is always a good thing
and re-connecting with fiber friends
that I haven't seen in a year,
is always so special!
This festival is good for my creative soul,
I need it
what was I thinking when I said I might not go this year?????
So off I go!
Perhaps I will share some fun photos
right here ... same time ... next Wednesday!
