on saturday i drove out to my childhood home and visited birdie & ed. birdie lives a mile down the road from where i grew up. i used to babysit her children. she was my mother’s friend. i haven’t seen her for about 15 years, but we exchange xmas cards every year promising to get together for coffee. last saturday we finally did.
we spent the afternoon catching up, and talking about families and life. i learned that birdie keeps 8 sheep on their hobby farm, and i was so happy to hear that raises them purely for their wool. she has her sheep sheared and then cleans, cards, and dyes her wool for her own use. i was so excited that she’s crafty and raising her own sheep that she sent me home with a big bag of her wool!
so now that i have this wonderful wool, what should i do with it? does anyone have any fun little wet felting projects to share? any tips on how to work with it?
