This year I will be attending the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival!
I am so very excited, things just fell into place, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that nothing falls out of place, lol. I was originally supposed to be driving down with a friend from the guild, but she has a wedding to attend the next weekend and that would be too much travel for her. Then my mother, generously, offered to fly me down there. I accepted her offer, but as a shot in the dark, asked my library director if the library would pay for the tickets as professional development since I spend so much time teaching craft classes. She agreed, happily, so I will not even have to spend Mom’s money. My sibling is coming up to make sure that mom is okay while I’m down there, she’s on oxygen 24/7 and doesn’t get around too much. A couple of my Father’s cousins are going to let me stay with them and they will shuttle me around. This is going to be so much fun. I really look forward to seeing a part of my family again as well.
I look forward to bringing back all sorts of stories and goodies. This is going to be such a great time, now I just have to think of the right presents for my family that will be hosting me. Perhaps a yarn in the tartan of my dad’s cousin-in-law, maybe a jar of painting supplies for the other cousin, well I have over a month to figure things out.
