Woolie Week

During the Pin It! blog hop I was asked to participate in a wool lover's blog hop by Denise of Pieced Brain.  The Crazy About Wool blog hop started today and runs through Friday.

Here is today's schedule:
Monday, September 23
Denise will be posting the schedule for each day on her blog so be sure to stop by. 

My introduction to wool began years ago and eventually it led to having a small hobby flock of Lincoln and Lincoln X sheep.  I always enjoyed seeing them out in the field, visiting with them in the barn, and it was great having their fleece available for spinning. 
The sheep have been gone for many years but I still have some of their fleece just waiting to be spun into yarn.




  1. Hello Deb.

    First thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your lovely comment.
    Second, I truly think we are kindred spirits.. I love everything UK and would love to take a very long vacation there. I have visited for only 5 days but it was way to short. I have been to France but never Paris..

    I have hook a wee star and that is it..The fiber on My Crazy Patchwork Pumpkin was hand dyed and spun for me and I still have some of that lovely fibers left. I love the photos of your precious sheep. I have NO idea how to spin wool but I am sure it is very complicated..

    Sooooooooooooooooo very nice to meet you. Hugs Judy

  2. You had sheep in your backyard, you are definitely a Wool Lover, love the pictures. Can't wait to see what you create.
