Some new Wool and Fabric...

I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival yesterday.  Had beautiful weather this year - not too hot - not too cold and no rain!  I met my niece there again this year.  We always have a great time.  I bought some new wool that I want to use for gloves (fingerless)...

 and this pattern.  I love this - it looks like it's woven, but it is knit in a linen stitch.  Gorgeous.
 My buttons were for sale at the Cloverhill Yarn Shop booth this year.  I can't wait to hear how they sold.  I'm hoping they were popular. I also did some fabric shopping recently.  I want to make a scrap quilt of houses and trees and I wanted most of the fabrics (if not all) to be polka dot.

 Happy Mother's Day!  I am just hanging out with my kids and Mark.  It another pretty day so we are enjoying the sunshine.
