Easter Market at Ronneburg Forderkreis Castle
My Friend Terese and I traveled to a Easter Market approximately 1 1/2 hours from where I lived. This Easter Market was held in a Castle which even made it more exciting. The bottom photo is of me getting my first needle felting lesson from the Wool Lady. I have been "Crazy" about wool felting ever since. The third photo is of the wool lady felting away surrounded by all her very lovely nature dyed wools and the things she had wool felted and knitted. The second photo is of all the nature dyed wools I bought from the "Wool Lady" and brought home with me to Western Michigan. The Wool Lady told me she dyed her wool from roots of plants, like onions, and different kinds of flowers. She invited me to her home and in her basement was many many shelves of wool all nature dyed with so many shades of colors. The top photo is of the Forderkreis Castle in Ronneburg and the surrounding countryside. When I came home from my 2 years in Giessen, Germany in 2004, my DH bought me a Baby Lock Embellisher which machines felts wool and I absolutely love it. I have so many wonderful photos of my travels in Europe that I will probably being sharing them with you all for some time to come. vbg But My Memories of Easter Markets In Germany are amongst my favorites.
