Illustration Friday:Wool

This is my illustration for this week's topic:Wool.It is inspired by the Bulgarian folklore.I bet there are few women left nowadays who can spin wool by hand.But I remember when I was a little girl my grandma used to do it sitting on a bench by the gate visiting with the women from the neighbourhood.
My grandparents lived in a small village and this was how the village women used to rest from their daily chores: discussing the neighbourhood news and doing another craft with their hands.
