Name of painting based on description?

Sorry this might be a bit too vague of a description to ring a bell but I’m trying to find out the name and/or artist of a painting I’ve seen but don’t have a picture of.

Looks to be an oil painting done in a highly realistic style, I would guess it’s set in Europe but not sure of the period. The scene depicts a living area inside of a wooden home- on the right side is an old man feeding pigeons (inside the house?!), that area is fairly darkly lit. In the center of the painting is a 20-something year old woman in a chair, and several of her family members are just to the left of her, all of which are helping to turn some wool into yarn (including a old woman and a young boy). On the floor by the young woman is a baby on some blankets and pillows. Light is coming in from a window on the left side. The woman has bright red socks on which stands out to me since the rest of the painting is in much more muted tones.

Don’t know if this is anywhere near enough to go on, but thought I would give it a shot!

@spookygirl,
Does the painting depict a contemporary scene in modern times or does it look like an older painting?

@hightor,
Sorry I should have specified that- it's set in an older time. Oil lamps and women in long skirts, etc.

@spookygirl,
It sounds like it could be Dutch. I've seen stuff like that at the Rijksmuseum.

@izzythepush,
Went through a large portion of them but didn't see this painting in particular, but looking through the website I think you're correct, there's a lot of paintings in a very similar style!

@spookygirl,
Well it's a start. You've got some names to be going on with.
