Recently I've been thinking a lot about sheep.
Ok so that probably sounds a bit odd, and may be it is. I have been known to be odd every now and then, lol. I can't really say for sure what started me off. Maybe it's just that they are constant companions when I'm out walking the local countryside. (I wandered past these guys on a hillside in Bath a few days ago) Maybe it's thinking about my upcoming trip to the Lakes, where they are most definitely part of the lakeland scenery, or maybe it's just that I've spent so much time counting them during my recent bout of insomnia :)Whatever the reason, I've decided to put together a sheep sampler of sorts. I'm going to start by making use of this piece that I made a while back.And have also been raiding some old magazines and my book collection for other sheep patterns. So if you know of any cute sheep patterns - any stitching technique will do - that you think I might be interested in please let me know. I'll be working on the blackwork sheep and/or it's variations that you can see in the right of the picture this month.
