Addition To My Sheep Collection

I stopped at Dollar Tree on my way home from the gym today so I could get a few items to make a simple necklace that I've been wanting to make. I was so tickled to see they had received a shipment of resin animals - and the best one was a cute black-faced wooly sheep! Since I'm a rug hooker I'm very partial to these critters, and have collected quite an assortment of them to display in my studio. I might have to go back and get a few more so they can be used at door prizes for our upcoming Utah hook in next month. Here is a picture of my newest one, and then more pictures of the rest of my collection - some handmade - and some manufactured.

I love your sheep collection! I have a very small collection myself. I will have to check our dollar store to see if they have any. Thanks for the head's up and for sharing your sweet collection!

Very nice. I am a frog collector, so I understand the obsession. My "frog" issues will be the topic of a future blog posting!

Sheep are my favorite! I have one, so is that a dangerous thing? Loved your comment on my blog today. Only another primitive lover would understand! Blessings! Cathy ❤

I remember when you were looking for yellow chicks, but I didn't know you collected sheep also. Fun to see all the different types.

I love your fuzzy little sheep! They are too cute and certainly can put a smile on anyone's face!

Have a wonderful weekend girlie!

Hi Gayle, I've just discovered your blog and have enjoyed reading your posts. I particularly enjoyed seeing your sheep collection. My daughter brought me some back from Scotland which got me started.

A first for me to come across. I haven't seen a sheep collection but yours is certainly interesting. A fun thing to add to. I have collected chicken items in the past and have a lot. Much I have put away. People keep bringing me chicken things as gifts even though I say I have enough!
