Sheepish

I've shared pictures of my sheep collection before, and I've just recently added a few more to the flock. DD#1 made this cute little guy and gave it to me for Mother's Day. She's done things like this before and I can tell she put a lot of thought and effort into choosing a gift that reflects my interests. One year she gave me a pair of vintage sheep shears and an old sheep bell. Love it!



And I made several little of these wooly fellas to sell at our weekend retreat - and maybe some at Cambria Pines if there are any left over. I like the bumpy yarn that I found to use on them. They each have a rusty bell tied around their neck.







Yesterday we met at Vicki's house for our rug hooking meeting and I really enjoyed seeing the wall in her family room that was covered in clocks, and also had a nice quilt hanging in there.

Your gift is wonderful and made with TLC. How thoughtful. I make these little sheep myself and they are oh so sweet. They grace my Christmas tree at Christmas and my my little kitchen tree at Easter. My theme is God sent the Lamb of God to us at Christmas so we can all be saved and God provided the Lamb of God to cover our sins when he hung on the cross. Now wanting my Grand's to learn the truth and the light.

I love my sheep I bought from you. I just had to laugh when I saw all of your sheep lined up. How clever you are.
