A New Sheep

Last summer at one of our rug hooking meetings, Marilyn brought a darling sheep for show & tell that her daughter had made and give to her as a gift. I really liked it and arranged to borrow the pattern to make one for myself. I got it made several months ago, but just now finished making a 'saddle blanket' to drape over his back - I ended up making a penny rug - the original pattern showed a needle punched blanket - which I really liked too - but I just wanted to put my own slant on it so it wouldn't be exactly like Marilyn's.  So here it is - all done!

Gayle, She is so cute!! I would not have cared if yours looks like mine. My sheep is a black sheep and I think you will love yours all year round as I do.
