The Sheep are Finished!

These were fun, but I didn't groove on the wooly thread too much. Overall, I am pleased with the result. I couldn't find white jingle bells at my local JoAnn's, so I used silver. I also had to substitute a gray wool thread for the original Taupestone, which I think would have looked much better.

The Cricket Collection Leaflet #225

Wichelt 28 ct. Star Sapphire Linen over 2


A couple very sweet people asked how I was going to finish this. It's pretty small, but I think I want it under glass and frame, so that's probably what I'll do with it. It would make a cute long pillow however! But I'm leaning towards framing. For now, it's in the "finished" drawer with some other pieces.

I need to get cracking on my ornament for this month for the ornie challenge, and I'm guessing since I have such little time left, it will be another simple one like last month, lol! Hmmm, guess I know what I'll be doing tonight! Actually I wanted to do the "Santa Corn" design that is on the leaflet with the sheep. It's really cute and pretty small, so maybe I'll attempt that. Thanks for stopping by to peek at my finish. I really appreciate it. Have a great weekend!

omg those sheep are so stinkin cute! I actually like the silver bells better. I think the white ones may have blended in with the snowflakes...JMHO. :-)

So cute and so delicate. I think the embellishments you chose are just perfect. And I agree that it deserves to be framed!

Sue said...

That is absolutely gorgeous! The silver bells really finish it off...and it will look fabulous framed.

wow...very cute

Glenna said...

Oh! I thought of you yesterday at E-Cross Stitch. Celeste has bought a bunch of the Prairie Moon wooden box kits. The box is sort of papier mache I think, with cute designs outside--there are some Halloween ones! which is why I thought of you--and you stitch a little project to line the inside. So cute! I wanted to get one, but I was already clutching an armoad and a walletload of stuff...

Wendy said...

Congrats on your finish! The look great with the silver bells!

Dee said...

I've done Santa corn a couple of times. It's fun to do.

Your sheepies turned out adorable. I think they would look good framed OR as a pillow.

Sharon said...
