Feeling Sheepish

   Emerging from my common cold coma of the past week I realized I had spent most of my couch time counting sheep.  Suddenly the work basket was full of fat forms with tiny faces begging for final touches. Feeling better now, I kindly obliged.
Made from an up-cycled wool/mohair sweater, Sherman Simpleton has rented out his side  for advertising.
His face is a fingertip of an old leather glove.  Vintage gloves have been one of my go-to faves for years due to their versatility and expert craftsmanship.  
A new Sherpa fluff was born while I was resting.  Wanda proudly wears her full coat knowing it will be the talk of the spring county fair! 
Wanda's face is made of distressed leather and her tie is a simple scrap of Americana calico.
Rounding out the common cold collection is the sheep trio "Baa, Baa, Blacksheep".  These wee guys are made from up-cycled garments, garden sticks and wool roving.
The beige Baas have a face of painted cotton distressed just so, whereas the black sheep has a leather glove tip face.
In addition to sheep- pigs, mice, and bunnies were found all in stuffed and ready to finish condition- just littered all over the house.  Makes me wonder if I was actually productive in my coma- or were other wee hands at work?
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Guess we'll never know!



  1. Your posts crack me up! What a writer you are! LOVE those sheep especially the leather faces! WOW! I'd have never thought about that! I have one pattern and have yet to make a Prim sheep. Thanks for the inspiration. Glad you're feeling better!
