My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

"Star" is born... a Primitive Sheep that is....





Now that I have time to play, I thought I would try my hand at making a Prim-Sheep. I made a practice one from muslin and used a permanent marker to make the design on the body. I have to do some hand sewing to complete that one. Then I drug out an old white chenille bedspread and started cutting. I think I will give her to my mom...she might even let like her laying on her bed. I named her "Star". Yes, I know I have finished with Christmas gifts...so
I will keep or sell the muslin one. It only took me about an hour to complete the two of them so it could be fun to make & sell them. Maybe, I will open an Etsy account... I wonder if mom counts sheep at night to fall asleep...she might like a flock...

Cute. I am envious of the time you have to be crafty. Mum in law is decorating the Christmas tree, holiday music is playing, snow is falling....and I am trying to finish a final exam before midnight! I am eager to get baking!

Cheryl,
Your little Star is just adorable. What a great job you've done! Definitly put her (or her sisters) on Etsy. :O) I'm sure everyone would just love to adopt them!
