A Flock of Sheep from Lynn in Tennessee

Here is the beautiful quilt that arrived here on Thursday afternoon made by Lynn in Tennessee - my March partner in the Doll Quilters Monthly swap - a beautiful star with a verse from the Book of Proverbs in the middle, surrounded by sheep.

Lynn has stitched the verse so neatly.

Each little sheep is grazing amongst tiny little embroidered flowers.

And a lovely touch is the black sheep of the flock on the back on the label.

Lynn and I agreed that we would no do crocodiles, alligators or any reptiles or anything creepy.
However, neither of us knew what the other was doing.  Discovering that we had both done sheep just added so much to the fun.

Thank you Lynn, I absolutely love it!  You have been a wonderful partner.

Just to add the overall sheepiness of it all, I finished the machine stitching on the lamb quilt for Lynn on Easter Sunday when I had a joint of lamb roasting in the oven...

On Monday vegetarians and those of a sentimental disposition can have a day off because I will be showing you my method of roasting lamb.  I can't look at a lamb without imagining him on a plate.
