Counting Sheep!

I’ve been counting sheep!  Lots of them! image  So all you woolies out there, three of you have won a pattern of your choice. So smart you are!  Wool= sheep = lamb!

And now you get to choose!  Any pattern.  Even a block of the month.


If your name is listed below, send me an email with your pattern choice and your significant information (address etc.) and I’ll send you the pattern of your choice!

I am enjoying this project so much — I just can’t wait for the fifth of each month to arrive — you are so creative! Given your love of animals, my guess is that this month we will have a woolly lamb or sheep.

Can’t wait for the 5th. I am going to guess a     little lamb.




















3. Annelies Dease who said: Hmmm…..maybe a lamb???? Hope I am right, because I LOVE your patterns!!! XXX Annie

  • happy zombie - Thump… the sound of me falling out of my chair when I was your lambie.
    Bang… the sound of my head hitting my monitor as I tried to hug your lambie.
    "Nine one one, what is the nature of your emergency"… the voice at the end of my phone line after I had an "a cute" heart attack after seeing block 7.

    I must be channeling you. Just yesterday we were driving and I was hoping the sorta-neighbor's lambs and sheep were out so I could snap shots of them. Hubby said, "want me to drive you to that farm on 101 that has all the sheep?". I said nah… we had just bought groceries. And even this morning, I still had a craving to see the lambies… and POOF… here is the cutest one of all!!!!

    Thank you, and I'll pretend you designed it just for moi! PS… thanks for all the lovin' you showered me with on my blocks!ReplyCancel
