Seven Sheep Puddles and It's A Wrap

I kept thinking these looked like puddles of sheep as I stitched them. Seven silly snoozing sheep.


With group seven done...that means it's finished! Fifty five fat fluffy sheep all counted and stitched!


Design ~ J'apprends à compter les moutons 
Designer ~ Mouton Rouge
Fabric ~ 32 count Blue Spruce
Fiber ~ Gentle Arts Sampler Threads

This was such a fun design to stitch! I started this project right around the time I started this blog in 2007. A long time ago! I am glad to have it finished even though I have no idea what I'll do with it!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

It looks fantastic. You did a great job!

Wow, it took you ten years to finish this! They have become beautiful sheep.

Very beautiful sheep. I don't know if you count sheep to fall asleep at your place, but for me the obvious place to hang them would be somwhere that you can see lying in bed. Then you can count your sheep every nigth and fall asleep quickly.

This is so cute!! You could make it into a big pillow to decorate a bedroom :)

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Congratulations on the long awaited Happy Dance!

I like the idea of hanging it near the bed to help you sleep.

Seven fluffy snoozy sheepies means all done - congrats on your wonderful finish. Though I'm going to miss updates on this project since those sheep always make me smile.

That's adorable! Congratulations on a long-awaited Happy Dance!

Beautiful finish! Those sheep look just like fluffy clouds to help you sleep. A pillow finish seems like a nice idea for a relatively square shape.

Julie said...

A fabulous finish, I will miss seeing these woolly wonders grow.

Tammy said...

Congratulations on your finish. I don't think I can pick a favorite group, but 5 is edging out the others by a little bit.
