Slow Sunday Stitching

My Slow Sunday Stitching will be the handwork on another sheep blanket.  This one is for April.


And for those have asked what a sheep blanket is, I made the sheep and have the January blanket displayed on it for the photo.


I am not sure I like the sheep all that well.  I can display the wool mats on a small table if I choose to.  Or I thought of using magnetic strips and attaching them to something metal such as a fridge.  I have seen decorating shows where they use magnetized paint on a surface.  That sounds interesting too.

I am linking to Kathy's Sunday Slow Stitching.  Pay her blog a visit and see what other's are doing.

Too cute! I like the sheep, but the colors in the April mat are amazing. Wool felt is so fun to work with. Enjoy your Slow Sunday Stitching!

Oh Karen, the April sheep Blanket is stunning. I just love those colors...that background color is stunning--a pinky-lilac? The flowers really stand out nicely. Lovely, hugs, Julierose P.S. I think your sheep is adorable...

Well, I love the sheep, especially with little the blanket.
I also really like your header quilt.

I like the little blanket. Maybe you need a different sheep. I have a pig those would look adorable on! LOL

So nice to see those lovely spring pastel colors on a cold and damp day here. Great idea for hanging minis and mats. Happy Stitching!

The sheep blanket is beautiful. Would adding a layer of wool-like fabric to your sheep make you like him more? I made a soft toy sheep for my GD and it has a jumpsuit of fake white curly fleece material and it looks good. Just an idea.

I think I have that sheep pattern and several others that are similar. It is a fun idea to change out the blanket each season and love how yours came out. Have you thought about tea staining the sheep? That would give it some character and mottling for a more prim look.

The blanket is adorable and I love the idea of changing it out. Can't quite decide about the sheep.....

Karen, I'm working on these as well but I didn't make the sheep. I sewed a small sleeve to the back, ran a long shoelace through the sleeve and tied it it a basket. I also have used the sleeve to hang them on an Ackfeld wire stand or a black wrought iron stand shown on the Attic Heirlooms quilt web site/store. Mine all all prepped. I have a few finished and others to stitch and finish. A good project for the upcoming snowy days.

Very pretty Spring blanket! I really like the one on the sheep, too.
That sheep isn't so bad--just has a rather long face. Maybe it is a horse in sheep's clothing *LOL*

Very pretty sheep blankets! I like them on your sheep, but they would look great anywhere.

I think your sheep is very cute. The blanket looks great on it. All your blankets are looking great. Your wool colors are amazing.

I love the sheep blanket. Really cute.

Cute blanket!!! I like your sheep, I think you should keep it - maybe you can display the other blankets [or just one or two] in other places while keeping one on the sheep?
