~ Tombstone Sheep ~

~ Good Morning Friends & Folk ~ 
Happy Wednesday to you!
there are a lot of you out there who are expecting another bout of Winter weather...
stay safe, warm & dry and remember that Spring is only 13 days away!

I finished hooking/punching my 'Tombstone Sheep' rug last night...YAY!
I say hook/punch, because I hooked the motifs with 1/4 inch wool strips
{lamb, basket, vines, leaves & flowers}
then turned it over and punched the entire background with my #10 Oxford punch 
and hand dyed wool yarn called 'Big Sky' from Ali Strebel Designs.
{click HERE to see all of her wool yarn}

I really love how it came out ~
what do you think?

so much beautiful texture with the yarn loops mingling with the wool loops ~
it was fun to work on this way!

I just have to bind it, then label it.
It will be available as a pattern on linen, or a paper pattern and PDF as well very soon ~

On to the next!!!
Blessings from the Farm
