I'm Dreaming of a Sheepy Christmas

Yesterday was Christmas Day. I spent the day knitting and weaving. Perfect. I also spent some time treasuring my new sheepy possessions.

My new roommate, Joanna L., gave me the cutest finger puppet, “Mini Black Sheep” from Folkmanis Puppets. This little thing needs a name. I’ve considered several names (Frank, Oscar, June, Mabel) but nothing has stuck. Any suggestions?

The other sheepy items were presents I bought for myself. I was in Interquilten the other day and succumbed to the siren call of a sheepy fabric, Patt# Farm-C 7744 from Timeless Treasures Fabrics. I’ve got 2 yards. Don’t have a plan yet. Maybe pillowcases?

The other impulse buy was an adorable mug by Wacky Woolies. It’s perfect for my morning cup of coffee – it holds just the right amount of caffeine juice. I haven’t tried tea in it yet.


  1. Love all your sheepy things. The fabric is very cool. How about Beatrice for the black sheep's name?

  2. Hi Pat! Great idea. I have always liked the name Beatrice. But the other day I decided on "Almira" --- it suits my new location (Lake Ann, in Almira township).

  3. I like Almira, too. She has the same twinkle in her eye as my Auntie Beatrice!

  4. Can I buy your sheep off you.
