Sheep from Shellie and parts of a lamb

Shellie asked if I'd like to have some sheep charts and of course I said yes. :) Today an envelope arrived packed full with lovely sheep designs. Thank you so much Shellie! Here is a picture of some of the charts. There was some other farm animals too and I bet I'll stitch many of them too. Thank you also for the Quick-stitch designs, there's many charts I can use for cards.


I started to crochet the Fuzzy Lamb. I use a thicker yarn than in the pattern so I also use bigger crochet hooks. The yarn that I use is Novita's "Foxi" and it's not the easiest yarn to crochet since it's hard to see where the next stitch should go but it's so fluffy and sheepish that I just have to use it. :) The yarn for the face and hooves is also from Novita and it's called "7 Veljestä" ("7 brothers", name comes from a classic Finnish book by Aleksis Kivi). I have the front legs and part of the face done.
