Bright Lights, Big City

My latest felted sheep is headed to Nashville for the 2010 American Sheep Industry annual meeting.



I love the bokeh of the winter lights in the wool house.



The last time I tried to make a non "fiber" sheep, someone complained that she was too fat.



I tried, but I guess I can only make what I know.

Ewes not fat, ewes just fluffy ;-).

Oooh, that's VERY nice! What do you use for a "frame," and legs? I'm feeling a hankering to make a whole horse now, not just the head and neck!

Camp said...

okay after I looked up what bokeh meant.....you are right it is gorgeous! I really like the detail around her neck and chest...she is quite a good looking sheep!

signed,

your fluffy friend

You do such a nice job with the needle felting. She's perfect.

Fluffy is a very politically correct word ewe know;) Love that sheep!!

I think that sheep needs a Cincinnati zip code ;-). She has plenty of relatives here to stay with! I think the bokeh technique provides a very Effective Resolution. Once again, the work reflects the heart of the artist...you make what you dearly love.

Very nice! She might like to live down here in East Tennessee. :)

About 20 yrs. ago I made a quilted patchwork sheep to sit by my tree. One of my daughters has it now...I think.

OK...I'm sure it's just my addled brain, but what do you mean by "non-fiber" sheep? It looks to me likes she's needle felted. What ever you used, she's awesome!

The frame is wire.

Non-fiber as is a meat sheep breed - hamp, suffolk... Apparently in "real" life they are tall and skinny ;-).

Michelle said...

Meat sheep tall and skinny? Huh? Someone hasn't been to a 4-H auction!

Your felted sheep is exceptional. You are one talented woman!

By the way, I loved the Christmas pony. A great form of exercise.

Claire said...

Gorgeous! I wish my felted sheep looked as good as yours do!
