I want to wish you a Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year with all my heart. This year has been so challenging for all of us in the world. But God is in charge; I am grateful for the health and the recovery we all had. I have faith and hope that all this will pass; and we will be able to see people's faces and shake hands again. I'm feeling in my heart the scripture in Psalm 23:4 "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff will comfort me". God protect, guide and correct for our good. I can see the rainbow after the rain. Keep yourself safe and healthy.

My book: Stitch by Stitch (volume 13) is printed in 1985. I have seen this pattern for sale on Etsy.
The pattern in the book is really easy to follow and understand. I decided to change the yarn color for the grass.
Working 9th row. The sheep body section on this pattern starts from the tail toward the neck.
Finishing body section
Ready to sew face to body.
Sewing the grass section.
I didn't want to embroider the eye as the pattern suggested. I wanted a rug look on the face.
I really like my sheep rug. It measures 35 inches long by 41 inches wide.
I placed my rug in the bathroom.

On Every Rose
I see His blood upon the rose
And in the stars the glory of His eyes,
His body gleams amid eternal snows
His tears fall from the skies.
I see His face in every flower;
The thunder and the surging of the birds
Are but His voice and carven by His power
Rocks are His written words.
All pathways by His feet are worn,
His strong heart stirs the ever-beating sea,
His crown of thorns is twined with every thorn
His cross is every tree.
Joseph Mary Plunkett.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !
"LOVE is the medicine of all moral evil. By it the world is to be cured of sin. Love is the wine of existence. When you have taken that, you have taken the most precious drop that there is in the cluster. Love is the seraph, and faith and hope are but the wings by which it flies. The nature of the highest love is to be exquisitely sensitive to the act of forcing itself unbidden and unwelcomed upon another. The finer, the stronger, the higher love is, the more it is conditioned upon reciprocation. No man can afford to invest his being in anything lower than faith, hope, love- these three, the greatest of which is love." ~Henry Ward Beecher~
"Whatsoever things are tru, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report...think on these things."~Philippians:4-8.
~Wishing you all the happiness in the world this Christmas season~
