Sheepish Designs

I started two designs by Sheepish Designs.
I LOVE Sheepish Designs!

I LOVE SHEEPISH DESIGNS!
I love them so much I sleep with a binder full of their charts under my pillow. Well, I keep the binder by my bed at any rate. I keep the charts in numerical order. I will not part with these charts. Some people collect pottery faces with buck teeth. I collect Sheepish Designs. Please ask Dawn Bradford to release her patterns in digital form! There are actually a few I do not have.
Back to my new starts: I have long wanted to try 40 count fabric and see what all the fuss was about. I love it. I have done quite a bit on 35/36 before, and this is better. I changed the colors on Victorian Ribbons from 3722 and 223 to 221 and 3722. It is still more pastel than I would prefer, but I think I will stick with it.

I will close with my very favorite Sheepish Designs design. This was in a magazine years ago. I added the bargello in the grass.

PS (I love Sheepish Designs)

Sheepish Designs does have some beautiful samplers! I don't remember seeing Lady Love, and February is the perfect month to stitch this, isn't it? Your framed sampler is gorgeous!

I love Sheepish Designs too! i wish she would design more and come out of retirement.

Melissa said...

Gosh, I love that special touch you put in the last piece. It's just stunning!

I know what you mean. I heart Sheepish Designs too and I have my own binder though I'm sure it's not as full as yours since I only started collecting them about a year ago. I thought I read somewhere that Dawn might re-release her designs, but then that might be wishful thinking!

Looking forward to seeing more of your SD stitches!

ps Have you ever stitched the Peacock Sampler? I thought I saw it somewhere ages ago...

Lovely starts! Yeah, I could do with a few more Sheepish charts myself, actually :-)

Katrina said...

Love your sheepish pieces :-). Lady Love is so sweet.

Sally said...

Love your new starts! I only found them through blogs after she has retired from designing. Wish she'd start again!

Chris said...

Beautiful stitching. I love them all.

LOL!! So, do you like Sheepish Designs?! ;) I have Lady Love and it nearly made it into my Crazy 15 starts. I love the other sampler, too! You'll enjoy 40 ct--I really like not having to use 2 strands of thread.

I have been looking for Sheepish Designs Pillow #3 for a long time. I have the other 4, but just can't find anyone who has it. Can anyone help me?

Please tell me the name of your favorite Sheepish Designs. I just found your blog today. I have been collecting Sheepish Designs for twenty years, and I have never seen that patten. Love your blog.
