The Sheep Wore Overdyes

Lorraine of Colour Complements posted a photograph of some of her threads used in a Brenda Stofft design of a sheep.  Denise's stitching is wonderful and so is the original piece, so I knew you would want to see how she used some of the Colour Complements threads.

The full design can be seen on Brenda Stofft's website. It's "Sheep with Wreath,"  fourth row from the bottom.

If you are a threadaholic and must have some to play with, here is the Colour Complements website.  I have a few precious skeins in my stash waiting for a project I might get to next year. Lovely stuff!

Lorraine also has an Etsy store.  Please don't drool on your keyboard!

Thanks for the share, Lorraine. I love Denise's sheep!

  1. Thanks so much Jane :) Denise did some lovely stitching on this piece. I adore the addition of the stumpwork leaves and all those French knots - yikes! She tells me that the bullions on the sheep fur are "real" bullions and she is continuing to add more to round out the coat. WOW, what a lot of work but the results are well worth the effort......

    1. They sure are! I hope she sends you a photo of the finished piece. It's shaping up to be great.
