Baa!

“It is pure potential. Every ball or skein of yarn holds something inside it, and the great mystery of what that might be can be almost spiritual” 
― Stephanie Pearl-McPheeKnitting Rules!: The Yarn Harlot's Bag of Knitting Tricks


Inspired by my Sheep Ball of Yarn hand carved rubber stamp, I've been dreaming of making this girl for a couple of months now.  I'm quite pleased with how she turned out and look forward to creating a small flock.

She is a mixed media sculpture made from polymer clay and wool yarn, and of course, love and imagination.  She is adorned with a little gold bell and vintage floral fabric from my grandmother's stash.
I couldn't help but draw her a couple of friends. She'd otherwise be lonely.
I was first introduced to polymer clay when I was very young.  My aunt still has the little cow I made!  These next items are a few I have in my personal collection and they were all made in 2002 (really, twelve years ago?!)

Thanks, Ladies! I am working on creating a small flock for our Spring Bazaar in May. I'll post more pics as this project develops. Many thanks for your kind words and support!

Your creations are simply beautiful. I see you will have some of your little lambs in your Spring Bazaar. Will there be any available to purchase on-line? I believe I would be a little far to come to your bazaar, even though I would love to. Thanks for any info.

Thank you very much! I have plans to release a limited number of them online before the bazaar, then they'll be available in my Etsy shop after May.
