Hooked on sheep

Here's one of the little ornaments I made by hooking with yarn. I just couldn't help myself.

My Sarah-berry

Sarah had what I would call a stroke Tuesday morning. She was thrashing but settled pretty quickly. She tried to get up and do what she always does but she had lost all sense of balance. Later she seemed depressed and unable or unwilling to get up. She wouldn't eat but drank some water. She's gotten a bit better. She can stand up and, with help, can go outside to pee and even ate a tiny bit of food this morning. I don't have a lot of hope that she'll really recover. Her dad had some sort of brain thing that did him in and he acted the same way. But I'll gladly take whatever time we have left together...

A new craft - ONO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep. I broke down and tried rug hooking...I found directions in an old Spin Off magazine for doing these cute little sheep ornaments.

Since I didn't have a real rug hook I used a crochet hook. And I didn't have the burlap or monk's cloth so I found some rough weave fabric, but the hook kept catching threads. It slowed me down but I plugged on. I DO have a real rug frame, missing one side but dragged it out of storage and liked it much better than the hoop which kept slipping. I'll post the finished sheepies soon.
