Suffolk Sheep #4 in progress

I have been threadsketching Suffolk Sheep #4. I started at Lake Norman Quilt Festival, where I was featured artist this weekend, and needed something to demonstrate. She is coming along nicely, but still needs a lot of thread to bring her to life. 

I took these photos outside this morning, and it is a dreary day, so there are no shadows – not good conditions for photographing fiber art – and it looks flatter than it is in real life. I’ll keep stitching, and will post photos when she is done – in the next few days, I hope! 

I am working on two large versions of this sheep, and two smaller ones. It is interesting how they all have their own personalities, as I painted them slightly differently!
