Howling Wind And A Black Face...

Primitive Penny Sheep punched by Rose Clay at

Oh my goodness, what a day it has been,
thus far.  Leaves and limbs taking flight.
There are downed trees everywhere
and the electricity has been 
out several times today.
We have 35 mile per hour winds,
with gusts up to 60 miles per hour.

I can hardly think of anything more 
relaxing than hiding away indoors 
while sorting through 
lovely colors of thread to add 
to my punch needle design.

The sheep's coat is punched at a higher setting.
His face is solid black.  I often prefer 
this 'not so busy' finished look, for the face.

Should complete this fellow today.
My next design is already 
swirling around in my head.
(I'm thinking strawberries)

A large kettle of Italian Wedding soup 
is simmering on the stove.
Homemade Strawberry Shortcakes for dessert.
(That is, as long as we have electricity !)

Enjoy your day...


  1. Oh, I'll be over for some shortcake!
    Such a sweet little sheep 😊
    Oh, I hate these winds
    Happy weekend.

  2. Wow! Stay inside and safe please. We had hamburger soup - good soup days these are.😊 And, I loooovvvee! this wooly, how you raised the height of the wool, the subtle swirl/model in color, and that it is front facing - darling!

  3. I love your needle punch! I have a fondness for sheep, regardless if they are our wooly kind or a craftsy one hanging on the wall. The colors that you have used are just perfect.
    Have never heard of Wedding Soup. Could you share your recipe, please?

  4. We have been watching the progress of the storms and you are in our prayers. Love the colors of the sheep and look forward to seeing the finished project.

  5. Your work is beautiful! With practice, I hope my punching will look as good as yours.

  6. Hi Rose! Your sheep is so cute and cuddly! I always enjoy seeing what you are creating! :-)
    Friday was horrible...I would have loved to have stayed home and play with needle/hook and thread...but, I had to venture out to the job. What an ordeal trying to navigate roads with trees, branches and wires strewn about! I'm hoping it's true that March is in like a lion and OUT like a LAMB! Greener days are approaching! :-)

  7. Enjoying my visit only to find a wonderful sheep for you new design. Looking perfectly wonderful as always.
    Keep warm and safe with Folk Art Hugs, Barb

  8. I love that sheep! What nice colors. I hope everything is back to normal. Have a great week.
