Cannot believe it is Wednesday already!
24 full hours at working on the Halloween decor since Sunday night and still counting...
Today I figured I would show some of my
progress on my Animal Cracker rug.
I chose a sheep because my Great Uncle Billy
(paternal gramdpa's brother)
raised sheep on his farm.
Its hard to explain, but the side of Uncle Billy's farm
was across the street from my grandparents farm.
When the sheep were in the back pasture,
this was when I could see them.
All fluffy and a dirty white,
until they were sheared.
Then they looked so skinny and under fed,
just because they lost their wool.
I loved watching Uncle Billy's collie
herd them up when he wanted them back
I always watched his collie do it,
and was so amazed at his job as a sheep herder.
I dont remember his name,
however my granparents collie was named Shaggy.
I so hated it.
Take 2 and still did not like it.
Take 3 was not much better.
Finally take 4 I decided it was going to stay put.
In other news,
Today would have been my dad's 92nd birthday
if he were still alive.
He was the best dad ever and I miss him so!
We lost him at 64.
I finished the 5 season room for Halloween
as we call it in our gift shop....
we opened it up to customers yesterday.
I did not want to make it known yet,
but 3 of my regulars came on Monday
hoping to be able to take a peek and purchase.
I did tell them they could come back yesterday...
and 2 of the 3 did and purchased lots.
One even purchased one of my main displays,
but he told me I could keep it until mid September.
Thank goodness, because it makes the room.
I just placed a sold tag on it.
Front windows are done now.
All I have left is the kitchen area now,
which is what I will be doing today.
Thanks Saundra for corrected me on my flamingo.
Not sure why I said it was a swan from my last post.
Thanks to everyone else for your sweet comments!
Means a lot!
Being Sheepish Blessings To All!
