counting sheep

by gina
(wichita, ks, usa)

My counting sheep quilt was a first-time quilting project for me & was done with a sewing machine. Although, the embroidered sheep were hand embroidered.


I used a mix of vintage & new material - keeping in mind we knew the baby was a boy. I designed the layout on the computer first & was inspired by many "modern" quilts I'd seen in books & blogs. The sheep design is from a clover embroidery pattern I puchased at Hobby Lobby, I added the numbers.

I'm not sure exactly how long it took to complete the project...the design & cutting went quickly, the embroidery also didn't take very long.

However, when it came time to sew it all up I got nervous and let it sit for awhile all pinned up. I was afraid I'd mess it up at the sewing stage and that I'd have to start all over again! One day I sort of just decided to do it & it went really well, not perfect, but that wasn't what I was going for so in the end it was exactly what I'd hoped it would be. The mommy it was gifted to loved it & was completely surprised!

Making baby stuff is a part time job for me. I enjoy my work a lot and custom essay helped to find the tips and tricks in it. The work gives lot of happyness and joy and pleasure. No other work gives that joy and happiness. The touch of small child is immense.

I never had a chance to do this. I have my wife do all these stuff. I know that men do not do or care for these stuff. But I do. I am a man and I love doing these things for my wife. I just want to know how to do this. EMR Software
