This design was featured in Stitch magazine, United Kingdom in December 2009! The design introduces a beginner to simple stumpwork techniques. It incorporates a bit of stumpwork, with raised, textured stitches and threads. Design measures 3 inches or 7.5cm in diameter. This design is worked in a 5 inch or 12 cm hoop or frame. Suitable for a beginner to stumpwork, who has some knowledge of crewel embroidery stitches. With the pincushion, I have used drizzle stitch for one sheep, a slip of French knots appliqued onto the background for the second and a couched woollen thread for the third. Alternatively drizzle stitch can be used for all three sheep. Both (see Counting Sheep picture) designs can be done either way! Little wired horns complete the design. A full kit. This design is also available as a pattern and print kit - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/62325832/pp10-counting-sheep-pincushion-pattern or as a PDF pattern - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/78832611/pdf-counting-sheep-pincushion-pattern All of my designer kits are beautifully packaged and presented in sturdy carrier bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
