Heeere's Nellie!

Ta da!

Nellie is complete! And, I think, pretty sheeplike overall — especially if your experience of farm animals tends towards the comic strip rather than real life…

Here she is, enjoying the sunshine and the grass (in our brief respite from rain — it’s supposed to come back tonight for another 5 or 6 days):

And here’s that troublesome head, which I think I ended up putting on pretty much as intended, thanks to all the help I got from you guys:

Thanks again — and the baby thanks you, too, I’m sure! The trauma of a headless sheep has been avoided — and a lovely squishy toy has been produced. (Ironically, she’s made entirely of cotton… but at least she’s washable!).

That is the cutest thing I’ve seen in quite a while! Glad she’s headless no more.

Oh my, how cute is that. I definitely need to make that….

Hooray! She looks great. I’m all bouncy now from being glad I could help. :)

Goodness that came out cute! You did a fantastic job, especially with the trouble the pattern caused you! Hooray!

Very sheepy! Too bad she doesn’t eat grass… My grass is growing 5cm+ a day with all the rain. We yesterday was dry and I was able to mow the back though looking out today it will need mowing again on the weekend. (sigh)

Distinctly sheeply! Very cute—-I predict this will be the favorite battered toy that will likely go everywhere for years to come :)
