Sheep Got Out

Hard to believe, with our brand new fences, but today, the sheep got out.   They wound up at a neighbors house with their donkeys and cows.   They’re safe at home again.

You can get the story  in words and  photos on Jon’s website.  Above is the story I stitched in pictures and words.

    I love your stitch story Maria!! GREAT JOB!! I have been there my goats get out and the herd boss his name is Screech starts yelling for help. Do you think you will make a pillow or something out of this piece of art? I would be interested.

  2. Maria, This is wonderful….I especially like the sheep at the bottom with it’s head up… captured so much. 🙂 Makes me smile.

    Love your commemorative quilt; you have captured all the excitement of the day. somewhere on there the date or the year would be a good thing…you have created a little piece of durable memorabilia.

    This is wonderful…reading Jon’s story and taking a slow long look at this piece , well it totally tells the story ! Maybe you should frame that and hang it in the new house ! Would have to make you giggle each time you look at it.

    Maria, you have a unique voice and a capacity to create stories through your word/pictures, especially in your streaming pieces. Each piece has a story that contains other stories within it, ‘stories within stories’ like Russian nesting dolls and is able to touch the stories of others because the elements you use become metaphor. At least thats how I experience your art. This piece is priceless! You are a wonderful word/picture storyteller!

    OMG I LOVE your sheep in this – well, I actually love the whole piece!

  11. Maria says:

    Thanks for all the nice words about Sheep Got Out. It just gushed from me and I wasn’t sure about it. But it looks like it gets the story across. I’ll be doing something with it and I’ll let you know about it.

    Great piece, Maria! Based on the pic Jon posted of the girls today, they must be resting up from their little outing!

  14. Maria says:

    I think they are resting Mary, Tess was not quite herself today

    Oh, Maria, this is a hoot! I’m laughing out loud, but yet, the other posters nailed it, you told the story so beautifully all on this small piece of cloth. Your talent is amazing!!

    I liked Red, always in the center of the action. Great job Maria.

    Sheep who outsmart the fences … the same goes with cows when somebody forgets to turn on the power. It feels like they can sniff it when it is free passage for an escape attempt. I love the stitching.

    I’ve heard that’s just what they do Ida, they smell the electricity.
