New computer and Rug Hooking

Hi all!
I hope that everyone has had a wonderful holiday season. I received an IMac for Christmas :) What a lucky girl I am! I have to say that it is really wonderful and sooo much better than my old PC. My poor old PC would chug along and crash on me. So I have been in the process of trying to remember my passwords for my e-mail accounts and this blogger account. What a lot of passwords for everything! Now to get my ITunes library transfered over :)

I have been working on a little rug hooked sheep over the holidays. I wasn't really sold on it when I first got it but I have to say that it is really growing on me :) I added the little swirls in the sheep's body as a detail; but, I'm still not really sold on it yet. I like the way that the nine-patch squares are working out in the background though. I was thinking of expanding it a bit by putting a picket fence or something around the outside of the sheep. There is quite a bit of burlap left around the outside of the sheep so I think that it might look nice.

Now I just need to get onto finishing the 30's Dresden Plate quilt top for next week!

I think your hooked sheep is adorable, and I can't wait to see it with the rest of the background filled in. Makes me want to pull out my 'worms' and 'hook'. :D Happy New Year!
