Hello Blogging buddies, I'd like you to meet Sofie the Sheep. Sofie was a gift from one of my favorite knitting buddies, Kaylyn. She presented me with Sofie yesterday at the knitting group luncheon as a thank you for helping her with her knitting.
Isn't she just adorable? She is a very young sheep and seems to wander off all over my house. I have to go and find her and see what she is into, well you know how sheep can be!
Sofie likes to snuggle with my favorite Santa.
She found my shawl and could not understand why her wool looks so different than the natural wool in the shawl. I had to explain to her that we all come in different colors, shapes and sizes, and that includes sheep.
She found the family nativity set that has been in my family for about 60 years or so. My Father gave it to me last year after Christmas. I remember this being so special when I was younger. My Dad always put a single light up there in the loft shining down on the scene below.
Sofie jumped up on Caroline the Dress Form who is dressed up in her Holiday attire.
I found Sofie climbing up the garland on the stairs. She said the stairs were too steep for her to climb all by herself, the garland looked so much easier.
She went outside to check out the new felted acorn bird house. No residents yet!
She plopped right down in the middle of Her Highness. Sofie was amazed at the beauty of the flowers surrounding her.
She climbed up into the holly tree. I told her to look closely at the beautiful berries because the birds have been eating them and they will soon be gone.
She found some beautiful purple bougainvillea but had to watch out for the thorns. She assured me that sheep do not get punctured all that often because of their thick coats, but I asked her to be careful anyway. I don't need a vet bill this time of year.
Sofie found the items for my next creative idea, hmm.............what will they become?
She found the desk where I blog, I asked her to stay here for a while, but as soon as I turned my back she was gone.
I think I might have my hands full with this new little friend, but with her cute crooked smile I know I will forgive her anything. Well that is unless she messes with my yarn, then we will have a talk.
Happy Weekend everyone!
