Here's a couple of random pieces before this one is slotted into its spot on the shelf.
poppy/tube: the shape of the flower could use some work but, eh.
loopy string doodle: I love starting with these loopy strings and going from there.
Yesterday we brought down the new Jersey (now called Daisy) to share the paddock with our milking cow, we think she'll be having her calf in the next month or so and we want her to get used to the routine, the sound of the milking machine, etc, etc. Anyway, we decided to extricate our neighbours sheep from the paddock at the same time (she's been hanging out with our cows for most of the year) and return her to our neighbours spare paddock along with our new sheep. This was an adventure that took the best part of an hour from putting a lead on the sheep and alternating between pushing her butt up the hill and running madly to keep up with her when she decided to make a bid for escape from time to time. For an old girl she can really run. really, really run. She has a funny waddle that cracks me up, though. So between pushing and running I had my moments of hysterical laughter. John, he doesn't always see the funny side, but, you know what's the point if you can't have a bit of fun at your own expense - you know? When am I likely to be pushing a 10+ year old sheep up a hill again? Hopefully never, but I enjoyed the experience........once!
