Embroidering little lambs

These little blocks measure 4.5″ plus the seam allowance, when trimmed,  which is 1/2″  These blocks are taking about 1/2 hour each because one first lays the sky down, embroiders, then trims, then the grass, then embroiders that in place.  The the lamb is done, and finally batting and backing go on each piece.  But aren’t they turning out cute?

I now have these three rows done and another 2 embroidered, but not put together.   I  may not get it all finished in a week, but I’ll come close.   I linking up with Patty over at  Elm street quilts  

The chickens know a good perch when they see it and the sheep don’t seem to even notice.  The girls in this pasture got their mite medicine dripped on their backs today.   it beats having shots or oral meds.

    My first thought when I saw those cute little sheep was “Mary had a little lamb”.
