What are you most proud of? All of it! I had never tried anything like this before (I usually sew tote bags and clothing). I hadn't done any hand embroidery since I was eight years old and I've only recently tried machine embroidery.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Jump in and have a go! It's such a fun thing to do and I found that it really made me think of more things I can do with my sewing machine (other than straight stitch, zig-zag and buttonholes!)

I forgot to ask, How did you make the sheep?

Thank you for your lovely comment. The sheep are made of French knots for the body and heads with straight stitches for the legs.
