Winter White

I have stuck to the first thought I had when I saw the prompt Sandy posted; thermal undies. This was probably closely connected to the fact that the temperature dropped down below zero again the night before I saw the post.
Thermal undies are for me woolly stuff so what better way to play with this than to draw a woolly sheep, digitize it and stitch it out as the middle patch in a patchwork block. Here it is

and here is a close up of the sheep

She is kind of lonely so I may consider at some stage to add more blocks and make a small quilt. Time
will tell. I certainly enjoyed making this block. A very good start to 2010. Thanks for the prompt Sandy!
