The theme for this month's ATC Swap as hosted by Lisa Liza Lou Designs is 'Bucket List'. As I mentioned the other day, I haven't gotten around to writing a new bucket list. But I still have 'Visit Australia' on my old list so that's what I used for this first ATC. The colors of the Australian flag are red, white and blue. So I've embroidered a Merino sheep on a blue background with a knitted piece in red. You wouldn't believe how many french knots it took to fill up the sheep's head. Even though ATCs are only 2.5 x 3.5 inches, it still took quite a few knots. I spent a large portion of Sunday afternoon on it. Anyway, here it is - my first ATC:
Did you know that Australia has 85.7 million sheep, mostly Merino? I've always loved sheep. I suppose that's the major reason I've wanted to go there. For kicks, every now and then I check on airfare & accommodations and attractions to see, but the reality is I don't know if I'll ever plop down the money for such a trip. It is fun to dream though.
Hope you had a good day.
