The Shepherd and The Sheepcote

"When dusk falls, shepherds lead their sheep to a safe place to spend the night, where wolves or other predators cannot prey on the sleeping sheep. Usually the shepherd builds a stone enclosure with a small opening and he calls the sheep one by one into the sheepcote for the night. When all the sheep are safely inside the sheepfold, he will lie down in the opening so that nothing can come in the only door to harm the sheep.

The Shepherd always protects The Sheep!"

The flock that NEVER gets out!

These are some of the sheep ornaments that I make using pipe cleaners and wire and my sheeps wool.  They are a little time consuming to make but I almost always enjoy how they look, sometimes about as mischievious as the real ones out in the yard!  However the ones in the yard usually have their eyeballs pointing in the same direction, not one up and one down!
This one looks like it might be a little about where to go and if it is lunch time yet.
This one has the same quizzical thing going on, but not as bad. 

I love how fluffy they turn out and I use the colors of all my sheep so there are also grey and black and fawn colored ones. 

We have about (3) more sales happening before the end of the year.  You can catch up with us and get a flock of these cuties at Delano's Old-Fashioned Christmas where we will be located in part of the senior center in downtown Delano on Sat. Dec. 1st.  I am also hoping to take in the Shepherd's Holiday down in Mankato and have a sales table there. 
Happy Thanksgiving all and the sheep whispered to me that you should all enjoy your TURKEY!
