It's What I've Been Working on Wednesday!



While I was at the Fiber in The Park, I was approached by a fellow vender, Natasha from Esther's Place, and asked to do a custom pillow. She liked my sheep pillows, but they looked nothing like her sheep, Esther, and asked me to make one for her that looked more like Esther.

Here's Esther:



What do you think? Does it look like an Esther pillow?

Esther is so cute! You captured her perfectly. I wish I lived closer to Illinois so I could visit that great sounding farm. I wonder if they sell core wool there? I always am looking for that, and have a tough time finding it. I'll go check out Esther's Farm, and appreciate the heads up!

Thanks! I don't know what core wool is, but they have a lot of everything wool!
