I made this for Belladune in the Dreaming of Spring swap.

I'd never done paper piecing before, so naturally I decided the best way to start was to make up my own pattern.  Roll Eyes  I traced a picture of a lamb from Belladune's Pinterest and fiddled with lines and angles until I had something I thought I could work with.  I ended up having to sew it in four separate pieces because I couldn't figure out how else to make all the bits go where they belonged.  The eyes and nose are embroidered and I used a strip of basswood for the hanging dowel.  The whole thing is about 4" square.

Lovely little lamb. So clever of you to make your own pattern.  It looks exactly like. I bet she loved it.
You say "scientist or artist?" like they're mutually exclusive.
