Hi: On the first Saturday of the month, would you like to join the ZODIAL SAL organized by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching,

Here is the link to Jo's Blog

Signe du Bélier - 21 mars - 21 avril

Of course, sheep's wool

The only stitching I found in my basket with sheeps is "Quand Noël s'en mêle" from "Un chat dans l'aiguille".
Pas simple, ce mois-ci pour trouver un ouvrage en lien avec ce signe du bélier, quelques moutons près d'une crèche de "Quand Noël s'en mêle" de chez "Un chat dans l'aiguille".

So back to the scene of nativity, some white and beige sand stitches.

Quelques points de sable blanc et beige dans la scène de la crèche.

We used to say "curled as a sheep"  "have frizzy hair" and "sheep" for foam on waves so my curly mermaid is now almost finished with closed eyes, tiny seashells in her hair and a new top and neckless . I plan to add some green sequins to fix the tail.

Avec la participation amicale de Bubulle qui a récemment pris sa retraite dans un verre à Cognac !

Frisée comme un mouton et les moutons d'océan chers à Eddy Marnay et Michel Legrand
pour vous présenter ma sirène, je trouve la chevelure particulièrement réussie !

The good news is that I found the bag with the octopus and her head, so here she is :

All thoses pieces will be stored in the box named "fishing game",
so no more lost time.
Next on the list : jelly fish

Prochaine création la méduse, collants enfants blanc et cordonnets bleus clairs.

White kids tights and blue strings.

maybe for the sign of cancer post.

As I was organizing my wool bags, I found an old 1970 calendar cloth from Phildar wool brand, I love the 70's look

My mum before going back to her accountant job, knitted for wool shops when she stopped working to raise her children. I remember joining her sometimes, all those shelves full of wools, pullovers, skirts, dresses (women wore knitted dresses on those days), jackets, caps, the knitting machine at home, sometimes as it was a simple -and boring- work we were allowed to make the narrow bands for buttons.

Le blason de la ville de Rambouillet nous offre une référence inattendue au bélier, à cause d'un troupeau de mérinos importé d'Espagne par Louis XVI.

Unexpected male sheep on Rambouillet coat of arms, reference to a merinos herd imported from Spain by Louis XVI.

See you soon.
A bientôt.

  3. Wonderful shoehorning into the Aries theme, Jocondine. Very clever.

  4. Thanks for taking part in the Zodiac SAL this month. I love the sheep theme and the beautiful mermaid with her curly hair.
    The teatowel is wonderful. I really love that style of illustration, it reminds me of some of the teen magazines from the 1970s.

  5. Un post très réussi pour ce signe du Zodiaque. La sirène est un rêve. Moi, j'ai des cheveux extrêmement frisés aussi, mais les miens sont toujours coupés très courts :)))

  6. Jadore la crèche...Merci pour la référence...
