The Lion and The Lamb: Tuesday's Display Chain

Yippee Hurray!!! It's BAAAACK!!!
Misi's from 1890 Gable House Musings has brought back the beloved "Tuesday Display Chain."  This week's theme is "The Lion and the Lamb" (or, in prim parlance, bring on "The Cats and the Sheep")..... 

 This was tough....so many sheep; so many cats....where does one begin?

Hooked Sheep:

 (One of my very first hooked rugs....Pattern by Log Cabin Rugs.)

"Curly" - Pattern by Log Cabin Rugs.

Punched Sheep:

  Pattern/Design by Brenda Gervais of With thy Needle & Thread.

"Shear Pride" design by Shawn Williams of Threads That Bind.

"Greener Pastures" design by Shawn Williams of Threads That Bind.

"Have Ye Any Wool" Pattern/Design by Brenda Gervais of With thy Needle & Thread.

"Proverbs 31:13" Pattern/Design by Brenda Gervais of With thy Needle & Thread.

"Woolsey & Friend" pattern by Homespun Elegance.

Stitched Sheep:

Pinkeeps are a Pineberry Lane design stitched by Pam from basketsnprims and primitive basketcase.

Felted Sheep:
(Created by Teresa from Teresa's Primitives Treasures.)  

The Lil' Prim Cabin

basketsnprims and primitive basketcase.

Painted Sheep:

Painted by Kimberly Edgerly.

Cathy's (Tolentreasures) work.....

Painted by Kimberly Edgerly.

Miniature Painting by Kimberly Edgerly.

Steiff Sheep:

Just Sheep:

 Chickadee and Sheep by Madalynne of Pineapple Primitives.  (We miss you Madalynne....where ARE you???)

Lil Raggedy Angie's raggedy sheep.

Our Neighbor's Sheep:
So.....now are your ready to see my cats???
No? Really? All sheep-pooped out already?
Yeah...me too.  Would you think less of me if I told you I have more?
And trust me, I have almost as many cats as I do sheep.....

But I'll spare you...and my weary camera.  I'll leave you with just a very few....seems my cats come in twos:

My two favorite big cats.....

Ummmm....yeah, she's cross-eyed....and likes dirty laundry.

He's my clean laundry cat......

The infamous Welcome Cats rug I'm "working" on.....

Oh....and how about a lion ON a lamb???  Or.....a cat on a sheepskin rug (look close....you might even find a Shih Tzu.....):

If you stayed with me through this, you are a tenacious soul....Aren't you glad I don't do this very often???

Please stop by 1890 Gable House Musings and pay a visit to the other chain gang members!

Happy, Happy, Spring!
