Are you in northern Illinois? Join me at Art in the Barn Sept 23-24 10 am-5 pm!
The endeavor supports important causes and has wonderful art.
Come try on a vest or cozy up with a new blanket —
I’ll be at space 45 (map here) and would love to see you!

I challenged myself this year to design and refine a vest pattern for Art in the Barn 2017. YES! I’m loving the result. And now I have 5 vests ready for the show THIS WEEKEND!
These are one-size-fits-most/medium, with variations in length and give in the fabric. The pattern’s throw-back cowl neck and loose, swingy fit create a vest that lays well and looks attractive on many body shapes and sizes. Allow me to introduce:
#1 Blue and Gray
Inspired by my obsession with turquoise and silver
#2 Black and Tan
I see gourds and leaves. What do you see?
#4 Foresty Green
Named for the evergreens that beckon us toward winter
The perfect partner for jeans
Come try some on!
Hi, folks! I completely forgot to announce this here on the blog, but I have wonderfully warm woolen mittens and fun one-of-a-kind Christmas stockings in my Etsy shop! There are just a handful (heehee!) of mittens left, so check them out now if you’re interested.

Our faithful US Postal Service’s 3-Day Priority Mail will get them to you before Christmas if you order by this Friday, December 16 (if you are in the US). It’s getting risky after that, but I’ll do my best to ship items quickly!
Thanks for looking! Etsy shop link: www.etsy.com/shop/TheGreenSheepStudio
Okay, it only took me a month after Art in the Barn to post new things for sale in my Etsy shop…! But I’m finally finished :).
(There was some shop upkeep required as well. I find myself wishing those software/app developers would go on vacation and allow a little moss to grow under their techie creations back at home. It’s hard for us ordinary folk to keep up!)
Over at my Etsy shop you will find these two blankets now for sale:
“Summer Nostalgia” (57″ x 70″)
The “Summer Nostalgia” story is posted here.
“The Redbud” (62″ x 76″)
“The Redbud” story is posted here.
In the Etsy shop there are also several pairs of fleece-lined wool mittens…
…and lots of keepsake Christmas stockings for the special people in your life.
Please come take a look. The doors are open for Christmas shopping, window shopping and anytime shopping. Invite your friends!
