the sweet and simple shepherd

before i started stitching the shepherd, i had to pack up all of the kreinik that was used on the majestic wisemen. i was skeptical as to how this sweet guy could even compare to the fancier canvases. but sure enough, with a beautiful design and the perfect choice of decorative stitches, this canvas started coming to life too.

the headdress and gown took a brief part of the afternoon...

i can't wait to stitch his little crook! the silhouette is just so sweet, can't you just imagine him in a field of sheep?
