This piece is based on the traditional idea that counting sheep is a good way to get off to sleep! I have stitched the words by hand and then added lots of little applique sheep standing in a grassy field with flowers here and there too. I have used my own hand-dyed fabrics for the faces and legs of the sheep, so that each one has unique markings.

The piece is intricately stitched and would make a lovely addition to a spare room, or in any bedroom, for a child or older person perhaps, who is having trouble sleeping.

The embroidery is in a 10" (26cm) square lightly distressed whitened wood frame and comes glazed, corded, ready to hang, with my studio stamp on the back. The mount is signed and carries the title 'How Many?'

I always pack my embroideries very well so that you can be sure your purchase will arrive in perfect condition. I will include a little white card with double-sided tape in place for you to affix to the back of the picture, so you can add a personal gift message should you wish to do so.
Please note: this item has glass and if bought for a child must only be handled by an adult before hanging on a wall.

I have made several of these and they have been bought for the tiniest of people right up to a 90 year old great Grandma! I love stitching the sheep as each one seems to have its own personality!
