MTTC #496 Anything Related to Sheep (lamb, shepherd, yarn, wool)

 Welcome to MTTC's #496 Theme of Anything Related to Sheep.

Sweater or Wool/Yarn or Shepherd or Lamb/Sheep!

This is a different approach for a themed challenge for this time of year but there are plenty of crafters who knit or crochet, who love Ugly Sweater Contests, and who love a farm topic or want to include sheep on a Christmas card. This doesn't have to be holiday-related. With crafting participants from around the world, it will be amazing to see what they find time to craft!

Please include at least 1 of the theme options OR you can combine all 4 together in your project!

Competition runs from December 2-15, 2022 with start and end times of 12am Central Time/Chicago or 6am UK. 


MTTC's super craft artisan design team has found time to craft these themed projects:

Granmargaret = sweater

María = sweaters

Becca = Sheep & Shepherd Religious Thinking of You card

1st time participants: please read the blog rules found on the main page.

All participants: bragging rights of top 3 or 5 are possible with your submission of 1-3 new themed projects. 



Making time to craft in the merry month of December,
