My first sheep is finished, and I have named her Maeve.
I’ve chosen Maeve because the colour of her fleece reminds me of lush green grass, and there is a lot of that in Ireland and Maeve is the first Irish name that popped into my head – too much reading of Maeve Binchy novels I expect!
I love her to bits, and my 5 year old niece had a great time at the weekend taking her round the garden, feeding her plants.
Her fleece is removable – so handy in the hot weather we’ve been having, don’t you think!
I now want an entire flock so I’m busy working on that. And listening to the rain pounding on the roof today, making the grass grow.
