After working on the new logo for the Minnesota Lamb and Wool Producers, it was so cool to see it on merchandise. I just had to buy that huge tote bag when it came up for auction on Saturday night. The sheep heads on the logo were inspired by a sheep I did on an emu egg years ago.
The Board wanted to include a black face and a white face sheep in the logo, so I overlapped two heads and colored one in. The other Board members liked it and the graphic designers cleaned it up to what you see on the bag. Very simple and carrying a feel of the old logo forward.
I'm so happy to be home again with all the white sparkling snow on the ground. I've made some progress on the cable scarf since I got home. Thanks to Terri Drimmel for her suggestion to use the mini-quilt I bought on the table, I love it! I'll bring up my poinsettia from last year when a few more leaves turn red. It's a little leggy and there's an aloe vera plant sharing its pot right now, but it will have to do for us this year.
