Popping Baaa-ck to show you a sheepie WIP

This chart is one recently received as a RAK - Black Sheep have more fun (a Sisters and Best Friends chart).  I've stitched it using Wisper fibres - having so much fun too.  I was advised to blend one strand DMC with one strand Wisper and it works fine.  I had white and ecru Wisper and decided to mix it up a bit.
Bottom Row middle sheep is White DMC with White Wisper.  The sheep to the left is Ecru DMC with White Wisper and the sheep on the right is Ecru DMC with Ecru Wisper.
The top row has a White DMC with Ecru Wisper to the left of the Black Sheep (Dark Chocolate Wisper) standing next to another White DMC and White Wisper sheep.
Because I've used such a strong pink aida (oh my, the Wisper and I had 'words' with evenweave!), I've changed the colour used for the wording.
I hope to be able to show you all the finish in a couple of days.  Tonight is my son's 18th birthday party and there is so much to be done today.

Love the dancing black sheep. Happy b-day to your son - mine just turned 18 as well.
