Fleecewife I think I had more than you but not much more.  Mine was about half a carrier bag full but they wern't squashed down.
When I went to the supermarket the man was just putting new onions out so I asked him if I could have the onion skins left in the crate. He looked at me as if I was crazy but when I told him what it was for he said ask any time. Unfortunately the shops aren't very near me so I usually have my groceries delivered but when I go to the supermarket again I will definitely get some more.

In the internet grapevine I have heard of somebody who made a cushion with a sheep pattern (I think it was intarsia, but not sure) and I was thinking to adapt it myself, changing the colours of the sheep and knitting them in their own breed's wool. How I'd love that!
Of course clever me I was using somebody else's PC and didn't think to write down the link  ::) Not much luck in trying to find it again with Google. I might just have to creat my own.

I could find just two on Ravelry:
Sheep cushion cover
Sheep pillow

I don't think either will be the one you meant, but they're both pretty cute!   :knit: :knit:

What's the nicest 'next to skin' (soft) coloured fleece you have spun?
