Judy has a wonderful shop full of sweet lambs, ewes and cozy shirts and flowing skirts!
Judy Elizabeth tells us she takes her inspiration from all the beautiful things around her. She creates sweet sculptured sheep, after having raised sheep on her ranch for several years, it is just the natural thing for her to do.
Judy is an avid sewer and says that her favorite part of her creations process “is the hand sewing – I love to do the hand sewing details -- quilting, trapunto, and the finishing of a garment or soft sculpture – having the item come to life! That is my great joy!”
Just as a shepherd sees each little difference in his flock, Judy sees the each unique aspect of her soft sculpture sheep and cherishes each one, hoping that the child or adult who receives one of her creations enjoys it just as much as she does.
Judy lives on a ranch surrounded by the beauty Montana has to offer - she can see Glacier National Park and the glory of the Rocky Mountains from her home which is close to rivers and even has a fishing creek. There are ‘the winters, the winds, the summers, the droughts, birth of children, good and bad years on the ranch, floods, fires, beautiful rainbows, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, wide open spaces, moose, elk, cougars, bear, and deer.’ All she has to do is take a look out the window to find inspiration and to remember what makes her stay.
Montana is definitely home to Judy and where she gives birth to her flock and creates many unique clothing items, along with quilting, stenciling, and even drawing cartoons! She loves everything about Montana (except maybe the summer traffic) and even ventured to say, “Where else would I want to be?”
Thank you, Judy, for sharing you sweet creations that show so much love with us and on Etsy!
