Friendship Sheep Update 2

Hello hello! How are you lovely people? I actually have a decent bit of stitching to show you. This is the latest Little Sheep Virtue I've been working on, Friendship.


Here's the sheep at 200 stitches.


And here it is at 300 stitches:


Looking pretty good, right?


I managed to finish up the flower pot, the leaves and branches, made a decent start on the border, and a tiny start on the purple heart. Really good progress, I think!

Happy xxx's,

The July Gifted Gorgeousness

Oh my goodness, I'm actually posting on the 15th! What! LOL... It's time for the July Gifted Gorgeousness SAL check-in! This is the brain-child of Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. We stitch on something that's been gifted to us through exchanges or giveaways, whether a pattern, kit, fabric, floss, whatever, and post on the 15th of the month.

Last month I finished off SamSarah's Fresh Apple, so I had to rummage through my stash and pull out another project. Here's my new start:


This was another gift from the awesome Emma of Emma's Bloglet during one of our exchanges. One of my favorite themes: sheep! This is Little House Needleworks' Warm Winter Woolens. I'm stitching this on 32-count Light Mocha Belfast linen with the recommended DMC threads.


Pretty good start, considering...you know...life. This is going to be a fun stitch! I think it's just so cute.

Big hugs,

Friendship Sheep Update 1

Hi everyone! How's it going? So life is still insane. Still trying to keep all those balls in the air. In my designated stitching time for the week, I started the next Little Sheep Virtues! I haven't worked on these cuties since I finished stitching Kindness (which I haven't final-finished yet, because I haven't had the chance to pass by my LNS for backing fabric). So here is my start on Friendship:


This is the first 100 stitches. This is stitched on 28-count Coffee Jobelan with DMC, just like all the previous sheep. It's so nice to be back to stitching these little cuties!


Teeny tiny little post today! I'm going to try to make time to pass by your blogs and see what you're all up to.

Lots of love,

Not a Great Week for Stitching...

This week I picked up Plum Street Sampler's Blackberry House - which, for the record, I LOVE, so that's not the problem - but the stitching I managed to get done is just pathetic. I'm trying to keep up with posting weekly, though, so here goes:


Yep, that's it. You can see my last progress post here from a couple of weeks ago. All I could manage was that little vine on the bottom left with the two berries, and half of a leaf. Urgh! I miss the days when I could just sit down and put in hours of stitching at a time.


Oh well. I'll try to do more the next time I pick this baby back up. In the meantime, I'm probably going to start another sheep next week. I've finished up a couple of major WIPs lately, the quilt top and the 3D apple, so the anxiety-inducing pile has shrunk a little. Might as well add to it, am I right?

Happy xxx's,
