Yep! We're starting again! Last week Lija and I finished the first sheep, Hope, from Little House Needlework's Little Sheep Virtues series. This week we're starting with the second sheep, Joyfulness, although technically I'm a day late. Yesterday ended up a lot busier than I expected, so I didn't have time to post. Oh well - here's my start:
Our first sheep, Hope, took us forever to finish. We'd set ourselves a goal of 100 stitches a week, so it took us 14 weeks. Unwilling to take that long again, we've adjusted that to 200 stitches a week for the second sheep. So this is my first 200 stitches here - I've stitches a snowflake, a little tree, and the majority of the big tree.
I've also finished off my first sheep!
I finished it off as a little pillow. I've had a scrap of this Christmas-y fabric in my stash for ages, and it was the perfect size. Then I couched down some twine all along the edges, tying it off in a bow at the bottom. Love how it turned out!
All right, I've still got some wall painting to finish up. Three more walls! We're nearly there!
