Whew! It's been a busy week here. I finally put the suitcases away last night - they'd been sitting around since we got back from Kuwait on Saturday. Work started again after the holidays. I still have a massive to-do list, but I actually managed to get a lot done this past week.
Including some stitching! So I've joined Jo from Serendipitous Stitching's Gifted Gorgeousness SAL this year, and what we have to do is stitch on all those lovely charts that we are gifted in exchanges and giveaways, and post about our progress on the 15th (because it's 2015) of every month. Anyone can join in at any point during the year, so if this sounds like a good idea to you, jump in!
The first piece I'm tackling is actually a recent acquisition: Bent Creek's Free Betsy! The wonderful Shirlee from The Easily Influenced Stitcher gifted me this little kit as part of our last exchange. I picked it first because I LOVE sheep (who doesn't?) and because it was already kitted up! No rummaging through boxes trying to find floss and fabric.
Here's my start:
Not much, I know, but again, it's been a busy week. I'm hoping to have this finished by February's SAL check-in. Really loving stitching this!
The fabric is 25 ct. Dublin Flax linen, and the floss is a mix of DMC, WDW, and GAST. For some reason, the picture on the front has the red and blue parts switched. I just realized this now! I was following the chart faithfully and didn't even notice that the picture was different. That's a little weird...
Oh, and if you haven't joined my 3rd blogoversary giveaway, you can do so here.
