Faith Sheep Update 2

We're finally moving, folks! We have been apartment-shopping for almost a year, and sometime in December we saw one place that I absolutely loved. Months later, we finally got the bank approval for the mortgage, pulled the money together for the down payment, signed all the papers...and we were handed the keys two weeks ago! We've still got a long road ahead of us - in the past week we've turned on the water & electricity, got a cleaning crew in to scrub the place, and ordered some furniture. We're moving from a one-bedroom to a three-bedroom, so we've got quite a bit of room to fill. They still need to come deliver and assemble it all, but I'm so excited to see the place start to come together!

Anyways, I managed to find a little time to make some progress on our Little Sheep Virtues SAL. This is my Faith:


This is at 400 stitches now. I've finished the grass and have started stitching the little house. Aren't those flower bushes pretty?


Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!

Big hugs,
