Some stitching news: I've got a new start. This is Liberty Belles by Little House Needleworks, gifted to me by Shirlee during our last exchange (so technically this would fit in with the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL - I'll have to remember that). Here's my start:
Not too shabby for a beginning. I've stitched up the Belle in the middle and the two stars on either side of her, and I'm working my way up the vine. I'm stitching this with all DMC floss, two over one on 18 count Cork linen, which is driving me absolutely crazy - the floss keeps folding under the fabric weaves. Other than that, I'm enjoying it. It's such a nice, happy, summery pattern!
I've also made some progress on the Little Sheep Virtues SAL:
All right, that's it! I've got a few chores to do around the house. My guests are slowly leaving: first my father-in-law a couple of weeks ago, and then my two sisters-in-law last week. Now it's just my MIL left, so it's gotten much easier to manage. Ramadan has been pretty draining on everything, so I'm no longer the only one taking naps! (Pregnancy is exhausting).
