Love Sheep Update 1, Liberty Belles, and the July Gifted Gorgeousness SAL

Hey guys! It's been a little while. My sister came to visit early this week (now that all my in-laws have left) and she brought sooooooo many gifts for the baby! It's been so much fun unpacking everything and buying baby furniture and decorating the nursery. I managed to get some stitching done this weekend before she arrived, so here it is!

First, Liberty Belles:

Lots of progress here! All the girls are done, and I just have the words in the upper left corner and the border to stitch.

Next, my start on the Love sheep for my Little Sheep Virtues SAL:

This is my first 200 stitches on it. I finished up Faith last week and I'm working on finishing-finishing it. It should be ready to share next week!

And, finally, it's July 15th, so it's time for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL July edition! This is Jo from Serendipitous Stitching's baby - 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 (because it's 2015).

For the last few months I've been working on Prairie Schooler's Two By Two, gifted to me last year in an exchange with Emma from Emma's Bloglet (you can see my last update here). This is what it looks like now:

And that's all! I have to take my sister to the airport tonight, so after that I'll be catching up on everyone's blogs. See you soon!

Lots of love,

Nice stitching! Always nice to have your sister come for a visit! I love it when my sister comes home from New Mexico.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Shirlee's gift is looking lovely, great progress.

Can't wait to see photos of the nursery. When my older son was born 12 years ago you could buy green, yellow or lilac furniture and bedding for babies. Now it is all pink or blue and nothing else!

Everything looks great :)

Great progress on your projects. And how lovely from your sister to bring so many gifts for the baby. Decorating the nursery must be so much fun for you.
