Faith Sheep Update 9 (Finished!), Liberty Belles, and Some Happy Mail!

Hello hello hello! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend (and an awesome 4th of July!). It's super hot here, but I'm sticking close to home. Still a lot to do decorating the new place. We still haven't done a thing to set up the nursery - we're waiting until we know if it's a boy or a girl before we start. All I can do now is make lists and lists and lists...

I've been stitching on Liberty Belles some more. Here's what it looks like so far:

Still not enjoying working with this fabric, it's driving me bananas, but I love the design so I'm sticking it out.

I've also got a finish to report!

That's right, I'm finally done with Faith. I sewed on the little star buttons, and stitched the sheep with Wisper thread, this time in black to match the design model. This is my fourth installment of the Little Sheep Virtues series, and I can't wait to finish-finish it and start the next!

I passed by the post office late last week and picked up some happy mail. Here's my latest stash enhancement:

My order from 1-2-3 Stitch - the new Halloween pattern from Hands On Design and Just Another Button Company, Never More, along with the buttons and some 32 ct. Ivory Lugana to stitch it on. I think it's going to make an awesome biscornu! I also got another Little Sheep Virtue, Gratitude, the button, and enough 28 ct. Coffee Jobelan to stitch it and the next sheep in my stash, Love.

That's it, that's all! Big hugs,

Well done on the finish! So we know you've got at least 2 more to do... how many are in the series? Well done on the stash enhancement too, it's hard work, but someone has to do it!
