Hello, hello! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. We spent most of it hiding indoors, prepared for Hurricane Joaquin. We had A LOT of rain and wind, and quite a few people had trees crash into their houses or cars or power lines. Several roads were completely impassable with all the flooding, but thankfully it looks like the actual storm is just going to head into the Atlantic, away from us. Yay!
The weather's been perfect for stitching. I just curled myself up on the couch, switched on the TV, and stitched away. I've made a lot of progress on my baby sampler:
The lion is really starting to come together. I'm using DMC, not the Dimensions thread that came with the kit. I used the conversion chart on Cyber Stitchers, and I am NOT happy with the conversion for his mane. It's way too red. I'm going to stitch the rest of his body and see if I change my mind, or if I'm going to have to buy a more maroon color.
I've also done some stitching on the Little Sheep Virtues SAL:
This is Gratitude at 600 stitches. Nothing incredibly exciting, just stitching and filling in the border. Borders are never my favorite part of any design. Does anyone enjoy stitching them?
