Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. I haven't been doing much besides reading and stitching, so without further ado, here's how my baby sampler has been progressing. First it looked like this:
And now it looks like this:
I've finally solved the lion problem! I really didn't like the color that was charted (to be specific, I didn't like the DMC conversion I was provided). I loved the effect of the blended colors for the elephant's ears, so I looked back at the lion and decided to do the same thing. So instead of using DMC 347 (very red) by itself, I blended it with DMC 400 (a nice brown), and it's given me this great maroon color, much more subdued. So happy with this decision!
I also got some stitching done on the Little Sheep Virtues SAL:
Gratitude is done! I was supposed to make all the sheep white, but I thought that would be boring, so I used four different colors of Wisper thread. This is more or less 1600 stitches (I can't remember the exact number). I've also attached the cute little Gratitude button. Now I just need to fluff up the sheep and finish it off!
