Hey there! I hope you're all doing well and keeping warm. The temperatures have really dropped here, but we're staying nice and cozy. I love this weather - I get to wear all my pretty sweaters! Of course this year I've had to put my normal ones away and buy a bunch of maternity sweaters, but it's all right. I'm eight months along now! I can't believe it, it's gone by so fast. Only a few more weeks!
I'm trying to work on the baby sampler as much as possible to get it done in time. Here's my progress this week. First it looked like this:
And now it looks like this:
So I've completely finished the lion, stitched the little bird above him, finished the elephant's frame, and started the giraffe. I'm using the same blending technique on the red bits of the giraffe that I used on the lion.
And I've got a finish to show off! I shared my stitching finish of the Gratitude sheep a couple of weeks ago, as part of our Little Sheep Virtues SAL. Here's how I finished it off:
It's the same finish I used with Love, Faith, Simplicity, Hope, and Joyfulness, as a little pillow with twine around the edge. This is the backing fabric I used:
I took the time to fluff up all my sheep with a Bunka brush. Here's my flock of six all together:
Aren't they cute? I'm so happy with how they all look. I'm going to have a take a break from this SAL until I get back to Dubai, so it'll be a while before you see these sheep again!
Lots of love,
