Peace Sheep Update 4, and the March Gifted Gorgeousness SAL

It's March 15th already (what?!) which means it's time for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL. 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.

For most of last year I was working on Prairie Schooler's Two By Two, gifted to me in an exchange with Emma from Emma's Bloglet a couple of years ago (you can see my last update here). I've finished the ark and the camels. Here's my latest installment on the project:


The zebras are done! This piece, like the camels, is super tiny and it still somehow took me all month to stitch.


Here are all three pieces together:


The Little One also cooperated enough this week for me to knock out another 100 stitches on Peace:


This is part of the Little Sheep Virtues SAL. I've mainly focused on the border this time and made a bit more progress on the tree.


My mother's in town! She just traveled all the way from North Carolina to Dubai to spend a couple of weeks with us - okay, mostly to spend time with her grandson, but I get to reap the benefits too. I just love having her around, it's so helpful and reassuring!

Big hugs,

Thank you for taking part in GG this month.
I love those zebras! I hadn't realised that the animals are all separate ornies until now.
Enjoy having your Mum around for a while. It's nice that she has come to visit her beloved grandson!

Beautiful stitching, I love those cute zebras! This is going to be such a fun piece to display once finished.
Hope you're having a lovely time with your Mum - no doubt she is taking over cuddle duty and you are getting some me time!

Well Mama, You are doing pretty good for posting so much with a new baby!! I was not so good at that being a zombie for most of the day. I even have less time now he's mobile! Love these little animals!! I should totally stitch something for Nathanael's bedroom...maybe I'll search through my charts and see what I have :D

HUGS!
