The last four

Hello everyone,
My flock of 17 sheep and 2 lambs is complete making 
my basket  full to over flowing.


I had these four stitched as the patterns arrived
but was on the look out for the right felt to finish them.


I used green for `Friendship` same colour only plain for mine.


I used a pale beige but the night lights show as lemon.


The green came in use again.


And then the red from the first I use for the Christmas 
`Joyfulness`
All of my cushions I buttonholed to finish with DMC 869
three strands.
I used two strands of string for the cord and a single piece
for the bow.
Thankyou  Vonna and Diane of Little House Needleworks 
for making this blog possible.
Plus `Just Another Button Company` for your cute buttons.
I have enjoyed the journey with you all.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

another finish!

I put the final stitches into "Courage" last night--I really love the colors in this design.  Stitched on 28 count mushroom Monaco fabric using the recommended DMC floss.

finally....PEACE

I'm so far behind on this series, but who cares?  I'm having fun puttering along!  Today I finally finished the 3rd installment of this series--PEACE.

I'm using the recommended DMC floss and 28 count mushroom Monaco.  I'll decide on a finish once I've stitched the entire series.  Right now I'm leaning toward a cube finish--think how cute they would look dancing across the mantle...

Now I'm off to work on COURAGE.

Friendship

I changed the pattern a little. I took out the 1+1=2. I repeated the stem. I made the heart red. This one is really cute!!

Little Sheep

Hello my friends.
I have some finished little sheep to show at last.
As my patterns have come I have stitched them and made them up untill this one. 
I could not decided what colour cushion to make then settled for the purple shade.
The first three are on red cushions!  


Courage with the matching flower buttons to the stitched flowers is a delight.


Faith is finished with a green cushion.
The stars show up as in the night.


Back to the red for Simplicity.
Buzzy bees hang around. 


Teal for this cushion and a cute blue heart button
to complete this one.


I have been button hole stitching cushions and now have to wait till tomorrow when I can get more thread. Pity I was on a roll! 
I love the little apple button.


Tucked away in the basket but need a bigger one to show them off.
Well must start `Friendship` sheep.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
