I loved every stitch of this one!  Which one to start next?  Decisions, decisions, decisions...

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 
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,

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.

Hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas!

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.

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!!
