More sheep

Here is a quick update on les moutons. Three more fat sheep have been added in this row...there will be ten sheep total across the bottom. The groups of eight and nine are already completed. When they are complete I'll start the five going up the left side.


Questions, questions...Chiloe asked if this was being stitched for me or as a gift? I would say this is for me. I liked the design so I decided to stitch it, no plans otherwise! Cathey wanted to know what is the fabric color? This is 32 count "Blue Spruce" but I've no idea what brand.

Tomorrow is April. Do you know what that means??? YES! It's CRABBY TIME! Woo Hoo! The sheepies will be put away for a time now. I'm also suffering the dreadful New Start Itch. Like I need another project.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Adorable :)

And the sheep are so cute! Startitis is easily cured - guaranteed to at least be held at bay (for one day only) by buying new fabric, threads, pattern and sitting down and stitching on it and totally ignoring any and all WIP's. Then it can be added to the growing pile of WIP's (there's no such thing as UFO's LOL)and new stitching can emerge once again. Hmmm - maybe I need some enditis!
I didn't realize you were in OK. Just visited my brother recently in Tulsa - do you get over to the Silver Needle every so often? Drool, drool - I loved that store! BTW, thanks for posting to my blog!

Marita said...

They are adorable. Great stitching.

Angela said...

They are very cute so it's no suprise your enjoying stitching them so much.

dianemi said...

I really like seeing your WIPs of les moutons. The sheep are adorable and that fabric choice is perfect. Beware the NSI, it is indeed going around. The next thing you know, you'll be pulling fibers and looking for stash fabbie! lol (But on the other hand, don't you just LOVE starting a new project?)

Chiloe said...

I understand you are stitching that one for yourself ;-) I do that all the time. I find a pattern very attractive and stitch it with no plans at all !!!

Crabby time: I love seeing your progress on that one ;-)

Karen said...

they are coming along very well

Doris said...

i love this litle and cute sheeps.

Annie said...

The sheep really pop on that color fabric.

Crabby April reminds me that I have to put the finishing touches on those pesky tax returns!

Ginnie said...

Very cute sheep.... I hope you don't fall asleep counting them...LOL.
Looking forward to seeing April's crabby!!

Siobhan said...

Love the sheepies! They're coming along well. I hear you on the New Start Itch. Can't wait to see if you give in! ;)

Brigitte said...

Very nice progress!
I'm curious to see if the startitis really got you. It always starts with some itchy fingers ... lol.

Angela P said...

Those Sheep are soooo adorable! Can't wait to see April's crabby :)

CindyMae said...

Your sheep are looking awesome, that is such a cute design!! I have gotten the itch to start something new too, I just have so many smalls that I am working on right now for upcoming birthday cards and ATC's that I just don't have time!

Pumpkin said...

OMG, I just LOVE this project Sharon! I figured it must have been something like Blue Spruce because that's one of my favorite blues :o)

Jean said...

Oh, those sheepies brought a smile to my face. I told you how I am getting a "thing" for sheep!!! I seriously need to write to shepherd's bush about a pattern I can't locate online (sheep, of course!)

Happy Crabby April!

Andrea said...

Lauralness said...

I love, love, love the fabric you are using. I think it just makes the design look stiking and it is going to look awesome once it is done. Can't wait to see the next installment of Crabby Time! Take care.
