7. Shepard Care Sampler

Today's restart is "Shepard Care Sampler" by Little by Little. I'm stitching it on 40 count Lakeside in Autumn Gold. I had started it on 36 count Picture This, but the sheep weren't showing up and the coverage wasn't ideal, so this is a restart, even though I like the PTP fabric. No matter, I can use it for something else. It is charted for DMC, but I did a conversion to NPI. It will be nice to move it out of my work basket--I like the design and especially the sheep.


"Shepherd" is spelled wrong, and I thought about correcting it, but it kind of tickled me to leave "Shepard" in; I have spent many hours Shepardizing legal cases.


There is no drive-through pet today; BF is off at a meeting out of town, and there may be some snow on the way back, so we switched cars. I don't drive his car if I don't have to, though--cue the music from "Feris Bueller's Day Off"--I'm rusty at driving a stick shift and the car is special to him, so it will stay parked safely in the garage and I will happily occupy myself with movies and stitching. Oh yeah, and housework and schoolwork.

Pink is worried today about Gus, who is going to the vet for possible stasis treatment. Get well soon, Gus!


See you tomorrow!
