A Woolly Story

Hi, All! I stitched away on several samplers this week, but mostly it was nuts and bolts dull stuff--borders and more borders, filling in, stitching lots of leaves and vines--not much worth looking at really. But, I did start a little something new this week:

"A Woolly Story" by Homespun Elegance. It's a sweet piece with lots of writing, but I loved the sheep and the simplicity of it.

As always, I had to fiddle with the colors and did a conversion from the recommended GAST, WDW and DMC fibers to Silk n Colors. I'm stitching it on a mystery color of 40count Lakeside from my stash.


We have a big, noisy thunderstorm moving through, so off I go to disconnect. Happy week ahead, and hopefully you can spend time with a friend.

You fool with stiching directions like BL does with recipies. I've NEVER had the same dish twice!

I'm down for 11 stay-at-home friends.

Love that sampler! I love samplers with sheep and or bunnies in them. Saw the lightning in the northern sky as I was headed home tonight, hope the storm was as bad as it looked.

I have enjoyed your blog and watching your bunnies. My bunny of 9 years died in my arms yesterday. I am heartbroken. This is the second one that died in my arms. I just can't even try to tell you how upset I am. I will keep watching your bunnies in all their cutest. I can't do it again. Pat
