This is my blog for Finished Projects.
To read about the stitching process and join in with the Blog Hops I organise come over to Serendipitous Stitching (link in side bar).
In the mean time I invite you to "Come Happy Dance with me"
Happy Dance down on
Sheepie Farm! This cute little design is a freebie fromBronny's Bits. She is having
a sheep year. Have a look at her blog if you want to see lots of cute
sheep. Last year was Snowmen, who knows what next year will bring!
Her entry for 7th
August tells you how to get the chart.
I have changed the
colours and one of the sheep into a piggie. The reason is the book under
the photo. The small boy has 4 favourite books which we read every
bedtime. They are all published by Barefoot Books and written by
Clare Beaton. The illustrations are all photos of fabric collages and are
lovely. I really recommend them for pre-schoolers. The theme of How
Big is a Pig is opposites, each animal is shown representing a pair of opposites
- so "some cows are thin; some cows are fat", "some dogs are
quick; some dogs are slow" with the same refrain "but how big is a
pig," then a rhyming question "can you answer that?" "Do
you think you know?" Slightly less repetitive than many books!
WOCS is World of
Cross Stitch the popular magazine and here is the cover kit from Issue 181, a
lovely Margaret Sherry Christmas design. Stitched exactly as it said in
the mag with the supplied material - hard aida and non-specific threads.
