And some more pics - a little deviation from the called for hairdo's - I didn't want straight stitched hair so I improvised, and I changed the skin from white to DMC 950:
Some sheepies (those little ones were stinkers being that they were over one):
And another shot - just because - (because I'm so darned tickled that she's done):
I just love her. I think that she'll look wonderful hanging above the Phebe quilt, don't you? I know I'm being overly optimistic that I'll even finish that quilt, but I can see this hanging above the bed in the guest room when Phebe is finished. But now I'm feeling stitcher's remorse. I'm going to miss her and I don't know what to stitch next!!! I guess I'll have to do some stash diving tonight. Well, maybe not - I heard that little voice in my head that says I should go back to a WIP - darned that voice!! Maybe I just won't listen (smile).
I had a wonderful surprise this week, too. I won a giveaway on Jeanne's blog - Willow Tree Stitcher - a beautiful needlebook!! The outside:
Isn't it gorgeous? I think it's beautiful and just love it and am so happy that I received it. The stitching and finishing are both just exquisite!!! Thank you Jeanne!
Well, this is short and sweet because dinner is brewing on the stove (well, not really - there is a chicken in the crock pot) but it's time to get everything else going. Then I need a long walk. I'm not used to sitting in the stitching chair during the day. I've got a good case of stitch butt going on right now, so a long walk is definitely in order!!!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!!
