Sheep Virtues - Hope

Hope is the first of the Sheep Virtues series, designed by Little House Needleworks, I have started.

It is stitched on 30 Count Dark Chino Linen Fabric which I found hard at first but now have got a lot more use to it. Still to add is the cute little button.

Currently I am slowly working on the second design Love .

Everyone Loves An Apron

I know everyone loves an apron. They are so good protecting your clothes from all that food you might splash when cooking, or with me I have a habit of wiping my hands on my thighs. Naughty I know. So when the opportunity to participate in an Apron Swap over at Sew Swapit came along I jumped in eagerly.  

I now know that my partner has received her apron, so here are the results.

I sent mine over to Ruth in the US.  The material I found at Spotlight when away a month ago and I thought perfect.  Apron patterned material for the apron, so I had to get it.  Instead of hemming the apron I lined it instead which turned out perfect.

Miss 17 loved being the for this one and then again for the one I received from my partner Sara.
