More Sheep

Last week, we took care of Sissy's dog from Thursday to Saturday. When she arrived to pick up her pup on Saturday afternoon, she found us asleep on our couches trying to recover from the Day Out with Thomas. Yay-o loved it. Loved! It! And we got to spend the day with her. But it really tired us out.

I spent some time while the dude was doing his library homework (last class!) choosing the anniversary present. Given my late start and the state of my hand (improving but still not right), I've decided to do the 2001 Collector's Heart from Heart in Hand Needlearts. I had to order almost all the flosses. How do you get away with calling something a kit when it doesn't contain everything you need to stitch it?

I've been reading up a storm, but I've done a tiny bit on Curly Q Ewe from LHN. This is what it used to look like.

Anything with a sheep is always worth doing!

I like this design, it's so cute :) Happy stitches! By the way, I actually went and knitted on Saturday and it was bizarre to knit, I haven't done it for a while.

That's such a cute design - I have it in my stash, the figure in it looks a bit like me with the wild curly hair :o)

Glad to hear that you're back stitching and that the recovery is going well.

Curly Q is looking good. :D As for kits that aren't really kits, they do tend to be annoying.

Curly is looking great, and don't you just hate kits that aren't kits!!

Lovely stitching on CQE! I loved every minute spent on mine.

Ruth said...

lol Yeah "kit" is being used far too loosely these days.

Looks good and definitely progress made!
