I mentioned in my last podcast episode that I recently stitched a little gift for Dianne for her birthday. I spotted this chart in my stash and immediately knew it would be perfect to stitch for her. And since I was going to be seeing her at DFW Fiber Fest on her birthday, what better time to present her with it? Unfortunately, it took me a little longer to get it stitched and finished so I ended up having to package it up and mail to her.
Project details: Wee Wooly by Heart in Hand stitched on 32ct Vintage Pearled Barley from Lakeside Linens with my own conversion to the color palette I wanted using GAST, Weeks, Crescent Colors, and Gentle Arts Simply Wool for the sheep himself. I filled him with crushed walnut shells and used one of my favorite Anna Maria Horner Field Study fabrics for the back.
This was an absolute joy to stitch and I think I’m going to have to stitch one for myself at some point too! Dianne shared this little gift on Episode 94 of her podcast which brought a little smile to my face. If you haven’t watched her podcast, I highly recommend it. She is such a lovely person and an amazing knitter, stitcher, and quilter.
I’m so glad Dianne liked this little sheep and the colors are so her. And really, how can you resist that little sheep?!
I am grateful for fuzzy sheep and lovely friends.
