Look at the cute, cute ornie that Jill stitched for me! I love sheep and have a small collection of them (seems I have a lot of collections, lol!) This ornament has been on my "stitch for me" list ever since the JCS 2006 ornament issue came out, and how lucky for me that Jill chose to stitch it up! I love the colors that she chose and how she used Whisper to make the sheep fuzzy...thank ewe Jill, it's perfect for me!"Winter's Eve" by Country Cottage Needleworks

I've been doing lots of stitching and here is a small finish to share with you today...
fabric: 28ct remnant, 1 over 1
fiber: WDW, Bethlehem
I kind of goofed up the back side of the eyelet......I placed it too close to the corner where all the excess fabric is, so it didn't close up nice and tight (or neat.) But I figure, since it's for me~~I'll just replace the eyelet if it falls out ;)
And I keep forgetting, here's the link for The Useful Needle freebies. The Humble Home chart is on this page if you were looking for it. And I can't remember who asked about stitching with DMC 115~~but I always complete each stitch before moving on to the next. That's what I do with all of the variegated DMC's and the DMC Variations (and all other hand-dyed or over-dyed threads.)
Tonight, we're going to go to one of the free concerts in the park with a picnic dinner. I've already got dinner figured out, now I just need to figure out if I'm going to bring stitchin' or knittin'!!! Hope your week is going well. Thanks for all your nice comments and for stopping by :)
