The Poor Little Lamb is still a little bald!

An update on my Progress of the Sheep Baby Blanket, being encouraged by the lovely participants of the SAL, arranged by the lovely Avis of Sewing Beside the Sea

 Looking back to where we last were!

Developing a sheep's wool using French knots

The last time we saw the little lamb, it was starting to develop and grow some wool. By using the different threads, it is contrasting nicely to Mummy sheep. Happily, by using a thicker thread it is growing a lot quicker!

After three weeks of stitching

French knots are a great way to add texture and interest to a piece. Here, they are used to create a little lamb''s wool!

Again, not a lot of progress has been made on this poor little lamb – he is still quite bald!

With Easter and my hubby being on school holidays for a month, not a lot of anything has really happened, as you have probably guessed! Entertaining a husband and a dog can take a lot of time! I have actually been stitching – just not this poor little lamb. Combined with no catch up with my stitching group where most progress is made on this project, very little time has actually been devoted to it. There has only been one session in the sun that has been spent on it. Poor little lamb! It’s a good thing we are (supposedly) heading into summer, or else he would be quite chilly!

Mary Corbett is a big advocate of what she calls ‘fifteen minute stitching projects’ I keep meaning to make this my fifteen minute stitching project, but I tend to pick something else up (or devote that precious time to my RSN piece). Maybe I just need to be more determined to sit down and spend a bit of time on it!

Join the others!

Whilst I don’t have much to show you on my SAL project, I’m sure the other participants won’t disappoint! Do make sure you head over and see what everyone else has been up to! I can’t wait to see what everyone has been up to.

See you in three weeks for the next update on this blanket – I’m ever hopeful of some major progress! At least this time round I will have spent some time on it with my stitching group!

And a quick update on other things!

So despite things being very quiet around here lately, with school back in, and a more ‘normal’ routine appearing again, I’m eager to show you a few other things!

Tomorrow will be the long coming update on my canvaswork piece. This post has been in draft mode for so long! But with me continually wanting to get that little bit further along with it before sharing it with you, the time has definitely come!

And on Wednesday a little project I worked up quickly for my hubby as a gift for our wedding anniversary this week.

I look forward to sharing these projects and updates with you!

Now, time to make a cuppa – I’ve got lots of catching up to do to see what everyone else has been up to!

Slow progress is being made on the little lamb being embroidered as part of the SAL
