I have had my eye on this set of patterns for I don't know how long now. I finally bought them last month, and I finally stitched up one of the patterns yesterday.
|From the Farm Folk X-Stitchettes pattern set by Wee Wonderfuls|
Yup, yesterday. This little cutie only took a few hours to complete. I am so smitten with this piece!
I played around with some fabric. I like the pink better than the green because I think the pink brings out those sweet little cheeks.
(As much as I like the fabric, I kind of doubt I will do anything other than simply frame this piece.)
I nicknamed this piece "Slub City" because the linen is so...slubby. See it? The slubbiness of the linen? Yikes! ;) There was a section of the sheep that was difficult to stitch because of the slubs. Ack! (Scroll up to the second picture and look above the sheep, near the gal's ponytail. You can see how it would be difficult to stitch through some of the slubs.)
It's okay, though. The slubs don't take away from the sweetness of this piece. Maybe they even add a little something to it.
