Histoires de moutons - Jardin Privé | End Sep

Hello Peeps!
The end of September has been and gone
and it's time to share my progress on the last instalment of
I have been working on
Histoires de moutons
from Jardin Privé
This is how it will look when finished
My mid September update
My end September update
As you can see, not much was done during the second half of the month.
Life was busy and I caught a cold which
resulted in no stitching for well over a week.
I am now feeling better and hope to work on this project for a few hours
later this evening.
Solo September has been fun but not really productive for me!
I have decided to carry working on this sweet project for the time being.
Marie Christine has also decided to start working
on those adorable sheep!
Hop over to her blog for a little peek,
she is using a very pretty fluffy thread for her sheep :)
On another note,
I will be going on a cross stitch retreat soon and
am planning on starting 3 small projects!!!
I will share these with you all soon

Histoires de moutons - Jardin Privé | Mid Sep Update

Good morning Peeps!
Time for my mid month Solo September update

A little reminder of my choice
Histoires de moutons from Jardin Privé

As mentioned in my previous post,
I was slightly delayed in starting, waiting for my fabric to be delivered.
It arrived on the 2nd Sep and I have been stitching away everyday since
Here is my progress

Apologies for the dark coloured picture,
the weather is unfortunately not at its best this morning

Those little sheep are so much fun to stitch!
Pattern 1 out of 4 is almost finished.
I plan on changing the date to 2016, of course.
My model is stitched on 16ct Aida from Sew It All
Sand Dune colour

Histoires de moutons - Jardin Privé

Good morning Peeps!
It is the first day of the month,
time for Solo September organised by Justine!
I will be working exclusively on
Histoires de moutons from Jardin Privé
This is what it will look like when completed
4 designs in total that can be stitched individually or all together!
My model will have them all, this should make a nice flock of sheep :)
This project will be a new start,
so I cannot show a progress picture this time.
There is also the small matter of the fabric.
I didn't have a piece big enough in my stash of the colour I had selected.
So had to place a cheeky order with my favourite supplier Sew It All.
I am hoping the fabric to arrive tomorrow.
Wishing all the participants a great fun and
plenty of happy stitching time!
I will be back soon with an update,
stay tuned!
