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!
 
Toodles,
Mii

    1. Merci MC!
      Une bloggeuse vendait le set des 4 diagrammes sur son blog... évidemment, j'ai craqué.
      Les grilles sont arrivées hier, juste à temps pour Solo September ;)
      Quel dommage qu'il faut que j'attende pour la toile... tout est prêt, y a plus qu'à!!!

  2. I love your choice for Solo September, it's gorgeous! What a shame you had to order new fabric, I hope an extra piece or two fell into your basket!

    1. I know, this is so frustrating!
      I think it could have just about fit on a normal fat quarter size but I didn't want to risk it.
      Believe it or not, I have been really good, I've only ordered the one piece.
      Who knows, perhaps our dear friend would have enclosed a small freebie?! ;)

      It was a very small fabric order I'm afraid as I already have a good selection of colours, just on smaller pieces.
