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
 
 
Overall
 
 
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
 
Toodles,
Mii

  28. You made some considerable progress on your Solo piece. Well, sometimes time is not available to the amount we want it to be. But there is still the next month ...
    I have already realized that Marie-Christine is stitching the same piece when visiting her blog. And I can understand that she chose this project as well. It's a very sweet design.
    I hope you already feel a bit better by now.
