Grazing Sheep is finished



Grazing Sheep
AVAS threads
Mystery fabric


Just finished Grazing Sheep, an enjoyable stitch despite the over one. Stitched as charted with the exception of the black sheep and  the omition of the back stitched outlining on the four stars.

Now what is next - in the running The Tablet Sampler or Manifesto or ............ decisions, decisions.

Wonderful finish Nicola!! There is something about that sampler that really draws me. Perhaps the wonderful baskets at the top. Congratulations on a beautiful finish!

Your work is exquisite.

You are a Turbo stitcher with Smokin' needles!

Beautiful--your needle must be smoking! The addition/change of the back sheep is still one of my favorite parts.

What's next?

Wow, it must be fourth finish since you've started this blog. Your needles must be smoking. The sampler is looking beautiful and thank you for sharing idea with a black sheep. I have this sampler in my collection and it's very close to the 'top of the pile' ready to stitch.
