A finish and a little RAK!


I finished my first February Sheep today. It was a delight to stitch. My little sheep is off course unique as I didnt; realise until I went to do the swirly bits that I had stitched the bottom of his body in a different colour off thread from the top. I could have changed it but I love him and thats what matters.


Way back in December I had a competition on the Stitched with Love Exchanges and dear June won this package off goodies along with the Snowman I had stitched. After I took the photograph I packed everything away and being Christmas I had put it in the back of the cupboard and completely forgot all about it. Last month when I was stitching a RAK for June it came into my mind that I hadn;t sent the winning package. I was so emabarassed! Thankfully June understood what a scatterbrain I am and has now received them.


This is my first RAK off 2012. I am planning to do more of those through-out the year for friends and regular visitors to my blog. June loves her garden and shares such beautiful photographs of her flowers. I thought this Rose would be just perfect.
Hope everyone is having a lovely week-end. Hugs!

Lainey, just saw your goodies over on June's blog ~ the rose couldn't have been more perfect for her! And you know I, like you, love sheep! He's very cute and unique for sure!

Beautiful Rose design Lainey. I'm sure June loved it. I can totally related to being scatterbrained sometimes, but that's when I remind myself that we are human. Life happens and makes us nuts sometimes.

Enjoy your weekend. :)

Just love your admission!!! I too can join the I forget it club. I think your sheep is gorgeous I'd have thought 'two tone' was right. It's so good to have something unique.

Carin said...

Anne said...

Very sweet Lainey!! I love the two toned sheep!! That snowscarecrow you made for June is pretty darn cute!! Good to hear she got her package!! It happens sometimes, we just loose our minds a bit in the cupboards ^.^
That rose is very delicate and makes me think of the Body shop oil, Tea Rose, that I wore as a teen while reading Victorian magazines!!
