The people sitting beside me on each train all asked me about my project. One man told me about his mother who had died recently and who had made crocheted doilies. He was not sure what to do with all the doilies. He had children and grandchildren to give them to but he did not want them to just get put in a drawer and forgotten. I suggested he have them framed and then his family members could hang them on the wall. He thought this was a great idea and was going to look into it when he got home.
One evening this week, a friend came over to knit and I sewed on the faces, heads and ears of the sheep. I also worked on some more stems and leaves.
Only a few more stems and leaves to go!
I hope to put some more stitches in tomorrow for slow Sunday Stitching. There are some little buttons to add for the eyes too. Then, it will have to be quilted by hand too. It's a good thing this is a small wall hanging! My deadline for this project and other gifts is looming!
I made another snowman pillow this week for a special order for a friend's friend to give to his wife for Christmas. The buttons and the mouth are hand stitched so they count for slow stitching this week too.
I am linking up with Kathy for slow Sunday stitching.
