I am busy, busy, busy ~ just like everyone else roaming mother earth ;)
 
I did get to finish the next in the Little House Sheep Virtues designs, let me introduce:
 
"Courage"
designed by: Diane Williams ~ Little House Needleworks
stitched on 30 ct. Weeks Dye Works Cocoa
using DMC as charted.
Finished as a little pillow on Weeks Palomino Houndstooth Wool
 
Courage 1
 
I love these little JABCO buttons....
 
Courage 2
 
....and my whole flock as it stands now....baaaaa!
 
The Flock thru May
 
Please don't forget to take a look at other's flock 'o sheep here: Stitching the Little House Flock

 Well I'm thinking the next little black sheepie in the flock....

Until then....
I'll be keeping my hands to work and heart to God, just like always!
Hugs in stitches,
