Peace Sheep Update 10, and the May Gifted Gorgeousness SAL

The Gifted Gorgeousness SAL is Jo from Serendipitous Stitching's baby - we stitch on something that's been gifted to us through exchanges or giveaways, whether a pattern, kit, fabric, floss, whatever, and post on the 15th of the month.

For most of last year I was working on Prairie Schooler's Two By Two, gifted to me in an exchange with Emma from Emma's Bloglet a couple of years ago (you can see my last update here). I'm a couple of days late, but I was absolutely determined to finish this month's installment. Here it is!


This is the second elephant in the set.


And here's everything I've done so far:


I don't think I've got enough fabric to stitch the giraffes, so I may have to put this project on the back-burner for now. Good news is, I can start a new one now! I need to have a rummage through my stash and see what I've got.

A minuscule amount of progress on the Little Sheep Virtues SAL:


This is Peace at 1000 stitches, believe it or not! More on the border, and I've finished the water and the fish and the little wreath around the sheep's neck.


Big hugs,

Thanks for taking part in GG this month.
Great work on the elephants this month, worth waiting for!
Steady progress on the sheep too, you'll get there in the end.
Looking forward to seeing which new start you choose.

I love the elephant and it's nice to see them all together.
I can't believe that's 1000 stitches!

The elephant is very sweet, shame it has to go on the back burner as I love giraffes! Peace is really growing nicely too

I hope you can find the fabric you need to finish your Ark! You've come so far with the set, it would be wonderful if you could complete it! But if you can't, at least you have a good balance for display, with the center ark and then a pair of animals and single elephant on each side :)

That elephant is such a nice addition to Noah's Ark. And the little sheep has seen some progress, too.
If you tell me what fabric you need I could go through my fabric stash and have a look. I might have what you are looking for.
