LHN 2013 Little Sheep Virtues
The Little Sheep Virtues will release one a month, January through December. Each chart design contains the following. . . . . .at least one sheep (of course), a virtue (of course), an optional button and at least one heart.
The designs are mounted onto wool and finished as pillows. Wool seems appropriate, don't you think? There are two fabrics used throughout. Starting with January and skipping every even month, the fabric is 30 count R&R Dark Chino. Starting in February and skipping every odd month, the fabric used is 30 count Cocoa from Weeks Dye Works. Special supplies are listed below. The threads used throughout are DMC: 221, 420, 780, 822, 869, 924, 936, 3011, 3012, 3031, 3041, 3782, 3828, and ecru.
Each design is 61 x 61 and were designed to be stitched as individual pieces. However I kept those of you in mind who like to stitch a series on a whole cloth so my advice is to stitch three across and four down. Space them however you wish on whatever fabric you choose. The dimensions will help you to calculate size.
I only carry Weeks Dye Works linen 30 ct and 35 ct Cocoa. The quality of Weeks dye Works linen is better than R & R Reproduction linen.
