Hearts and Sloths

You may remember the sloth I knitted for Naomi in January, (pattern from Fiona Goble), no sooner had I shown it to her than one of her friends asked if I could knit her one as well, so here we have sloth #1 and sloth #2.

It's reveal day for the Needlecraft Haven Monthly Challenge. This month we all stitched this design from The Primitive Hare.

Mine is stitched in Carrie's Creations Sorbet (with the key in GAST Wrought Iron) and finished with some lovely deep rose coloured ric rac and a little black bow.
The gallery of everyone's finishes can be found here
And finally, this is the little heart shaped ornament I stitched for the Secret Sweethearts blog hop.

Design from Le Grenier de Zoe, stitched with orphan threads on Crafty Kitten Vintage Petals linen, and trimmed with some vintage lace.

Those sloths are so sweet! They're my favourite animals to visit at the zoo, so graceful and they always seem to be smiling to themselves!
I love your ornament with the pink ric rac, what a perfect finish, and the little heart is very pretty.
