My obsession with HAED and crochet and yarn and stuff . . . . .

Ta da!! The travelling pattern is ready to move on :-)

At long last ... I have stitched the travelling pattern!!!!!! Now c'mon, don't faint - I really have done it!  Here's a little bit:

And here it is finished!  For some reason, the colour of the fabric has been totally lost in photographing, it's a pretty pale lime hand-dyed but it looks a patchy grey to me here :-(  I've stitched this one over one on 28ct with Carrie's Creations hand-dyed thread in Berry Blast.  I really like the way it has turned out :-)

So, the pattern now travels on - after a slightly longer than anticipated stopover in frosty Oxfordshire. 

If you would like to receive the pattern next, please leave a comment below and I will draw the winner next Wednesday which is the 25th of January.  You should note that if you would like to be part of the travelling pattern there are a few rules:

  1. You must have a blog. 
  2. Comment on this post only, saying you would like to be part of the Stitcherhood.
  3. You must have an active blog to participate, if you have a blog but never post on it you won't be chosen to be the next stitcher. 
  4. The stitcher who will receive the travelling pattern must stitch it (within an acceptable time frame) finish it and display the finished piece for all to see.
  5. Then the stitcher must offer up the traveling pattern for another stitcher to use and it will be off on its travels again.
Finally, as I have had the pattern soooo long and I feel ever so slightly guilty, I am adding a little giveway to the winner :-) You will also receive a RAK of your favourite Heaven and Earth Designs QS or SK.  Or if HAEDs don't float your boat, then a voucher for an online needlework store.

Happy stitching everyone, and good luck!

PS  Please feel free to tell your followers about the pattern and the giveaway!
