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:
- You must have a blog.
- Comment on this post only, saying you would like to be part of the Stitcherhood.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
