The Travelling Pattern....where will it go next?

Ahh, the joys of having to start a new project!!! Yes, I've had to start a new a new project....it's in the rules...you have to stitch it within two weeks....so what else could I do but get this kitted up and start stitching! Heehee....life is hard! :)

So, the traveling pattern started originally with Mii  at Mii Stitch and came to me from Barb at Blissfully Stitching  who very kindly added some extra goodies to the package....



Thanks Barb....I love everything! The little heart shaped charms, which are just a bit too small to see on the picture, say 'made with love'....how cute is that?

Anyhoo,  since I don't have any of the overdyed threads that the sample is stitched with I had to use the DMC equivalents which are marked on the chart. I decided that I wasn't loving the colour choices and decided to pick my own colours. Here's the colours that were recommended...


...and here's my choice of colours...


...a slightly softer, more pastel selection...and with a baby pink aida which is barely visible on the photo.

This is quite a quick-to-stitch design, and here's where I am after a couple of evenings stitching...


...I do own an iron, although you would never know from this picture!

So...onto the best part....who'd like to be next to stitch this design? 

Yup, the travelling pattern needs to be on it's merry way to some other lucky stitcher. The rules are quite simple....


  • If you are the next person to receive the travelling pattern, you have to be able to stitch it within two weeks of receiving it. 
  • You must  pass the chart on to another stitcher and be willing to post it anywhere in the world. 


Sooo, please comment on this post if you'd like to be in with  chance of being the next stitcher. Please be sure to add an email address if I can't email you from your blog link. You have until the end of this month to comment and I will announce the winner on March 1st 2014....good luck!


Until next time...happy stitching!
