The Traveling Pattern Is Ready.......

for the next stitcher!

I put the last few stitches on LHN - Summer Splendor today. I wanted the design to be small so my version is stitched on 40ct linen hand-dyed by Nina. It will be finished into a needlebook.

Design: LHN - Summer Splendor
Fabric: 40ct linen hand-dyed by Nina
Threads: DMC and CC

A closer look at my finish!

Now if you would like to be the next stitcher to stitch this gorgeous chart please leave a note specifically stating that you are interested in the drawing for this chart in your comments. The only requirements are:

1. You must have an active blog
2. Please agree to stitch it promptly
3. Please pass it along to a fellow stitcher via a drawing on your blog
4. Please post your finish and the history of where the chart has travelled like this:

1. Kathy at "Kathy's Sit and Stitch"
2. Carol at "Stitching Dreams"
3. Lisa at "Lisa V's Lounge"
4. Ellen at "Stitch Passion"

I will draw a name on Friday 31 August. I am excited about this draw, where will the pattern be traveling to?

Until then, happy stitching!

an update! I have been procrastinating for months, just being lazy ha ha!

Now, to show you what I have been stitching in the last couple of months. I finally put the last few stitches to LK's 6 Fat Men. I really enjoyed stitching these snowmen.

A close up of the last snowman!

The size of this project is just right for a cushion. I thought of making it into a cushion cover but the Crescent Colors used are not colorfast! Maybe frame it???

Next, some hardanger stitchings. Here are two doilies!

Design: From Permin
Fabric: 32ct Dusty Rose Belfast Linen
Thread: DMC Perle

The next doily is a round one. It is supposed to be a cake tray doily, about 8.5 inches in diameter.

Design: From German Hardanger magazine
Fabric: 28ct Lilac Meran
Thread: DMC Perle

A close up of the sunflower, the petals are actually cross stitches!

Two other small finishes to show, BBD's Souvenir de France and Dany's Pins! I intend to finish both as pincushions. Souvenir de France is stitched over 1, so it is going to be a tiny pincushion!

Design: BBD's freebie
Fabric: 25ct Comar
Thread: CC Wild Berries

Design: Dany
Fabric: 32ct antique white Belfast
Thread: DMC

This one was pulled out from the wip's basket and finished in the last month!

I had some great mails in the last couple of months.

I received a wonderful RAK from Lillie! I love boxes and I saw this one on Lillie's blog. She so graciously sent me one together with a beautiful felt needlebook! Thank you so much, Lillie, for these gifts!

I have selected and kitted a wonderful BBD design(from Mary Ann Blackburn leaflet) to stitch for this box, just don't know when I will start and finish it ha ha!

Gifts from Doris - Blossom Time by Papillon Creations kitted with fabric and threads and Woodland Walk chart by The Drawn Thread. Thank you, Doris, for these great designs!

I also received a wonderful giveaway package from Robin with lots of beautiful charts and fabrics! Thank you, Robin, for these great gifts!

I have just received the Traveling Pattern - LHN's Summer Splendor- from Lisa in Australia. Watch this space for the drawing if you want to be the next stitcher!

Thank you for visiting my blog and I love to read all your lovely comments! I have some problems with the Follower Gadget, it does not show but you still can follow my blog.

Happy Stitching till the next update!
