The Travelling Pattern Is Ready To Move On!

Just a short while ago I was lucky to be selected by Julie of Julie's Stitchyknitter Journal to be the next recipient of one of the Travelling Patterns out there in the blogosphere.  I stitched it up in pretty quick order, and finished it up on Sunday

Here's what mine looks like all stitched up:

Stitched with: GAST where I had it DMC where I didn't
Stitched on 28ct Vintage Linen

If you would like to be the next Travelling Pattern stitcher there are a few rules that need to be adhered to :

1. Comment on this post saying you would like to be part of The Stitcherhood

2. By leaving the above comment you agree (if you are chosen) to stitch the design and send it along to the next person in a timely manner. If this means dropping everything in your rotation to concentrate on this project, so be it. If you cant bring yourself to do this don't sign up.

3. You must have an active blog to participate. if you have a blog but never post to it you wont be chosen to be the next stitcher.

4. This is a giveaway type traveling pattern. That means you must follow it from blogger to blogger to enter each time it is ready to send along. Commenting on this post doesn't make you a guaranteed part of The Stitcherhood.

After I finished up the Travelling Pattern, I wanted a quick little Easter stitch.  I had received this little freebie from another blogger some time ago and thought it was the perfect little stitch.  Sorry its a crappy picture!

Yes, I agree to stitch it quickly, to send it forward quickly, etc. I have left messages before and never got chosen. This is the first that I heard you needed to follow the chart. Most times I never saw where it went. I do love the pattern. It would go well in my house.

Two great finishes and I'd love the chance for the travelling pattern to come here to Ireland. :)

What a cute little Easter egg.

Please add me to the drawing. I would love to stitch this pattern.

Clare - Aimetu said...

This is a great idea, I have heard Julie talk about it but didn't really understand how it works. I'd love to be included, my blog is Aimetu's Stitching.

Chris said...

Wonderful finishes Dani!!

Very cute finishes. I really like the egg! I can't drop everything, so please don't enter me in the drawing.

Sally said...

Love both your finishes Dani. Please don't enter me in the drawing as I've been part of the stitcher hood with this one :)

Maureen said...

cute finish - can you count me in for the travelling pattern please!

What a nice design this is. Please, count me in.

Very cute finishes.

It's amazing all the places that the pattern has been.

Susan said...

I'd love to be part of the Stitcherhood and promise to stitch this one up quickly and send it along. I certainly need the reminder to count my blessings as my husband has had a frustrating health issue and we are dealing with an elderly relative.

I always enjoyed your posts on one of the ezboards (Theresa Wentzler or the Rotation Stitchers--can't remember which one) and am glad to have found your blog.

Daffycat said...

Yay! Your version looks fantastic, Dani! I can't wait to see where is goes next!

mdgtjulie said...

Please don't enter me in the drawing, as I can't possibly abandon my rotation, but I wanted to say grats on the finish. You're awesome! And, btw, the freebie color scheme is great. (It also happens to be my fave football team's colors, lol. What a coincidence!!) Really, grats on both finishes. You rock!

I'd love to be part of the Stitcherhood! Your version looks great, as does your cute Easter stitch

Lindsay said...

Lovely stitching as always Dani.

I'd love to be next to join the stitcherhood

Bekca said...

I'd love to get involved with the Stitcherhood, I think it's a brilliant idea! Thank you very much. Gorgeous little finish Dani, congrats.
Best wishes.

Julie said...

Great finish on the Travelling Pattern.

Annette-California said...

OH YES! I would love to get to be in "The Stitcherhood" No problem meeting all your criteria. I would have it stitched in no time because I love this pattern. Just haven't treated myself to it.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I'm already in the Stitcherhood! Looking forward to seeing where it goes next.
Love your Easter finish too.
