Autumn 2 & The Travelling Pattern

I received news that Jan had received the Autumn piece I stitched for her in the Seasonal Exchange.

The Workbasket - Quaker Acorn
Stitched on cream evenweave using GAST "Acorn"
Finished as a cube

I am happy to say that Jan received it safely and loves it.

Next up ..... The Travelling Pattern is up for grabs again!
I finished up this design the other day and had an old frame from an antique store that it just fitted into.  I have mounted it on the wall above my ornie tree.  Here is a picture of my finished piece.

Waxing Moon Designs "My Needle and My Floss"
Stitched on 28ct cream evenweave using DMC

Now it is time for the Travelling Pattern to travel to a new destination.  Here are the rules:

*  You need to leave a comment on this post if you would like to be the next recipient of the Travelling Pattern, email address to please.
*  I will draw a name on 27 November 2010 and post on my blog the person who will next be receiving the Travelling Pattern.
*  The receiver of the Travelling Pattern must stitch it (within an acceptable time frame), finish it and display the finished piece for all to see.
*  Then the receiver must offer up the Travelling Pattern for another stitcher to use and it will be off on its travels again.

So far this pattern has travelled to the US, Australia and Germany.
So if you would love to be a part of this fun journey, dont forget to leave your details.
Until next time, happy stitching

Your Quaker Acorn is so pretty, Lisa--haven't seen that one before. I just love the little checked ribbon and the leaf button--really completes the piece nicely.

The frame you chose for My Needle and Floss is just perfect--I"m sure what ever lucky stitcher gets the pattern next will be thrilled!
