La-D-Da "ABCD"

Here is my latest finish.  This is a travelling pattern that is travelling to selected stitchers around the world who signed up to be a part of it.  The chart belongs to Peggy Lee and there is a journal travelling along with it which shows a picture of each stitchers finish and a note to Peggy Lee.  What a great keepsake she will have at the end.

Stitched using Carrie's Creation thread "Old Vision" on 28ct beige Jobelan.
I really dont know what it will be finished as yet.  Any suggestions?
Until next time, happy stitching.
Lisa

Great finish Lisa! I love the floss color :) How about a long pillow finish with a simple edging?

How very nice! In my quilting days we did something similar ... a group of us connected by the computer sent a quilt center to the next person on the list who added a border & then sent it to the next person who maybe added a few more blocks, etc. We sent a long a journal as well so each person could record their thoughts but they also included a photo of themselves working on the quilt. Fun!

Oh my, this is lovely!
I get more and more excited each time I see my chart travel to a new stitchers home. I absolutely can't wait to read what everyone has written in the journal.

Beautiful stitching Lisa!

That's such a beautiful pattern and you used a great thread colour to stitch it. Yes, it's really great idea that Peggy Lee had with this travelling pattern.
I'd sew it into a long pillow, because I'm fond of all these little pillows.

Carol said...

Wonderful finish, Lisa--and I love the idea of a little journal accompanying the chart as it travels around the world :)

Very pretty colors Lisa. You could finish it as a flatfold, if it matches the decor in one of your rooms. I know there are tutorials out there for them...
