Joining The Sisterhood

In case you wern't aware, there is a traveling pattern that's been going around since 2007. It's called The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pattern and the premise is, each 'sister' receives the pattern, stitches it and offers the pattern up on her blog to travel to the next 'sister'. I don't remember how long I've been trying for her, but it's been a while; I've been following her around and put my name in every time she comes up. Carolyn had her last and when she was finished and offered to pass her on...my name was drawn! WooHoo! Ms. Sisterhood arrived safely yesterday and I hope to be able to start stitching her very soon.


I thought it would be fun for you to see where all this started so I looked it up. If you go to the 2007 posts of Harmien's blog and scroll down, nearly all the way to the bottom, you can see where The Sisterhood first appeared.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Congratulations on finally getting the pattern! It would have been neat if they had included a sheet of paper from the very beginning, with the name, and/or at least the town where the pattern had landed, so that everyone taking part could see how far it has traveled.

It is a cute one, and now I'm anxious to see your version of it stitched up!

No pressure though! lol

Have fun!
