Sisterhood of the Traveling Pattern

The sign-ups are now closed and the winner will be announced 08/16!
Look what I finished last night! Yes...finally Ms. Sisterhood is ready to travel! I feel like I've kept her forever and wish I had been able to get her finished quicker but she is now ready for the next lucky stitcher. Would everybody please, let people know by posting about it on your blog?

I have gotten many compliments on the fabric, which I tea-dyed. Perhaps I'll show you how I did it in another post. I used plain-old, everyday DMC as listed, except for Ms. Sisterhoods' hair and subbed 729 to make it blond. (I think it's a little too bright.) I was going to choose fancy overdyed cottons but when I pulled the DMC to match I found I really liked those colors! This was a truly comforting stitch and I was so thrilled to be a part of the Sisterhood!





This is the path she has taken on her journey:

Just making a few visits to see TUSAL members. I always love stopping by here. The new Hello Elephant is darling!!! DD is an elephant collector I might try to do this up for her, thanks for the cuteies! I am enjoying seeing this "Sisterhood" pop up all over the place it's such a sweet chart.

I see you got Olga's "Wisteria", I'm thinking really hard on that one, just need to get some WIPs finished up first.

And your Totally Useless Container is super! Keep up the good work.
