A New Traveling Pattern

There once was a Traveling Pattern. It went all around the world traveling from stitcher to stitcher and I was blessed to be a part of it. You can read my experience here. Sadly, the last stitcher to have her (in March of last year?) has apparently flaked and has not sent the pattern on. I'm going to be kind and not mention who she is but I am really rather angry about the situation. Not to mention incredibly saddened by the loss.

There is now another copy of that design circulating in our blogging world. I thought I had bookmarked or written down who currently had it but I can't find it. I am sure someone will spot it and let me know! EDIT: I knew someone would come through for me! Thanks to Cath!!! ~ The New Sisterhood pattern is Currently with: Nan of Nan's Needlework Notions and is being sent to the next stitcher!

I thought it might be fun to start my own Traveling Pattern. I bought a couple of designs and when they arrived I chose this one. Yes, it's my Count Your Blessings that I started last week! It has few colors that are easily changed to suit the current stitcher and is a simple and quick stitch that shouldn't be burdensome. Easy to arrive, stitch and send to the next person. Sound like fun?

Daffycat's finish:
Design ~ Count Your Blessings
Designer ~ Shakespeare's Peddler
Fabric ~ 28 count mystery tea-dyed
Fiber ~ DMC

If you would like to be part of this new Traveling Pattern there are a few rules:

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

2. By leaving this 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 can't 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 won't 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.


The Traveling Pattern has been stitched by:


1. Sharon of It's Daffycat, Oklahoma, USA
2. Karen of Karen's Handiwork, South Carolina, USA
3. Patty of Hanging On By A Thread, Florida, USA
4. Terri of Chocolates for Breakfast, Stitching for Lunch, unknown location
5. Lynda of A Cozy Little Place for Stitching, Oregon, USA
6. Nataly of Nataly's Needle Creations, Massachusetts, USA
7. Erin of Fairy Tales & French Knots, New York, USA
8. Jo of Serendipititous Stitching, Suffolk, UK
9. Mouse of Tales Of A Stitching Mouse, South Yorkshire, UK
10. ??? Maybe you!



If you would like a chance to be the next stitcher please leave a comment! The next stitcher will be chosen on Sunday, February 13, 2011. I will try to keep up with the travels and fill in the next stitcher in the list as it goes along.

Thank you for visiting my blog today

Robin said...

I can't believe you posted about the sisterhood of the traveling pattern! Just last night I thought would do an internet search to try find out where it was. I figured it moved on to a blog I didn't follow. I entered e erytime it was moving hoping to be selected. Please count me in!

Cath said...

Erica said...

Ooh! Ooh!

I contacted the person who has the original travelling pattern last year and got no reply, and that was when she was still activly blogging *sigh*
Thank you for starting another one

Jill said...

I am sorry to hear that the first Traveling Pattern is AWOL. I enjoyed being a part of it. I would love to participate in this one. Thanks for starting a new one. Take care.

omashee aka Barb said...

Sharon, I would love to be chosen to be next in your Stitcherhood. This would become my priority stitch. What a lovely chart you have picked. I also was in the "missing" Traveling Pattern list and finally bought my own pattern. It was "not" moving in a timely fashion!!

Ranae said...

Awww! that's too bad about the traveling pattern.
I have passed on a few charts to stitch and then offer on their blog to pass on, I have never seen any of them passed on.
I would love to be part Count Your Blessings.
I have been meaning to see if I can join the Totally Useless
Take Care!

mollycaff said...

What a great idea! I'd love to join in please!

Karen said...

Such a cute design! What a great idea to continue the tradition in a new way. Would love to be considered too.... happy stitching.

Sharon said...

If you are sending overseas I would love to do it too!!!! It is a neat little pattern...

Jodie said...

This is such a cool idea! I'd love to join :-)

Barbi said...

Count me in! Fun...fun...fun!!!

Lynn said...

Ok so this is different than a round robin? I like this idea, very cool. Yes I could keep up with it, it's small enough to be able to do in a timely fashion. I hear you on the dropping the ball. I have been in a few round robins and while I did get one back, there were a couple I never saw or heard from again. VERY disappointing. I understand life getting in the way, but communication is key! I heads up would be nice. Ok rant over! I will be watching to see what happens next....

Faye said...

I would love to be involved in stitching this and passing it...I have actually stitched it and gave it as a gift, so this would give me a chance to stitch it again!!! Thanks for the chance, Faye

Maggie said...

I did much the same thing with a chart, last year i think it was, it was stitched by the first 3 ladies and i know where it is now but the person in question is not aswering emails and no longer posts to her blog. There are still people waiting to stitch ths chart.

I hope you will have better luck this time. I will pass on being included if you don't mind, i only have limited time for stitching at the moment, i will look forward to seeing all the lovely finishes though :-)

Blu Stitcher said...

My inside voice is screaming, PICK ME, PICK ME, But my outside voice would love to ask you to be a part of this. This would really be a lot of fun to watch everyone's progress and to see any changes they made in theirs.

Great finish, and what a great idea to keep this pattern moving on. If you are mailing out to overseas, I would love to be included. I've never taken part in a group stitching thing before :)Thank you!

Erin said...

Oh, I love this pattern!! I'm in for the stitcherhood...it is small enough that even I should be able to finish and mail it on in a timely fashion!

Crystal said...

This sounds like fun, I would love a chance to be included on this adventure.

Pumpkin said...

Well that's not very nice! Why do people have to spoil the fun? :o(

Lovely finish Sharon! Please don't put my name in the hat. I just wanted to comment though :o)

Myra said...

I am so glad to see you starting this. I followed the original pattern until it stopped and had hoped to eventually get a chance to stitch it. Please consider me to be the next in line to stitch yours - I promise to send it along in a timely manner. I love the design you have chosen. :o)

Carol R said...

So sad that the Travelling Pattern has come to a halt and I am so glad I scanned it so I had a record of the comments written on it before I sent it on.
I would love a chance to become part of Stitcherhood so please enter me into the draw.

Dee said...

Very cute project. I'm not signing up, but will be very interested in watching it's progress.

Have fun!

Ziggyeor said...

Cute Stitch. I would like to be a part of the traveling pattern. I like the house and the gate and I'm thinking of something to change in the middle. So I could stitch the all around and then send the pattern on ;)

I like this idea more than a round robin. I'd feel a little bit uneasy sending a big package with my fabric, threads and patterns and not get it back.

Angela P said...

First of all Sharon what a wonderful finish! I would be honoured if you would pick me for the next stitcher in the "Stitcherhood" :)

nima said...

i would love to be a part of it. please add me for the draw. thank you

Courtney said...

Please pic me! I'm already picking out colors!! <3

Oh, I can't believe the Sisterhood has disappeared. I am so very disappointed.
Now for the new pattern - I am jumping up and down, waving my hands and yelling "PICK ME PICK ME! Maybe that will help!!!!

Marlene said...

I would love to be included in this round robin, but I will understand if you fel sending it to UK, is too much. In which case i will watch with intrest.

You are so good in blogland, keeping us all together with fun and projects.

FIONA said...

Sharon, I would love to join the travelling pattern group! I would love to be included in the opportunity to stitch and would happily post it along to the next person! Great fun to see where it goes!

Billie said...

Because I liked the original pattern of the "sisterhood", I started my own little round in our German cross stitch forum. So far 15 ladies have stitched the design since I started it on its way last April. And boy, what the ladies came up with... I know where the original pattern is located right now and I am very interested if it will ever get moving again. Great design you picked to send around!!!

Rachel S said...

Sorry about the fist pattern. I tried to do that a few years ago, and mine met the same fate. I rebought everything and resent it out, and told them I wasn't replacing it a second time. I don't know where it is now. I don't get why people don't send patterns along when they know better.

stitchenmylifeaway said...

I'd like to participate. I'm willing to drop what ever I'm doing to stitch it up and on the next stitcher. My blogging is getting better and I will continue to become more active. I hope you will consider me.

Happy stitching
Shay

Kathy said...

I would love to be included in the "sisterhood" for Count Your Blessings. I participated in one last year (Live Simply by Primitive Needle) but I don't know where it is now. I had passed it on and that's the last I heard. There is another one that I do hope surfaces one day. It was an OOP pattern too.

Thanks for considering me. :)

Julie said...

Its always a shame when people dont follow the rules!

Hope you gets lots of ladies to join in with this one.

Nan said...

It was great fun to stitch in the "Sisterhood". I would love the opportunity to stitch this design as well. Thanks for starting a new pattern on its way around the world. It will be fun to see where it ends up. It really is a a great feeling to be a part of it.

vEr0n!c@ said...

Kat said...

I had been following the Travelling Pattern and was wondering what had happened to it. I'm disappointed to learn it has been "lost". I'd love to be included in the new sisterhood, but not sure if my blog is up to snuff. :)
