Yet Another Traveling Pattern



Boo ~ I completely forgot about posting for Theme-a-licious yesterday! I blame it on having finishes to show and not actually showing them! Our theme for April was to work on our biggest projects. You might remember, I got drawn for three Traveling Patterns at once so I re-arranged my goal to include the Amazonian task of finishing 3 TP designs before the end of April. I'm tickled pink to say I did it!

The first Traveling Pattern, Thankful.
The second Traveling Pattern, The Busy Needle.
And presenting the third Traveling Pattern, Tending the Blooms:


Design ~ Tending the Blooms
Designer ~ Shepherd's Bush
Fabric ~ 32 count Daffycat-Dyed Belfast Linen
Fiber ~ DMC

I screwed up the row of satin stitches somewhere. I never could figure out where or what I was doing wrong. So, I shrugged my shoulders and went on. Funnily enough, life didn't end.

When Gracie sent me the Traveling Pattern she included this little RAK of wonderful goodies. Sweet counting pins, silver charms, a fun bumblebee design and the coolest vine- shaped trimming ever. Thank you Grace! I love it all!


Oh hey, you know what this means? Yup, I have to send this design on it's way to the next stitcher! If you would like to be the next to stitch this design leave a comment on this post asking to be included. I will choose someone in the next few days ~ so hurry!

Next up for Theme-a-licious is:

May Memories
Remember when you took that class? Or decided to commemorate that event? And then abandoned your poor WIP? Take a stroll down memory lane by working on it again.


I'm at a loss. I really don't have any abandoned projects, unless you count Peacock Tapestry? It's not abandoned ~ just disliked ~ lol. I have to be really "in the mood" to stitch on that ~ so not gonna happen. Maybe I will work on my Prairie Schooler 12 Days ornaments and/or my Finery of Nature instead? Or maybe something else?  I guess I will surprise you...

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

You could also work on your oldest WIP...but the way you crank things out, that's what? Two weeks or something? =) Seriously, what about that OTHER peacock in your list...the Cypher!

I think finishing all those travelling patterns was an Amazonian task!! Thankful is taking me FOREVAH!

Count me in for the Travelling Pattern please.
I've stitching on the theme "Making Memories" for May, so things which will have special memories for people, either the baby sampler, a memoriam piece or something to remember a stitching friend with (charts gifted to me).
Looking forward to seeing your choices.

Oh how pretty is that? I love it!! Just wonderful! I won't do the traveling pattern though, just because I know I'm no good at getting something stitched when it's hanging over my head. lol!

Lovely Traveling pattern finish! I will not put my name in the hat...just got a whole wack of back issues of GOFT so I've got tons of designs to choose from. What sweet gifts from Gracie!!! Do counting pins really help? What if you miscount the counting pin spot? LOL!!

Very cute finish, but I do have a soft spot for SB. Well, the theme just says a stroll down memory lane - it doesn't say how far down memory lane you have to go.
