Who wants to be #41?

This is a fly by speedy post, hanging my head in shame ........I was supposed to post about the travelling pattern first sent out by Daffycat over three years ago - Count Your Blessings by Shakespeare's Peddler - I received it from Karoline far too long ago and life got in the way mixed in with a horrible dose of the "I can't be bothereds".  I am so sorry, I do hope someone is still reading my blog, lol, despite the long absence.  I will draw a name next Tuesday, September 2nd.  The only requirements are to stitch it quickly (which I did, lol), and then post a picture so that the next person can be chosen. Oh, and have an active blog.......so yes, I can see you are wondering how I came to be chosen.......!

So far the chart has gone from Oklahoma to lots of other states, Canada, England, Greece, South Africa, Ireland, France and Spain.  Where to next, I wonder.....somewhere on the Pacific Rim, maybe?

This is my version on a lovely piece of Cobblestone linen bought at Acorn and Threads several years ago.  I changed a couple of the colours to use what was in my stash.....


The fence doesn't show up that well, does it, much better in real life.

Well, enough rabbiting on.....leave a comment, saying you would like to be the next person to stitch and send on this sweet little chart.

I am writing another blog post (yes, really!) to explain away the long absence and what the WT and his Missus have been up to this summer of 2014.

  3. Welcome back. I am looking forward to hearing your excuses/reasons for depriving us of your company for so long.
    And no, I am an appreciator rather than a creator these days - but do count my blessings.
