Well, I have finished the travelling pattern ,and I have to say that I loved every single stitch , it really is a lovely chart to stitch ,very relaxed and fun .
  I used the recommended DMC threads and a piece of 28 ct fabric from my stash .
 So ,the travelling pattern is now ready to set off again . If you are interested in being the nest person to stitch this chart , please leave a comment on this post only , I will announce who it will be in just over a week , with the holidays being upon us, I'll give people a chance to reply.

 We have had some lovely weather this week , just hope it stays around for a while. Yesterday , whilst pegging washing out, I took advantage of the lovely sky and took some great cloud pics ,it didn't look real, but made the sky look so vast , it was almost breath taking .

  I also took some photos of the chooks . I won't put all of them on here ,so here is one of all the girls together .

 Thanks for dropping by , don't forget to leave a comment to be in with a chance of getting the travelling pattern.
 Take care ,

Love the "Travelling pattern" and know I would enjoy stitching it! Your chickens look great, and the beautiful sky pics too - there is ALWAYS time for another pattern to sew, especially whilst watching sport on TV the next 2 weeks - it is like a summer bonus!

Cath, I found your blog by following the traveling pattern. Your finish is great and I love the other photos in this post. It would be great to stitch the traveling pattern. We have had a lot of good things happen in our family recently and the pattern would be a great reminder not to take those things for granted.

Lovely finish, the chocks look cute too!! There is a chart in this month's issue of cross stitch crazy that made me think of you! It's a stitching chicken!! x

Barb said...

The finish is great and the sky, quite beautiful!!

Great finish on the travelling pattern. Please don't put my name in though, I'm one of the stitchers who is lucky enough to have already had it

Your finish looks lovely. I would love the chance to 'win' the travelling pattern to stitch.

Your version of the travelling pattern looks superb. Please don't include me, I have already been lucky enough to have stitched it.

Grats on the finish, but don't enter me in the Travelling Pattern giveaway. I'm not willing to put my rotation on hold to stitch it! (I'm sure it would languish for years at my house, lol.) Love your sky piccys too. They're beautiful. And the chooks look like happy girls.
