First finishes of 2012 and The Travelling Pattern

Doing a Happy Dance for my first finish of the year, Count your Blessings by Shakespeare's Peddler. This is the travelling pattern as started by Sharon (Daffycat).
Sorry about the pictures on this post by the way, it's a grey old day and I can't get the colours to come out right, it's nowhere near as dark and dull as this in real life. Also the house isn't really curved ;D

Do you want to join the fun and be the next stitcher of The Travelling Pattern?

These are the rules:-

1. comment on this post saying you would like to be part of the stitcherhood

2. by leaving the above 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 eveything in your rotation to concentrate on this project, so be it. if you cant bring yourself to do this done sign up

3.  you must have a active blog to partcipate. if you have a blog but never post to it you wont 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 doesnt make you a guaranteed part of the stitcherhood.

I'll pick a winner on Sunday 15th Jan

In other news, I got tired of how sad and bare the house looked without it's Christmas finery, so; copying an idea I found on Pinterest  (yeah, I know,  I've got a Pinterest problem); I whipped up this  "decorative accent". All previous comments about the photographs apply but it's rather "me" don't you think?

I'd love a chance to be part of the Stitcherhood and stitch the traveling pattern.

I love Pinterest! You're not the only person that has a small problem with it. I wasted a few hours there this afternoon. Your "wreath" is great.

Nicola said...

I love the knitting wreath, an adorable accessory for the home and a great way to use up oddments of wool. Off to Truro today - have you checked out House of Fabrics oddments bins Christine? Last time I had some lovely bundles of fabric for for a few pounds, they came in so handy for finishes.

That knitting wreath is SOOOO cool! I love Pinterest--it is so fun!

Great job on the Travelling pattern!

Lindsay said...

Yours looks fab and I'd love a chance to take part in the Stitcherhood

The Knitting Cross Stitcher said...

Gorgeous finish and such a great idea.

Susan said...

It's taking all my willpower to resist Pinterest, and seeing the cute wreath you've done doesn't help.

Please pick me for the Traveling Pattern. It's high time it came back across the pond!

Linda said...

I would love to be the next to take the Traveling Pattern and I think I would like to become a member of the Sisterhood but . . .
My name is currently in a lottery to become a member of a tailoring/garment construction project and I have to clear my schedule to be able to take it on.
Can we talk about this at some unspecified time in the future?
